It is with regret that Judo Ontario reports that Pedro Guedes the Judo Ontario Techinical Coach/Director & Judo Canada RTC Coach has recently taken on a new opportunity in Germany as the U21 German National Team Coach.

“Pedro has been the force behind all of the new Judo Ontario programming and the creation of our High Performance Program that lead to a Regional Trainign Centre (RTC) at Toronto Pan American Sports Centre (TPASC). Due to this success of this program Pedro has developed strong partnerships, increased funding and has changed the culture of High Performance Judo in Ontario. We wish him much success in his new role.”

“It is with great disappoinment that we have learned the departure of Pedro Guedes. Pedro has contributed greatly to the development of young Judo players in Ontario and has been instrumental in developing the Judo Ontario Training centre at TPASC and developing a strong partnership with Canadian Sport Institute Ontario. Judo Canada will work with Judo Ontario to facilitate the transition and to find a competent replacement.”

“I want to thank the Judo Ontario board members, volunteers, partners, and club coaches for their continuous support and a special thanks to the athletes. Without your support it would not have been possible to make the inroads and successes we made in our High Performance program over the last 4 years. Judo Ontario’s RTC is now considered an example for all RTCs and one of the strongest High Performance programs in the country.

I would also like to thank the great support and partnership from the CSIO, the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culutre and Sport, and the strong partnership developmed with Judo Canada.

It was a pleasure to be part of this team and I appreciate this wonderful opportunity to work with you all. I’m looking forward to seeing a lot of long term success fro Ontario athletes nationally and internationally.

I would like to express my thanks for all the great opportunities and professional development I have hadworking for Judo Ontario and Judo Canada over the last four and a half years.”
