Upcoming Parent/Coach Meeting

Coach Sandi and Coach Karen will be meeting with the parents in the stands on Monday, January 15 at 6:30 pm. Ice time for Cheetahs and Dryland for Roadrunners will run as regularly scheduled with other Coaches/helpers.

IMPORTANT – Changes to January 22 practice!
We have a large number of Girl Guides coming to try speed skating on January 22. In order to accommodate this, the schedule will be changed as follows:

  • Mats on as usual
  • 6:30 – 7:30 Little Cheetahs and Girl Guides
  • 7:00 – 8:00 Big Cheetahs
  • 7:30 – 9:00 Roadrunners
  • 8:00 – 9:00 Coyotes
  • There will be no Rattlesnake practice that night as it’s right after the BC Long Track.  However, we will need as much help as possible with the large group of girls, so any Rattlesnakes or Prickly Pears who would like to come and help will be appreciated!
