High Performance Committee

Scott Kelly, Sue Haviland, David Jack, Rob MacEwen


The Ontario Cycling Associations High Performance program is responsible for the development of athletes from the Club and Provincial level to help them graduate to National and Trade teams.

The program focuses on those within the Train to Compete and Learn to Win stages of the Long Term Athlete Development model (LTAD). The High Performance committee and OCA staff guide the planning, evaluation and establishment of standards for Team Ontario programming. The committee is responsible for unbiased selection of athletes to the programs and projects, and reports via measurable performance objectives.

The program provides coaching assistance and manages the Quest for Gold Carding program. Through training camps and projects the program identifies and develops a pool of athletes with the goal towards medal potential at National Championship and Canada Summer Games.
