Welcome back to a new season! The BCSSA Coaching Development Committee would like to inform coaches of a few important things as we start the 2014-2015 season:

1. Coaching Contests. They’re still on! The BCSSA Coaching Development Committee is currently holding two contests for speed skating coaches within BC. Please see the attached files for details about “The Locker Blitz” and the “Junior Coaching Challenge“. Good luck!

2. BC Coaches Week. This annual celebration is coming up September 20-27th! Check out the website for contests and *FREE* coaching courses. Most of these courses can be used as PD points, or used to round out your coaching skills… and they’re FREE!


The second ADC Bulletin (of three) outlines the qualification process for skaters to Team BCSSA, representing BCSSA at the age-class national championships (and other national competitions). Please note that the qualification process for each competition is contained on one page of the Bulletin, making easy one-page reference sheets. 

Any questions should be directed to ADC at bcssa.athletedev@nullgmail.com.
