Building a life of cycling

The Louis Passfield Memorial Scholarship Program

I started coaching as a way of giving back to the cycling community in return for the support I had as a young rider, and as a way of helping the next generation of riders avoid some of the mistakes that I made. One of my inspirations for wanting to give back in this way was one of my first coaches, Louis Passfield. He helped me grow as a person as well an athlete, and had a huge influence on my life and career. He became a great friend and mentor, and I want to continue his legacy by offering 3 free coaching scholarships each year in his name for Junior riders.


Riders need to be ambitious and driven, but also want to work hard on their life skills and communication. If you are interested please email [email protected] with a cover letter telling me about you, your time in cycling so far and any results or fitness tests you have.

Our approach

Our approach is to work with each young athlete and find out what they would like to do in the sport over the next 2 – 4+ years and work with them on hitting goals each year.

We aim to teach them to question more and find a path that works for them.

This program is supported by many people that have the same goal, to see young riders get good advice and support when they need it at the development stage of their young lives.

We work with Provincial/State and National teams and fill the coaching role for supported athletes.


Keep up to date on our athletes.
