RRSSC 2024/2025 Intent to Register

RRSSC – ‘Intent to Register’ Sign-Up list – FALL/WINTER

RRSSC ‘Intent to Skate’ for the 2024-2025 Season sign-up form is open until June 15, 2024.  The information collected will assist us in planning/evaluating our programs, accommodate as many skaters as possible, based on the responses received and identify opportunities to improve on our current registration process. Registration/program development committee will review the responses before we open the Club registration.  Our goal is to ensure we meet the needs of our current speed skating community, and institute a fair registration process in order to welcome new (waitlisted) skaters interested in registering with us. For further information see our Registration page.

Schedules and registration fees to be confirmed after the RRSSC AGM.  ***Spots are subject to availability, skate sizes available in stock (if applicable), criteria as outlined below, location on the RRSSC list, residency and new skater waitlist.  Please select appropriately. Your session choice(s) will be reviewed and validated before 2024-25 season registration opens.  We are planning (tentatively) to open registration by July 1st, 2024.

Group 1 (G1) Beginner/New – Open to current RRSSC members and to potential ‘new to speed skating’ skaters.  Minimal skating skills assessed during TrySS session and developmentally ready to follow instructions from the coaches.

Focus: Fundamental speed skating techniques. This is NOT a learn to skate program.

Commitment level: Always have fun, listen to your coach and work hard at practice. Skaters new to speed skating may be encouraged to take community skating lessons based on coaches’ Try Speed Skating evaluations.

Group 2 (G2) Advanced – Open to 2023-24 RRSSC G2 skaters, RRSSC Alumni identified skaters and advanced level Senior/Master skaters. ***Spots are subject to availability based on the number of identified skaters in transition who are currently in the Group 1 program; location on the RRSSC list, residency and new skater waitlist.

Focus: ‘Train to train’ the skater in preparation for provincial and national competitions; goal setting; endurance training, and refinement of technical skills.
