Last one before Christmas!!!
This meet is open to all our skaters, young and old, who want to spend a day racing and cheering on friends!
Registration deadline is Dec 2, so bring your form and money to Lynn at the rink by practice on Dec. 2nd.
The announcement for the meet is here – Announcement
The waivers are here – Waiver < 18
Bring a checque and the waiver to the rink.
You will also need to register online directly. The link in in the Announcement, or you can go directly there via this link. Click “no” for “Are you a returning player”.
Please note: the meets are always looking for volunteers. Training can take place on the job, you will get to see your child race, and you get free food all day! It’s a great training ground for our own meet, which is the next one on the calendar. Please see one of the executive if you can volunteer.
Long track is a great way to complement short track speed skating. It is raced on a 400m track, and helps to build endurance and strength. Racing can be either Mass Start (multiple skaters) or Olympic Style (2 skaters on the track).
The Ottawa meet format has changed to a one day format. Regional skaters are in the morning and Provincial skaters are in the afternoon.
Registration must be done by each skater,
Note: you will need your SSC number to register. If you do not have it, please see Lynn or Jennifer to get it.
Payment is still by club, so bring your cheque to the rink and see your coach or Lynn Allaby.
