Annual General Meeting

Supporting Coach Development

Thank you to the Coaching Association of Canada and the Investors Group for their ongoing support of coach development. Through their generous support, eleven coaches were able to attend the Fundamentals Coach Part B coaching course held in Waterloo last weekend.


Thank You Investors Group!

The Investors Group has been supporting Ontario Speed Skating Association coach training for several years now and we are extremely greatful. It is with their support that we have been able to train many coaches and this year again they have provided funding. Recently we held an Introduction to Competition Part A course and eight participants are now on their way to becoming Introduction to Competition Certified!


ISU Short Track World Cup #2 - Volunteers Needed

Save the date! For the first time ever in Toronto speed skating fans will have a chance to experience live the thrill of a Short Track Speed Skating World Cup, as the very best short track skaters in the world will descend on the MasterCard Center.

This is an extraordinary opportunity to promote the sport we all love - and the host committee needs your help to make this historical event a big success.

In total, they will need to recruit about 200 volunteers to play a variety of roles, some similar to a regular meet, but others more typical of an international event such as the World Cup. Prior meet experience is not necessary for many of those roles. They need committed, enthusiastic volunteers that would make great ambassadors for our sport.

How can YOU help? The Organizing Committee would be grateful if you could spread the word within your club community that we are looking for volunteers and that the dates are November 6 to 8, 2015. More detailed information will follow soon about the specific needs and how to sign up as a volunteer. Until then visit for all the latest news on the event.
