Speed Skating on Family Day!

Looking for something to do on Family Day? How about heading to Burlington for the Western Regional meet? Or maybe a trip to Lakefield for a family skate on their Oval?   Both events are on for February 18th so be sure to check them out.

CACLT Coming Soon!
Skaters from across the province will be competing at the Provincial Long Track Championships in Ottawa this weekend. This is the selection event for the Canadian Age Class Championships being held February 9-10 in Winnipeg.

The list of Team Ontario skaters and alternates will be posted on Monday. 

There is limited time to complete documentation, so families are asked to review the Team Ontario Information Package ahead of time. 

Good Luck to all!

K-W Sertoma Celebrating 50 Years!

50yrsThe K-W Sertoma Speed skating club is proud to announce the celebration of their 50th year as a club. K-W is hosting the Provincial "A" short track championship on Feb 23 and 24th and will be celebrating this impressive milestone as part of that event. 

The club has worked hard to make this a great celebration of the 50th. The opening ceremony will feature the Mayors of both cities and representatives from OSSA. The club also hopes to have their lifetime members and former presidents in attendance. Clubs are asked to bring their banners for athletes to carry in a parade led by a Towne Crier. There will be archive items and banners from over the last 50 years on display. The club hopes that all in attendance will have a great experience! 

K-W would also like to thank all Ontario clubs for their support over the years and for their contributions to making this the best sport in Ontario for all ages.
