Mini Meet #1 Volunteers Needed!

Our first Mini Meet takes place on Monday, November 4 from 5-8 for SS1, SS2, & SS3 groups.  L2S will have their own races scheduled during a practise.

Parents – we need your help.  Mini meets are great racing practice for the skaters, and they are also a great time for parents to learn the different volunteer positions involved in a speed skating meet.  This will serve as practice for our upcoming invitational meet, Fire on Ice, happening on Saturday, December 7, 2019.

Please click the sign up button below to volunteer for the meet.

Sign Up!

IMPORTANT! Also, a reminder to fill in the Meet Sign Up page for your skater so that our coaches and meet organizers know who to expect at the meet.  This ensures the races are even and fair, so all the kids can have fun!

Border Blades Calendar Updates

Our calendar for the 2019-20 season is updated with all the practise, mini meet, and special event times.  There is a link on the calendar page if you wish to add the Border Blades gmail calendar to your mobile device. Any changes made to practise will show up in plenty of time on the calendar.

We also request that you fill out the competition entries sheet.  Let us know which mini meets and out of town meets your skater will be attending.  This helps our coaches and mini meet managers.  You can edit at any time.
