    1. What is a good/great coach? 1. He or she must have been coached by a successful winning coach who also came from a long line of successful winning coaches. 2. Must have at least 25 years of racing experience in his/her racing discipline. 3. Must have at least a Level III NCCP coaching government certificate (shows honesty and commitment). This is minimal. Then every year you coach is an experience bonus that can lead to success. People spending good money, ask for their qualifications and ask to see their licenses. We should stop playing games. Ontario has to start catching up to International standards.

  2. Chris Helwig, ON, Canada says:

    I was Coached by Ross Chafe, 1984 Olympic alternate. I have 24 years of racing experience, so 1 year short of your standard. I am Level III certified in both Road and Track. I have been Coaching successfuly since 1994, full time Coaching sice 2004.

  3. Ashley Barson, Ontario, Canada says:

    Ben Aroundo – Not sure what steamed this comment, but a stab at Chris’ coaching abilities are completely uncalled for. Chris has run a successful business and team for numerous years, which shouldn’t be discredited. He is qualified not only by the standards mentioned above, but also by those athletes that have chosen to make Chris their coach as a means of achieving their individual goals and success in sport.

    Not only was Chris successful as a racer himself, he has proven to be a GREAT coach over the years to many athletes across many disciplines of cycling, self-included. Understanding the simple fact that not everyone being coached has the desire to train at the elite level or sets a goal to represent their country on the world stage, he coaches varying levels of athletes and there is more to those standards which make up a GREAT coach, and Chris has those qualities.

    All the best in 2015 to the CoachChris.ca/Ted Velikonja/Trudell Medical team!
