The camp is planned to be held outdoors the morning of May 12th from 10am-12, then we will be moving indoors for the remainder of the day. Please bring appropriate clothing for the weather conditions outside, and remember to pack a healthy lunch with you and plenty of snacks!

We will be going through a variety of aerobic, and imitation programs, and classroom sessions.

For May 13th we will get to see what your run training has been like by competing in the Scotiabank 5km or 10km road race! It is still not too late to start training for this event, and we encourage all family members to join in and compete, they have race distances for all! Make sure to set a race goal for yourself. You can sign up at the official website here. Your registration fee can be paid online, SSNB is not charging for this event, but you must run the race for it to count as a CWG camp attendance mark. It is only the road race planned for May 13th, after your race you’re free to go home and celebrate Mothers Day!

The cost for the camp is $20 for May 12th. Please sign up below by May 5th.

Speed Skate New Brunswick will be holding the first training camp in Quispamsis on April 29th for all age eligible speed skating athletes of the 2019 Canada Winter Games in Red Deer.

Where: Ecole des Pionniers (250 Quispamsis road, Quispamsis, NB)

This will be a mandatory camp. We will go through a series of aerobic, agility, speed, strength, and flexibility tests to determine a baseline and be able to monitor your progression as an athlete as we approach the CWG.

We will begin the day with some activities outdoors, then lunch from 11:15-12:00, and then we will move inside to have our testing in the gymnasium. Please bring weather appropriate clothes for outside and non-marking indoor shoes for when we move indoors. Have plenty of snacks with you to have throughout the day and a healthy lunch.

The SSNB Canada East Short Track Championships (CEST) camp will take place March 10th-11th in Saint Andrews.

March 10th 11:30am-5:30pm

March 11th 9:00am-3:30pm

W.C. O’Neill Arena Complex (24 Reed St, Saint Andrews)

Ice sessions will be broken down to girls only and boys only to accommodate the large number of potential participants and for safety concerns on a smaller rink surface. Along with 2.5 hours of ice each athlete will have, there will be dryland training, blade checks, NB Suit fitting, and classroom seminars. The focus of this camp is to prepare our athlete for the upcoming relays at CEST and to develop a positive Team NB atmosphere.

Please eat lunch before arriving March 10th as no lunch break will be given. Several snack breaks will occur throughout the day so pack plenty of healthy snacks and fluids to eat/drink. Dress for the weather outdoors as we will plan to hold some dryland sessions outside.

All CEST aged athletes are welcome to attend regardless of speed. (skating age girls: 11-14, boys: 12-15)

Participation to the camp is not mandatory for CEST skaters but is highly recommended for preparation of the relay events.

The cost for the camp is $50. Please sign up below by Friday March 2nd.

***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 any coaches or older skaters would like to help coach for the camp please contact Scott Beamish. It’s always great having an extra few hands around, and a refresher on relays is great for everyone!
