Long Track Competitions

The challenge for long track skaters in Ontario is that the opportunity to train and compete the long track discipline is limited by the availability of natural ice in Ontario.  There are 3 clubs across Ontario that maintain natural ice: Sault Ste Marie, Lakefield and Ottawa.

The Long Track Technical Bulletin is currently being updated and will be posted as soon as its available.

Skaters who achieve the time standards and meet the age requirements can qualify to compete in the four Canada Cup races that are held across Canada as well as the Canadian Age Class Long Track Championships.
