Scott MacDonald steps down from his position at Athletics Canada

Scott MacDonald has resigned from his position as Athletics Canada’s Technical Lead. While he will no longer be with Athletics Canada, Scott will stay involved with the sport and has accepted the role of General Manager with Guelph’s Speed River Track & Field Club.

Scott has been an employee of Athletics Canada since October 2005. Over the years, he has served in the roles of Director of National Team Programs, High Performance Director and most recently Technical Director. During his tenure, Scott’s knowledge of the sport, work ethic and ability to build relationships with countless athletes, coaches, officials and staff has helped better the sport in this country. He has been a member of 17 National Teams (two Olympic Games, 10 IAAF World Championships, four Commonwealth Games and one IPC World Championships) helping deliver some of Canada’s best results of the modern era.

“It has been a great honour for me to serve athletes and coaches over my time at Athletics Canada. I was very honest in my interview 12 years ago that I wanted to leave my sport better than I found it,” said Scott. “I am incredibly encouraged with how far Canadian athletics has come. Nothing made me prouder than to work behind the scenes at the recent National Championships, seeing an energized, enthusiastic crowd cheering at the track I grew up on. From grassroots to the international stage, thank you to all of the athletes, coaches and colleagues who have made my time at Athletics Canada a tremendous experience. Now it is time for a new adventure, I will continue to work to make a positive impact on the sport with Speed River in Guelph.”

Scott’s last day with Athletics Canada is Friday, Sept. 29.
