Welcome to Week #4! Good luck to Cameron and Rebecca as they head to Fort St John next weekend for the second long track Academy camp!

Equipment:

For the safety of all skaters on the ice, please remember to check your skater’s skates and sharpen them regularly. The club has several sharpening jigs that can be used during/after practice. If you are new to speed skating, please let us know and we can show you how to properly sharpen and maintain your skates.

Please remember to wear your required protective equipment to all practices on ice! For a reminder of what is required, please check out the following link: http://www.kamloopslongblades.ca/equipment/

Also, a reminder that protective equipment that belongs to the club should only be used on a temporary basis. Check out https://www.ilovespeedskating.com/ for any missing items!
