Good Tuesday morning everyone!

The weather is not looking promising for practice tonight but we will keep you posted.  So far it is still ago.  Weather permitting, practices will be at their usual times and locations this week
A reminder that the oval meltdown is this coming weekend.
We are planning on having another parent information session in the near future.  Please keep your eyes open for updates on our email and/or social media platforms.

Officiating clinic!Speed Skate Nova Scotia ( SSNS) is pleased to announce that a Level 1 Officials Clinic will be offered on Friday 28 February 6:30-9:30pm, and Saturday 29 February 29 4:00-5:30pm.   This is a great way to learn more about the sport our young skaters enjoy so much.
 The clinic will be held at the RBC Centre at Dartmouth Crossing and will be instructed by Brent Thompson, Referee Level 3B.  There will be opportunities to gain practical experience in conjunction with the Dartmouth Sprints Meet on Saturday 29 February 8:00am-3:30pm. The Level 1 Officials Clinic is designed to teach the role of each official in a speed skating competition, both long track and short track. The clinic will use video, practical demonstrations, informal discussion, and in-competition practical experience. The clinic is also useful for parents of new speed skaters and developing coaches to learn about the rules of the sport of speed skating and ask questions to a referee.   There is no charge to the participants of the course, but please RSVP with your name and email contact information to brent.speedskating@gmail.com by Wednesday, Feb 26th, 2020 so we can have an idea of numbers for refreshments and photocopying.

See you at the rink!
