Posted by Editoress on 04/11/10
The Canadian Cycling Association is pleased to announce the selection of Denise Kelly as National Women’s Development Endurance Coach.
In her new function, Denise will have a pivotal role in ensuring the identification of endurance women across the country while leading women’s cycling sport crossover initiatives in road, track and mountain biking. In addition, she will continue to coach top national team athletes and contribute to the development of women’s high performance programs, many of which will be linked to the Canadian Sport Centre Ontario.
Denise takes on this new role with the CCA after contributing to the development of cycling programs in Ontario as a Provincial Coach. She has been a participant in the Coaches of Canada - Women in Coaching - National Team Apprenticeship Program for the past three years and has assisted with numerous national team projects. Though she will be missed by the Ontario Cycling Association, she will have a tremendous impact at the national level and the CCA would like to thank the Ontario Cycling Association and the Canadian Sport Center Ontario for their on-going cooperation.
Denise has already begun her work at the CCA and is presently heading the women’s road development program in Belgium at the CCA’s European Training Base along side National Road Coach Vincent Jourdain.
