It is with a heavy heart that the New Brunswick Speed Skating community mourns the loss of an exemplary member. Rachael Quinn embodied the spirit of our sport through her dedication to athletes, volunteerism, and contributions to speed skating in New Brunswick.

Rachael was instrumental in the development of our Canada Games athletes, volunteering at all training camps between 2001 & 2002, later becoming the Short Track team manager at the 2003 Canada Games in Campbelltown.

This experience sparked a tradition for Rachael, working alongside athletes throughout the 2005 & 2006 Canada Winter Games training camps.

In 2010, Rachael was named the Short Track Coach for the 2011 Canada Games in Halifax, working alongside ST manager and friend, Peter Steele, on programing and athletic development for the 2009 & 2010 training season.

Rachael’s contributions to New Brunswick’s athletes and the spirit of Short Track Speed Skating did not go unnoticed, on July 19, 2011, Rachael received the Speed Skate Canada Excellence Award which recognizes the meaningful contributions to the sport of speed skating in the role of coach, alongside fellow coaches; Phil Byrne of PEI, and Bill Gendron of Manitoba.

Rachael will forever be a treasured member of our community and will be deeply missed.

When: August 3rd – 6th

This camp is designed to fit the developmental appropriateness of each athlete that attends. To do this, groups within the camp will be split to focus on what is most important for each athlete’s developmental age.

Older athletes will focus more on refining movements and the training required to become an elite athlete.

Depending on registration numbers, each group will be capped at 22 Skaters, camp groups will be:

  • Group 1 – 2 sessions on ice each day. Camp runs 8am-5:00pm, $350
  • Group 2 – 2 shorter sessions on ice each day. Camp runs 8am – 5:00pm, $300
  • Group 3 – 1 ice session each day. Camp runs 9am – 1:00pm, $250

Registration is open until July 7th. You are asked to make a $200 instalment towards the camp cost once registering and after the camp groups are posted (July 12th) you will be asked to complete the remaining camp fee by July 15th.

Groups will be assigned after registration closes and will be designed to combine those closest in developmental age.

We hope to see many of you in Dieppe this summer! If you have any additional questions please contact Denis Boudreau at denisbfcpacga@gmail.com or Scott Beamish at scott_beamish5@hotmail.com.

Patinage de Vitesse Nouveau-Brunswick est heureux de pouvoir offrir à nouveau un camp d’entrainement estival. Le camps est ouvert pour les athlètes âgés de 8 ans et plus (âge au 1er juillet 2021)

Quand: du 3 au 6 août 2021

Ce camps est conçu pour s’adapter au niveau de développement approprié de chaque athlète qui y prendra part. Pour ce faire, des sous-groupes seront formés afin de mieux se concentrer sur ce qui est le plus important pour chaque athlète. Les athlètes les plus jeunes passeront moins de temps sur la glace mais plus de temps à développer les mouvements de bases et avoir du plaisir. Les plus vieux raffineront plutôt leurs mouvements ainsi que se concentreront sur un entrainement nécessaire pour devenir un athlète élite.

En fonction du nombres de participants, chaque groupe sera d’un maximum de 22 patineurs. Les groupes seront comme suit :

· Groupe 1 – 2 sessions sur glace chaque jour. Les heures du camp sont de 8h00 à 17h00, 350$

· Groupe 2 – 2 sessions sur glace plus courtes. Les heures du camp sont de 8h00 à 17h00, 300$

· Groupe 3 – 1 session sur glace par jour. Les heures du camps sont de 8h00 à 13:00, 250$

L’inscription est ouverte jusqu’au 7 juillet. On demande de faire un premier versement de 200$ à l’inscription et de payer la balance une fois les groupes formés (12 juillet), au plus tard le 15 juillet. Le lien pour l’inscription est ICI!!

Les groups seront formés une fois la période d’inscription terminée et seront conçus pour combiner les jeunes les plus proches au niveau de leur développement.

Nous espérons vous voir en grand nombre à Dieppe cet été! Si vous avez toutes autres questions, veuillez contacter Denis Boudreau à denisbfcpacga@gmail.com ou Scott Beamish à scott_beamish5@hotmail.com.
