Congratulations to Emma Stephens for being named to the Alberta Short Track Development team for the 2016-2017 season!
There are certain time standards in place for this team and the other levels within the provincial system. These are great goals to keep in mind as you prepare for your next season of long and short track training. The Development Team standard ensures that you receive a provincial skin suit and team jacket, while the other levels come with some amount of funding.
2015-16 AB Provincial team Criteria (these are the times from last year and are updated if new records are set)
Provincial Short Track – Avg times under 115%. Note that your times are an average of your 500m, 1000m times along with one of your 1500m or 3000m times.
Long Track – only one time standard is required to earn a spot on a specific team
