The Border Blades had one skater compete in Lethbridge at the end of October. Congrats to Samantha L!
Our AWG age qualifying skaters received an exciting email from coach Bill today!
Welcome to another Alberta Winter Games year! The 2020 Games will be held in Airdrie AB from February 14-17.
Qualification for Zone 7
We will be using Short Track times due to our limited access to Long Track ice prior to the selection deadline. ANY sanctioned times will be accepted for this, including Fire On Ice times.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to get in touch with me.
Bring a friend to practise on Thursday, October 24! If you are a SS3 and feel your friend would be more comfortable skating in a different group due to ability, please feel free to join that group for the evening!
To participate, please make sure your friend brings:
- skates – there are hockey skates available to borrow by the practice ice surface.
- cut proof gloves
- neck guard
- knee and shin pads recommended
We encourage everybody to invite a friend to experience the fun and exciting sport of speed skating!
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.
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!
