This year, the NWTASSA will not be able to host its annual Championship in the usual format. Instead it will be hosting a virtual championship by asking local speed skating clubs to host standard territorial events each in their own facilities in a manner that conforms to applicable public health restrictions.
The Yellowknife Speed Skating Club is hosting events for its skaters on Sunday, March 7 and 14 at Ed Jeske Arena. Skaters will skate either March 7 OR 14. Skaters will be divided by age and in a manner to make them skate with skaters of the same skill level. See below for a breakdown of dates and times (ages are as of June 30, 2020). Your skater’s time/group will be confirmed once all the registrations are in and the groups are all made.
