The Speed Skate Nova Scotia Long Track Camp scheduled from December 28th to 30th (Wednesday through Friday) has been cancelled. The reason for the camp cancellation is lack of coaches that are available during a work day.
The ice time set aside for the camp will still be available for independent use at no charge for skaters registered with SSC. There are a few skaters that have expressed interest in attending the camp from other Atlantic provinces. SSNS would ask that if there are any coaches and/or older athletes that are planning to attend these ice sessions and are willing to give some technical instruction to some younger skaters please introduce yourself and help out a younger one.
SSNS President, Brent Thompson, will be attending the Wednesday PM session, Thursday AM session and Friday PM sessions and has reached out to those skaters that have expressed interest in the camp to help them with borrowing skates and on-ice technical tips on an informal basis. Any funds paid for camp activities will be refunded, there will be no sessions at the Canada Games Centre and no formal racing on the Friday PM session . The only session of ice that was specifically added to our regular dedicated time for the camp is the 4pm time on Thursday Dec. 29th. Please ask your club members to make sure that this particular ice slot is well utilized.
