The BC Speed Skating Academy (“Academy”) is a BCSSA initiative to supplement the development of in-province, Stage 1 skaters on the Elite Athlete Pathway.Â Stage 1 skaters are typically T2T-aged skaters, training 300-400 hours per year (3-5 ice sessions per week during the skating season).
See below for programming dates. Updates will be made to the calendar and will also be posted to the BCSSA Academy Facebook page (see Facebook feed in the right column of this webpage).
Registration for the Academy LT series is now open below. Please ensure you fill out the online formÂ and pay via the PayPal link. If you are still interested in registering for Academy Summer, please email email@example.com.
The Academy is targeted to Stage 1 skaters. Skaters who have graduated from the Academy program have two options for Stage 2 training in Western Canada. Both programs are an extension of BCSSA programs, but are not directly run nor funded by BCSSA:
