We have had an overwhelming interest in OSSA’s Long Track Camps. IF we can secure additional coaching and facility resources, and there are enough skaters, we may be able to include an additional group of skaters, particularly skaters who have not had the opportunity to obtain times but have prior long track racing experience. Please note this is not a learn to long track speed skate camp. Please email sportmanager@ontariospeedskating.ca by Friday November 2, 2018 if you are interested in attending the Milwaukee LT Camp.
