Head Coach - National Cycling Centre Hamilton

The National Cycling Centre Hamilton (NCCH) is one of Canada’s five nationally designated cycling centres dedicated to the identification, recruitment and development of Canada’s high performance cycling athletes.

As a key regional high performance and development centre in Ontario, the NCCH works with local and provincial coaches and athletes in order to best identify, recruit and develop talent and to help prepare coaches and athletes for success at the local, provincial, national and international levels. The NCCH is committed to fairness and ethical conduct in sport.

Since its incorporation in 2005, the NCCH has coached 15 athletes to the Canadian National Team or to medals at National Championship events.
