Hello Athletes,

Please fill out the short form in this link to vote for one of your fellow athletes as the BCSSA Skater Representative. This athlete will sit in on meetings with the Athlete Development Committee (ADC) and hopefully provide a voice and some insight into what you most need from us, the ADC!

The 2016-2017 Athlete Development Committee Bulletin #3.0, which describes the process for skater qualification to the 2017-2018 Provincial Performance Program (PPP), has been released. Please carefully review the Bulletin, as the process for qualification has undergone significant changes as compared to previous seasons.

The ADC would like to thank all those who contributed to the development of the new process. Any questions/comments should be directed to ADC at bcssa.athletedev@nullgmail.com.
