There will be a Canada Winter Games training camp in Hampton July 8th

Where: Hampton High School soccer field (34 Elizabeth Ave.)

When: July 8th 10:00am-5:00pm

The camp in Hampton will focus on strength building and imitation technique. If you have a kord please bring it with you, as well as cleats so that you have grip on the grass for moving cables. Lunch will be from 12:00-12:45, pack a healthy (protein heavy) lunch with you and lots of water and snacks.

The camp will take place at the soccer field outside, therefore please bring weather appropriate clothing. There will be access to a washroom, but no water fountain so please pack plenty of water!

With the focus of this camp around imitations and muscle building, you want to ensure that you eat plenty of protein before, during, and after the camp. It is suggested that you bring a protein rich snack to have immediately following the days training. Good ideas of what to bring could be: hummus and crackers, chocolate milk, Greek yogurt, cheese, beef jerky, etc.

The cost for the camp is $20, please sign up below by July 1st.

***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.***

Where: Sugarloaf Provincial Park (596 Val-d’Amour Rd)

The camp in Campbellton will focus on muscle building and aerobic fitness (through activities such as body weight squats, hiking, climbing Sugarloaf Mountain, and running intervals). Bring hiking boots if you have them, and please bring a bike if you are unable to run. Because we are focusing on muscle growth, you may want to bring ice packs and/or a foam roller to help reduce muscle inflammation after the days training. Be ready for sore muscles!

We will be at Sugarloaf National Park for the entirety of the camp so please dress for the outdoor weather and have plenty of water with you (4L bottles!).  The coaches that are attending will be camping at Sugarloaf Saturday night, if you’d like to join in the fun book a campsite on the Sugarloaf website! We’ll also be having a team bonfire at the Sugarloaf campsites starting at 9pm, come for the s’mores, stay for the fire!

If we are forced indoors due to weather we will move to the Civic Centre. Saturday there will be no lunch break, please come having already eaten, and bring plenty of healthy snack to have throughout the day.

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.

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)
