SLNDA Welcomes Eric Schryer as Biathlon Lead Coach

Hailing from Sudbury, Ontario, Eric began his journey in skiing and biathlon by striding and gliding around his property with his parents. After discovering biathlon he patiently waited until he was old enough and then began learning to shoot in his local air rifle biathlon program. This quickly evolved to teaching himself how to shoot .22 rifles with a small group of athletes. After racing domestically, Eric was quickly scooped up by the coaching world. Eric began coaching with the Chelsea Nordiq ski & biathlon club. Along with leading this talented group of biathletes, Eric coached at the 2019 Canada Winter Games, and a multitude of Jr. IBU cups, IBU cups, and World Youth / Junior Championships with Team Canada. Eric is a member of Biathlon Canada’s Domestic Committee and is continuing his education in the field of psychology.

Eric has spent the past two seasons living in Canmore, Alberta and coaching with the Biathlon Alberta Training Centre. Most recently, Eric served as the Head Coach for Team Canada at the 2022 World Youth / Junior Biathlon Championships.
Above all else, Eric values the relationships which are formed in this world of sport. Respect and passion are at the forefront of any interaction with Eric.
Eric is very excited to be joining the Nordic Dev Academy!
“This program aims to provide high quality development opportunities to athletes who can choose to simultaneously work on post secondary education while continuing their athletic career. While this is not a new concept in Canada, it is so important to expand our available resources as a country. I am thrilled to be a part of growing this amazing program!”
Please join us in welcoming Eric to the Sovereign Lake Coaching Family.
