The BC Speed Skating Academy (“Academy”) is a BCSSA initiative to supplement the development of in-province skaters. Academy sessions are delivered in two different formats: Academy camps (typically 2-3 days long), and “Academy Sundays” @ BC Cups.
L2T-aged, T2T-aged and Junior-aged competitive skaters are all welcome to participate in Academies. Academy sessions will have multiple groups based on age and ability.
