Congratulations to Lorelei St.Rose, Duane Swan, Adam Ingle and Ariana VanDerStarre, who have been selected to represent TEAM BC at the 2019 Canada Winter Games in Red Deer. These four coaches will be instrumental in preparing skaters for the 2019 Games through BCSSA’s Racing to Red Deer program. The coaches will be meeting over the summer to prepare and publish the Selection Bulletin for the BC skaters who will be named to TEAM BC.
The BCSSA Athlete Development Committee is proud to announce the skaters who are eligible for the 2017-2018 Provincial Performance Program! Skaters must confirm their position in the Program, via the online Athlete Agreement Form, by June 30th, 2017.

BCSSA is looking for qualified and passionate individuals to lead TEAM BC Speed Skating to the 2019 Canada Winter Games in Red Deer. Coaches and managers will be responsible for running the Racing to Red Deer Canada Winter Games Preparation Program, as well as coaching skaters at the Games.
Please see the attached posting for more details, including the application deadline.
Letters will be sent, via email, over the next few weeks to skaters who are eligible for Athlete External Sport Credentials (Athlete 10, 11 and 12) towards high school graduation.Â Any skaters who are urgently awaiting their letter for graduation should email email@example.com. Please note that you are only eligible for a credit once (e.g. if you have already received Athlete 11, through any sport, you aren’t eligible to receive it again). Skaters are responsible for submitting their letter directly to their School Counsellor.
Students are also able to earn Coach 11 and Officials 11 and 12 credits through speed skating. Any students who believe they have completed the necessary requirements for these three credits should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss next steps.
Check out the new page on the website. So far the page has been populated with technique demonstrations from Eric Bedard and Maggie Qi of Calgary Olympic Oval. Enjoy!
