We believe that skating is an iconic Canadian experience that should be accessible to all Nova Scotia residents regardless of their personal circumstances.
We will strive for excellence of athletic activity, coaching, officiating and administration in order to provide our members with the opportunity to fulfil their personal potential in the sport.
We will act with respect in all of our dealings, and will seek to instil in our membership respect for themselves, for others, for rules and regulations, for equipment and facilities, and for the privileges and opportunities they are offered.
We will provide fair and equitable training and competitive experiences, and will act with integrity in all of our dealings.
Training and competition practices must protect skaters from injury, and be designed to ensure their long term health and well-being.
Participants in speed skating should experience the joy of sport.
As we are supported by our communities, so will we also give back in ways that strengthen and support the well-being of those communities.
Speed skating will become an accessible winter sport for all Nova Scotians, and a full and rewarding option for Nova Scotians with aspirations to an athletic career.
