First Ranking List of the Year is now Available!

View the list here.

Notes on the ranking list:

  • The ranking list appears in club groupings so that coaches & presidents can check easily.
  • Everyone starts with their best PB from last season with a 0 alongside.
  • If NT is present, it means that the skater did not improve their time in that distance and coaches/presidents did not  inform us of their PB in that distance at the end of last season when asked.
  • Skaters with NT or blanks, thus having no total score, will have to skate the first ability meet of the season inorder to become active on the ranking list.
  • If you find any discrepancies please contact your coach or club president who can inform OSSA by Friday September 10th.
  •  After September 10th we will post an updated list in ranking order

Ottawa Summer Camp

David Stewart and I visited the Summer Camp in Ottawa for a couple of days and we were very impressed by the fantastic camp being provided for our skaters. 

Skaters of all ages were being kept busy and obviously having a great time – swimming, jumping over benches, exercise machines, yoga, dragon boats – and even skating!!!  We talked to skaters who were tired but smiling, coaches who loved working with such inspired athletes, the folks from Nunavut who were enjoying the warm weather and parents who were really enjoying having the billeted athletes stay with them – everyone was having a really good time. 

Hats off to the Concordes and all the coaches and volunteers who made the camp possible.
