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.
The Border Blades have scheduled their AGM for April 30, 2019

We are requesting that each family sends at least one representative who is over the age of 18. If you are able to send more that would be great.

Pre-registration for the 2019-20 season will be happening at the AGM as well, guarantee your spot for next fall!
The weather did not cooperate for skating, but the kids still had a great time on the Oval! Thanks so much to all our parents and volunteers who helped put the windup together, and everyone who showed up for the fun. We hope to see you all back next year.
Here are a few hi-lights of our scavenger hunt, as well as our two graduating skaters.
Our final practice of the year, Thursday, March 14, will end on a high note. Join us from 5:00-7:30 for an evening of games, fun races, and our annual slip and slide! Don’t forget to pack a towel and a change of clothes.
Fire on Ice, our annual home meet, is taking place on Saturday, December 1. Numerous volunteers are required to make the event run smoothly. Many of the positions are the same as the Mini Meets, and there are also jobs that are specific to the meet.
We also run a Hospitality Room in the OTS room, which serves our coaches, officials, and volunteers. We are looking for people willing to bring in food, as well as work in the hospitality room during the meet.
To sign up for these volunteer positions, please follow our Sign Up Genius link.
Don’t forget to fill in the Competition Entry Sheet with a Yes or No for Fire on Ice by going here:Meet Sign Up
Our first Mini Meet takes place on Thursday, November 22 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 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 1, 2018.
Please click the sign up button below to volunteer for the meet.
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!
