Provincial Series #1 Cambridge

Skaters and coaches should be aware that seeding for Provincial Series #1 (Cambridge, November 1-2, 2014) is based on the year-end ranking list from 2013-2014. See pages 12 - 14 of the OSSA Technical Bulletin.

14 year old skaters will be seeded into the Open group for the purpose of creating Divisions within the meet, on the basis of their 500m+1500m (111.12m track) times from 2013-2014.

Results from Provincial Series #1 will determine which skaters are invited to race at the Short Track Trials (Clarington, November 21-23, 2014) for Canada Winter Games. Two skaters, who are based out of the province, are pre-qualified for the the selection meet based on criteria posted in the OSSA CWG bulletin. They are: Ayanna Badali (Toronto) and Innzbruk Richards (Clarington).

Therefore, 30 female athletes and 32 male athletes who race at PS #1 will be invited to the Short Track Trials in Clarington.
