The Northside Blades Speed Skating Club skates out of the Sydney Mines & District Community Centre in Sydney Mines, Cape Breton. The Northside Blades Speed Skating club was founded in 1993 by Leo and Mary Ann Doyle. Over the intervening years, many of our competitive skaters have had the honour of representing Nova Scotia at the Canada Winter Games and the Canadian Age Class Short Track Championships as members of the provincial team. One of our skaters has a Canadian Championship medal to his credit. Whether you wish to skate competitively or for recreation, speed skating has something to offer you. All are welcome!
