... which is part of this: http://www.nationalmtb.org/

This, however, only covers Mountain races.
Velodrome and Road are often hard to come by: there is no 'league' or organized effort for youth that I am aware of. We are, however, working on establishing these things starting with a few junior-only-highschool-specific focused organizations and, in intention, trying to spur new and similar groups that will eventually coalesce into a league.
For the time being, some larger clubs - such as Velo Club La Grange out here in So Cal, or Major Motion, for example - have strong junior programs available.
Best of luck.
In eastern Canada, here's the road calendar (in french, sorry Ted ): http://www.fqsc.net/evenements?tid=6&fi ... ef_nid=All"
The state series for kids under 16 is called Coupe du Québec Apogee.
For category under 12, the events are: skills course, circuit road race(roughly 11-15 km), and criterium (6 km).
Every race will combine the times from all three events. The leader in each category wears the leader's Jersey.
Here's an event technical guide (in french also, sorry...) http://www.fqsc.net/sites/default/files ... 2013_2.pdf"
BTW, yesterday, just bought an old Scattante Scandium XS frame at 950 g plus Easton fork at 330g for one of them...
I'm scavenging my CX project to build this one...
About 1 1/2hr drive from my place we have the Bagotville base, where they "park" the CF-18 planes...maybe you can be transfered there... Kidding !!!

Most of the youth races are less than 90 minutes from the U.S. border, around 1hr drive from MOntréal or Ottawa...
