NWT speed skaters at the 2015 Canada Winter Games

NWT Speed Skating appoints 2019 Canada Winter Games coaching staff

Shane Clark and Kerry Egan have been selected to lead NWT Speed Skating’s preparations for the 2019 Canada Winter Games.

Clark returns as coach having overseen the territory’s impressive run at the 2015 Canada Winter Games, in which the NWT’s female 3,000m relay team reached their final and finished fourth. Egan will act as the team manager.

In the weeks to come, athletes interested in selection for the 2019 Canada Winter Games – to be held in Red Deer, Alberta – will be asked to sign initial letters of commitment and begin working to a dedicated training program. Information regarding this opportunity will be distributed through club coaches.

Register now for our summer camp!

Registration for NWT Speed Skating’s summer camp is open until June 30, 2017.

The camp runs from August 23-27 in Yellowknife, with experienced coaches providing young skaters with a mix of on-ice and dry-land training each day.

This year, NWT Speed Skating is heavily subsidizing the cost – so summer camp is cheaper than ever!

Group 1 skaters pay $65 total for the five days. Skaters in Group 1 are usually aged 12-17, have some competition experience, and are working towards being a competitive skater at southern events.

Group 2 skaters pay $50 total for the five days. Skaters in Group 2 are usually aged 9-13, have less or no competition experience, and are focusing on developing their skills.

If you are unsure which of the two groups is the most appropriate for your child, check with their club coach for advice. If still unsure, contact NWT Speed Skating and we will make a recommendation on your behalf.

Please have your payment ready – in cash or as a cheque payable to NWTASSA – when you drop off your child on the opening day of the camp.

For any other questions about the camp, contact NWT Speed Skating and we’ll be in touch as soon as we can.

Registration closes on June 30. No late registrations will be accepted and there are no refunds available for cancellations after this date.
