Note to all parents of skaters potentially headed to CWG in Prince George- we just received an email from Jen Scott (TEAM BC Speed Skating Mission Staff) about hotel rooms:

“We’ve just received word that that organizing committee has released their hotel blocks so a large inventory of rooms have opened up. Please pass this information along to the parents of potential athletes. I encourage them to book their rooms as soon as possible.”

Book early so you don’t miss out!

At the SSC AGM in Ottawa, Jim Allison, former BCSSA board member and president, has been voted by the delegates of SSC as our new president. Jim succeeds Marie Claire who has served over the past 6 years. Please welcome us in congratulating Jim as he begins this new journey and challenge.
