MONTREAL, QUEBEC – Speed Skating Canada is proud to unveil the skaters that have been selected to its National and NextGen short track teams for the upcoming 2023-24 season.

A total of 28 skaters representing three provinces earned a spot on their respective teams based on their national and international results from last season. The team selections were made in accordance with eligibility and selection criteria outlined in the relevant High Performance Bulletins.

As members of the National Program, these athletes will train full-time at the Maurice Richard Areana in Montreal under the guidance of a world-class coaching and support staff. Athletes will have access to an Integrated Support Team based out of the Institut national du sport du Québec, experts in sport science, exercise and medicine who will ensure that they are healthy, fit and psychologically ready for optimal performance both on and off the ice.
