There will be a Canada Winter Games training camp in St. Andrews June 10th

Where: Centennial Park (Joes Point Road, St. Andrews)

When: June 10th 10:00am-5:00pm

The camp in St. Andrews will have a big focus on aerobic fitness training and imitation technique. If you are unable to run please bring a bike with you and proper safety equipment. Be prepared for a tough day of training, we’ll be building you’re energy system!

Because this camp will be focused around aerobic training we will be outdoors for the entirety of the day. Make sure to bring weather appropriate clothes with you, we will not be indoors unless sever weather conditions are projected in which case the camp location will be changed.

This will be a physically demanding camp, make sure to bring proper nutrition with you: Water, snacks (granola bars, fruit, hummus and crackers, etc.), a healthy lunch, sports drinks, and a post training meal. As well it would be a good idea to prepare the day before with hydration, carbohydrate heavy meals, stretching, etc.

The cost for the camp is $20, please sign up below by June 3rd.

***Online payment is preferred.  No cash will be accepted at the event.  If you must use a cheque please make it out to NBASSA Inc for the correct amount.  If no payment is received your attendance at the camp will not be counted.***

The New Brunswick Amateur Speed Skating Association (SSNB) will hold its AGM at 2pm on Sunday June 3rd at the Grant Harvey Community Room.

We will have a WebEx session available for remote participants, however given the Chair position and Director of Finance roles are both up for election, I would suggest that attending in person is appropriate for as many as possible.

The final agenda will be published May 26 along with the reports.
Current Agenda:
  • Call to Order
  • Approve Minutes of the Previous AGM
  • Business Arising for Previous Minutes
  • Reports and Communications
  • Election of Officers
  • New Business

Delegate votes are based on competitive skaters (does not include LTS)

1-20 skaters = 3 votes
21-40 skaters = 4 votes
41-60 skaters = 5 votes
61-80 skaters = 6 votes
81-100 skaters = 7 votes

(No single delegate can hold more than 2 votes)

As an example, if a Club has 50 competitive skaters they would need 3 delegates to count all 5 votes (2 votes x for two delegates and 1 vote for one delegate)
