Welcome to My Rally Campaign
Hello my Friends,
About six years ago I decided to make a difference in young athletes lives, coaching little kids how to fiercely have fun on bikes, which eventually lead to coaching bigger kids on bikes. The past two years, because of my enthusiasm, devotion, and ability to connect and encourage young athletes, I’ve been given Provincial and National level opportunities to work across our country coaching for Cycling BC and mentoring bright shining stars and aspiring pro bike racers.
My desire burns deeper to learn what it takes for the next generation to come up through the ranks and punch it over the top into the pro categories. Setting aside a long lost chance of becoming a pro cyclist myself, I now have my sights set on going all the way in the coaching world.
Why I'm Raising Funds
I have huge coaching aspirations of going to the Olympics with road and track athletes, World Championships, and even a crack at World Tour level teams. It’s a long road full of climbs to get there, but I’ve found my route. I’ve been incredibly fortunate to be under the mentorship Richard Wooles, former Team Great Britain coach, and now making an affiliation with Zach Bell, 2 time Olympian, former pro cyclist, Rally Cycling pro womens team coach and the brains of Parcours Institute; a cycling academy to elevate the careers of aspiring cyclists and staff to the next level.
I’ve made the commitment to attend the 2017 Parcours Institute intensive 10 day camp based out of Oxnard California, where I will have the privilege of learning from past and present professional cyclists, a highly sought after sports nutritionist, one of the best sports psychologists known, not to mention media and business of cycling wizards known for the inception of past and present pro teams.
Putting the finishing touches on my NCCP coaching certification this year, and attending Parcours Institute will be big stepping stones towards developing my skills to a point where I can be a career long resource for many young athletes. It will also help open doors for other practical opportunities working with teams like Rally cycling alongside Zach, attending track World Cups with Cycling Canada and other pro team projects, this year could be the biggest stepping stone in my coaching career.
Although it’s not sitting there on a silver platter for the taking, it comes at a cost, and I’m prepared to work hard towards this goal,
...but I need your help.
The strength and long term success of our sport and its young athletes depends on the strength of the resources and the community around them. Your contributions will strengthen that community by helping more young athletes have access to a coach and mentor with a significantly better knowledge base as a result of my participation in these programs. The Parcours program is all about centralizing decades of sporting knowledge and passing it on to individuals to help facilitate success for local programs. Through my development you are helping build another conduit to that knowledge and network for a whole new group of athletes.
