Due to the provinces level 3 restrictions and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Codiac Cyclones have made the difficult decision to cancel their meet, set to take place February 5th-6th.

Codiac Cyclone President, Denis Boudreau, said they are in communication with the City of Dieppe to see if there is any way possible to book ice time later in March or early April so they could potentially host a meet at that time.  It’s a long shot at this point but they will keep us posted on any developments.

Thank you everyone for your understanding during these difficult times.

Stay Safe.

Due to the restrictions currently in New Brunswick as a result of the spike in Coronavirus cases, the One Day Meet in St. Croix as been rescheduled for February 19th.

Keep an eye on our SSNB Calendar as it is kept up to date with changes.

As the season gets underway with the first few competitions skated since February of 2020, we would like to share with everyone some information regarding competitions.

Throughout the season, skaters aged 11+ (female) or 12+ (male), can track their progress and ranking by visiting our NB Rankings and Entry Standards page. All skaters can also see their past results by visiting the 2021-2022 Competitions Results page and selecting the desired competition they would like to see.

Speed Skate New Brunswick regularly updates their Provincial Team Policy which outlines how skaters in New Brunswick are ranked, how they can get funded for select competitions, qualify to attend higher level competitions (such as those in Quebec or at a National level), and includes our Code of Conduct, Discipline Policy, Incident Report Form, and Appeals Policy.

Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, the Athletic Development/Coaching Committee has made a number of amendments to the Provincial Team Policy for the 2021-2022 speed skating season. Amendments include: how skaters can move from the 100m track to the 111m track, and how skaters are ranked and funded for the Canadian Youth Short Track Championships – East.

If you have any questions about the Provincial Team Policy, please feel free to contact our Provincial Coach, Jamie Beamish at SSNB.TDPC@gmail.com

Good luck to everyone throughout the rest of their season!!

*Wondering what your skaters’ Speed Skate Canada age is?  It is your skater’s age as of June 30, 2021.  Therefore, if you have a skater who turns / turned 13 after June 30, 2021, they would skate on Sunday.
