BC Cup ST #2 will be hosted at the Richmond Olympic Oval this weekend. We have nearly 130 L2T, T2T and Junior/Senior skaters participating in racing on Saturday and Academy Sunday! Please note that due to the large number of participants, the schedule for Saturday has been revised:
- Warm-ups begin at 7:00
- Racing projected to begin at 8:25
- Racing projected to end by 18:00.
The schedule for Academy Sunday has not changed. All skaters and non-skater participants are asked to be at the arena by 7:45 (sessions begin at 8:00 sharp). All L2T skaters will be in “Academy L2T”. F11-F13 and M12-M13 skaters will be in “Academy 1”. All other (older) skaters will be in “Academy 2”.
Any questions should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regrettably, we must announce that BC Cup Long Track Prince George scheduled for January 11-12, 2020 has been cancelled. The Prince George Blizzards interclub will still be occurring on Saturday January 11th, 2020 and we encourage everyone to consider attending and experience outdoor racing in Prince George next month.
Registration is now open for Academy Coach, Academy Official and Academy Parent sessions on Academy Sunday @ BC Cup ST #2 in Richmond. Sessions will be led by the Academy Coaches (ST Provincial Coach Nicole Garrido, Keven Fitzpatrick, Ariana VanDerStarre and LT Provincial Coach Jennifer Gibson), starter Candace Clouthier, referees Thomas McLennan and Kristina Krieck, and Technical Director Chris Acton.
