Technical Bulletin - Update
On July 27th we posted the technical bulletin for the 2012-13 season. Since that date we have had a few questions and some clarifications. We are tweaking the document and will be re-posting version 1.1 next week along with some support documents and an updated competitions calendar.

Coming soon - A new season!

OSSA at the SSC Annual General Meeting

SSC LogoIn early July OSSA board members and staff attended the Speed Skating Canada Annual General Meeting.  There were many different workshops and events to participate in and those who attended have collaborated to create a report for our members.  In the report you will find information on new rules, safety updates, event planning, club excellence and LTPAD.
Please take a few minutes to read the report and you can also check out some photos from the gala banquet as well.
