CEC is proud to announce the selection and appointment of Libor Hroza as the 2021 High Performance Program Head Coach. Coach Hroza brings to the position deep knowledge and experience, both as an accomplished World Class Competitor and Elite Coach.

Born in the Czech Republic, Libor has competed at the World Level in Lead and in Speed for the past 10 years. He is a former World Record holder in Speed with multiple World Cup podiums to his credit, including two time European champion in speed climbing and a 2nd place at the World Championships in 2012. Libor is a certified Strength and Fitness instructor and a Climbing instructor.

Libor has coached athletes at various levels in all 3 disciplines for more than 8 years. In the last 4 years, he has become one of the most sought-after speed coaches in the world. He currently works with renowned World Cup athletes, including Adam Ondra (CZE), Sean McColl (CAN) and Alannah Yip (CAN).

His knowledge of training systems, performance planning and competition preparation will be an asset to the CEC HP Program. Libor resides in Saanich, BC and is proud to call Canada home since 2013.

NOTE ON High Performance Program, Intake #1

CEC regrets to inform athletes that the first intake to the HPP, which was scheduled for February 1, 2021, will be delayed by 2 weeks. This short delay is to ensure proper implementation of the Continuous National Ranking (CNR), and allow time for Coach Hroza to integrate into his new position and hit the ground running on February 15th, welcoming the first group of athletes to the 2021 High Performance Program!
