Earlier today, Speed Skating Canada (SSC) announced a restructuring of coaching staff within its Short Track High Performance program. As a result, leading into the 2019-20 competition season, Éric Bédard will no longer helm the Canadian men’s National Team.


SSC is currently recruiting for the position of Head Coach within the Short Track program. Once this role is filled, the successful candidate and SSC staff will work to confirm the coaching structure going forward to the 2022 Olympic Games in Beijing, China. An interim transition plan is being developed with the current coaching staff and will be communicated shortly.
