Speed Skate New Brunswick has been working to develop an Operational Plan for a return to speed skating activities with COVID precautions in place. The document attached below outlines the guidelines when speed skating events are held by or hosted by Speed Skate New Brunswick. Each New Brunswick club should develop their own set of guidelines but are free to utilize and/or modify this document for their own circumstances.

Hello, we hope that you and your families have been enjoying the beautiful weather! We would like to inform everyone that the zoom workouts have been posted on our YouTube channel. Jamie Macdonald will still hold the live weekly zoom workouts on Monday at 7 pm and will now be posting the videos afterwards for those who have missed it or would like to do the workout again.

We have received a few inquiries about the Hampton Meet registration refund, and would like to share a message to update the current situation:
Since the start of the COVID-19 restrictions in NB, Paypal has locked us out of our account. Unfortunately we use this platform to process all transactions including refunds. Our Financial Chair has been trying to work with the Paypal organization to straighten things out, but given the current situation it has been a long and slow process.
We are sorry for the inconvenience this has caused and thank you for your patience as we work through this.
SSNB would like to recognize and congratulate the athletes who have achieved the performance standard to be on the SSNB Provincial Team for the 2020-2021 speed skating season!

For information on the Provincial Team and what some of the benefits are, please see the Provincial Team Bulletin!
NOTICE: SSNB recognizes that the cancelation of meets at the end of the season limited the opportunity for athletes to achieve the Provincial Team standard. If you believe that you had a reasonable chance to achieve the standard (the athletic development/coaching committee defined reasonable as within 2% of the standard) then please write a short request letter to the Provincial Coach (Jamie Macdonald: firstname.lastname@example.org) outlining why you deserve to be on the Provincial Team. If accepted this will grant you onto the Provincial Team until the first maritime competition, at which point you will have to achieve the posted standard.
Hello everyone, we hope that everyone is adjusting to physical distancing well, and that you have been able to stay active during this time. The current situation is unprecedented and staying active may be difficult at this time, so Provincial Coach Jamie Macdonald will be releasing training videos for you to do in your home to help you stay moving. Jamie will virtually be doing the full program with you so all you’ll need is your workout clothes and a small space in your home! The program difficulty in the videos are designed for those in the Train to Train stage; approximately ages 11-15, and for further details on this training stage you can visit the SSNB website and under the “Athletes” tab there is a description for each training stage.
The videos have been tailored to accommodate a small space, so that the programs are accessible to everyone. So far there is a warm-up video, a cool-down video, and one program. There will be a video released once a week on Monday for you to complete that week.
Additionally, weekly training programs for May and June will be released on May 1st, and there will be a video of one of the skating specific programs that Jamie Macdonald will guide you through.
These are the first videos that SSNB has made, so your feedback is welcomed. There will be an anonymous survey in the google drive folder for you to add feedback and suggestions to. This will help to improve and tailor the videos to your needs.
If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to Jamie Macdonald at email@example.com
