LVCC/Young Medalists has been the recipient of USA Cycling's Center of Excellence Award every year since 2007.  The Centers of Excellence title is awarded by USA Cycling to select Junior and U23 clubs/teams to recognize them for past performance and future potential.  These clubs/teams must meet strict requirements and cater to the needs of and development of young riders.  Earning this title qualifies a club/team for grants from USA Cycling's Development Foundation.  The Young Medalists meets these requirements by developing riders from young ages and developing mid to older junior riders into nationally and internationally competitive racers.  The Young Medalists continue to place its riders in USA Cycling National and Regional Talent ID Camps as well as preparing and placing riders with the USAC National Development Team (USA National Team).
