Information For Clubs

Participants in sanctioned speed skating events must be registered with SSC/SSNS, and their registration completed in the Speed Skating Canada database prior to participation in any sanctioned event. 

All skaters must be registered in one of the skater membership categories; their skater registration covers any other activities they are involved in, such as coaching or officiating. Coaches, officials and volunteers who are not also skaters should be registered in the “Associate” category. 

Please ensure that all volunteers actively involved in speed skating activities and events are registered with Speed Skating Canada to ensure that they are properly covered by both liability and accident insurance.
