Niagara Speed Skating Club is looking for a pair of rental skates size 13 or 14 they can borrow.  If you can help please contact OSSA.

Allergy Awareness

We have received comments from parents who are concerned about items in the change rooms at meets.  It's been noticed that peanuts and other allergens are being introduced without realizing it could impact other skaters. Please consider how your choices affect others before you attend events.
