Final CWG Short Track Trials Lists Posted

The final lists (women and men) of participants in the Canada Winter Games Short Track Trials are now posted on the OSSA Canada Winter Games webpage.

The Trials wil be held December 7-9 2018 in Cambridge, ON. The competition will be run concurrently with Ontario Elite Circuit #3. Good luck to all participants!

 

PLEASE NOTE: because skaters for the CWG Short Track Trials have already confirmed their participation with the OSSA office, it is not necessary to fill out individual registration forms for each skater in the Trials. Trials skaters must submit a new signed waiver if they have not already completed one through their home club.

Club registrars must still fill out a Registration Spreadsheet for Trials (separate from OEC#3 Registration Spreadsheet) and send it to the provincial registrar by Tuesday November 27, 2018 at 11:59pm.
