32nd Annual Harold Joyce Invitational Short Track Speed Skating Championship

November 4 – 5, 2017

Grant Harvey Centre, Fredericton, NB

The Fredericton Amateur Speed Skating Club welcomes all skaters to the 32nd Annual Harold Joyce Championships.

The Championships are open to all skaters and will feature ability class races, skating on the 85m, 100m and 111m tracks. This will be an SSNB and SSC sanctioned meet.

Racing will begin at 9am on Saturday!

Host Hotel: Hampton Inn, 470 Bishop Drive, Fredericton, NB.

Room rate until October 13th $135/night + tax for Two Queen standard room or One King standard room.

Includes hot breakfast offered daily, free WIFI and pool with slide.

Call 506.300.1818 to book.

In addition to individual medals for the top three boys and girls in each division, we will be awarding a Club Championship Banner for the club with the most overall points at this year’s Harold Joyce meet.

The winner will take the banner home with them and can add it to their trophy case or hang in their home rink! Maybe even all the club skaters can sign it and be immortalized in their Club’s history!

The winning club will also have their name added to the Club Championship Trophy!

Will your club be the one who earns bragging rights for this season?

The racing will take place on the Olympic sized ice surface at the Grant Harvey Centre located at 600 Knowledge Park Drive in Fredericton.  We hope to see you all there.

Speed Skate New Brunswick (SSNB) is pleased to release an updated version of the Provincial Team Policy (PTP) for the upcoming 2017-2018 skating season.

Please take the time to thoroughly review the documents. A few larger changes include:

  1. SSNB time standards to attend the Canada East Championships (to ensure meaningful competition for those who attend, and “a bar to strive for” for all SSNB athletes)
  2. New funding standards for the Canada East Championships
  3. New SSNB ranking format for skaters on the 100m track

It is important that the updates are reviewed and understood before the competition season begins. If you have any question or comments regarding the PTP please contact Scott Beamish.

Along with our PTP, the SSNB Code of Conduct and Discipline Policy has been reviewed, modified, and updated to help us continue in providing a safe, respectful, and fun environment for all SSNB members! These documents can be found in the appendix section of the PTP.

The PTP is posted under the Board & Committees tab in the Athletic Development section under Provincial Team Policy, or you may click HERE.

Have an excellent season everyone! See you at the rink!

SSNB has re-opened the call for women wishing to serve as Managers for our 2017 Canada Winter Games teams, as we did not receive any female applicants. Our teams (short track and long track) will each be led by one coach and one manager; with each of the two disciplines having one male and one female leader. This is to say that one team will have a female coach and male manager, and the other a male coach and female manager.

Managers do not require a coaching certification, but it is considered an asset. Please read the guidelines in the attached form and send in your application if you feel you’re qualified to serve as manager for one (or preferably either) of our CWG teams.

The extended deadline is now Wednesday, November 6th.

SSNB CWG Manager and Coach Application 2-1

Please return all applications to me via email at devinpatterson810(at)gmail.com.
