Season Windup Party

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.

Fire on Ice XV Volunteers

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.

Mini Meet #1 Please Volunteer!

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.

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!
