Jocelyn Huot, coach


Jocelyn Huot was assistant coach for the Canadian Para-Alpine ski team that won eight medals in Sochi, including two gold – representing half of Team Canada’s total medal haul for these Games.

Huot began working with the Canadian para-alpine ski team in 2010 following the Vancouver Paralympic Winter Games and was on the coaching staff for the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games.

An all-round athlete, Huot began his lifelong relationship with sport as a young karate athlete before competing in volleyball, road biking and ski racing throughout his teenage years. He raced in alpine skiing at the college and university level in Quebec, and started coaching at Andre-Grasset College and for the Université de Montréal Ski Team after a stint as a ski instructor. He coached the Canadian team at the 2002 Tarvisio University Games.

Huot was recruited to join the coaching staff of the Canadian para-alpine team in 2010 and since then has helped shape the team’s athletes into speed machines. He thrives on finding creative solutions to some of the challenges that accompany the various types of athlete disabilities and enjoys when an athlete executes a planned strategy to perform at the right moment.

Outside of ski racing, Huot mountain bikes, runs and enjoys photography.
