Kamloops Long BladesWeekly Update

Well, we had one fantastic weekend of skating with friends from all over the province! A huge thank you to all of the skaters, coaches and parents for helping to make Speedy Weekend a great one.

Coach Sandi, Sylvie and Sophia are travelling to Oberstdorf, Germany this week to attend the Oberstdorf shorttrack summer camp. This summer camp includes daily ice sessions, a mountain run, an inline triathlon and a short track competition. We wish them luck and look forward to photos and updates!

Our skaters have been busy with skating camps this summer! Isaiah, Cameron and Rebecca have just returned from a week long Nagano Speed Skating Camp in Moncton, New Brunswick. The week before that they attended the Calgary Oval Summer Camp along with Sophia and Jacob!
