Club short track skin suit orders and cut proof suit orders must be placed with Kate Anderson by tomorrow, Sept. 14th, in order to meet season start club discount with our vendor.  Email at <kandersongiroux@gmail.com>.

Sizing will take place at a later date, but quantities must be confirmed.

NOTE: The club skin suits will no longer have kevlar built in, cut protection must be worn as a separate undersuit.

Cut proof suits: the cut proof suits are Level 5 (best available) and a deep discount, so if you are thinking you need one for next year, consider an order this year.  Cost $279 vs $479.  Most skaters wear one size for approx 2-3 years.   Recommended for all ages.

COME JOIN IN THE FUN!! 2018-2019 STARTING SOON!

While the webpage may need some attention, that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy getting ready for this season!

We offer learn to skate, learn to speed skate and recreational and competitive programs for the whole family! Registration is coming up Aug. 30 5-8 pm at the Memorial Center, and Sept 4th 6-7 pm. Our competitive group is on the ice Sept 4th as well, so you can see some action.

In general, our growing skaters rent the specialized skates from the club for the season, so skate sizing and distribution is happening on registration nights as well.

Check out our facebook page for more info!

For younger skaters, you race in your short track skates.

For older skaters,  you could consider a pair of long track skates. ZT sports rents out Clap Blades (which we can attach to your short track boots) or the Clap blade plus long track boot.  Contact ZT for availability and support. Skaters age 11 and up should be able to transition to the clap well.

Stay Warm! Skate covers are the only other recommended piece of equipment, as the skates are cold. These can be made from neoprene socks, and cutting a slit along the bottom for the blade to stick out. These can be picked up at MEC for about  $15.   ZT sports also sells speed skating specific skate covers.

The entire community was invited to come out and skate with us on Dec. 10, from 6:30 – 9:00.  We thoroughly enjoyed sharing the ice with everyone, as well as providing speed skates for those adventurous enough to try! Keep on Skating Canada!

 

Hot chocolate, snacks, and Canada 150 gifts rounded out the day!
