Explore the intricacies of cycling excellence as former Cycling Canada Endurance Track Coach Jenny Trew and Mattamy National Cycling Center Director Chris Reid divulge insights on effective training groups, developmental ecosystems, and fostering a culture of excellence.
In this week’s episode of Fast Talk Femmes, our hosts bring together former Cycling Canada Endurance Track Coach Jenny Trew and Mattamy National Cycling Center Director Chris Reid. They share insights on building effective training groups, fostering cohesion, communicating with athletes, and optimizing training sessions to enhance performance.
Chemistry plays a crucial role in creating an ideal ecosystem for athletes and supporting personal development. The Mattamy National Cycling Center in Milton, Ontario, stands as a flourishing ecosystem and a valuable asset to cycling in Canada. Originally constructed for the Pan American Games, it later evolved into a development center and community hub under the leadership of Steve Bauer. When Bauer stepped down from his role, Chris and Jenny assumed their new positions.
Since then, the duo has further developed the Mattamy National Cycling Center into a hub for cycling excellence with help from Steve Bauer and Coach David Jack. In our conversation with Chris and Jenny, we explore strategies for attracting talent, building training groups, nurturing a developmental ecosystem, fostering cohesion, and instilling a culture of excellence. Tune in to see how you, too, can benefit from The Group Effect!
