About the Meet:

  • Ability format. Skaters will be ranked based on seed times, and groups will be selected based on these seed time rankings. This is a modified ability meet, meaning that skaters will race against boys and girls with similar seed times to their own.

  • Skaters aged 5 and under (on or before June 30, 2021) are in the Rocket category and skate only at lunch on February 26. Skaters aged 6 and up race all day.

  • There will be no food or drinks for volunteers this year due to COVID regulations. We apologize!

  • Masks and Proof of Vaccination (POV) are required for anyone 12 years and older. The City of Yellowknife is now asking for POV from people over the age of 12 that enter the Multiplex.

  • Parents are asked to limit their time in the dressing rooms to only helping their skaters get dressed. Skaters must keep their masks on until they are on ice.

  • YKSSC will still provide screen free items (games, etc) for the skaters in the dressing rooms.
