Register for the 2018-19 Season

Registration is now open for Hampton Speed Skating for the 2018-19 Season. For those that registered last year, there is a slight change from last year; You will not have to register separately with Speed Skate Canada. This year this will be done by the Hampton Club.

September Ice

Skating is just around the corner !!
Hampton Speed Skating has early ice starting Sept. 12 at 5:00pm; Yes this is a Wednesday.
Early Ice will run 5:00pm – 6:30pm on Sept. 12th, 19th, 26th, and Oct. 3rd.
Early Ice is for Group 1 and Group 2 skaters only.
Regular season skating, for all skaters, starts on Oct.8(Monday). I will send out another email as it gets a little closer to the date.
We are going to have a skate fitting session at the rink on Saturday September 8 from 11:00am -1:00pm. This is for “any” skaters that wish to wear speed skates this season.
If your skater wishes to wear speed skates, and can’t make the fitting session, just let us know and we can set something up.
Speed Skate Canada and Speed Skate New Brunswick are in the process of implementing a new registration system. I’ll send out an email as things evolve.  If early skating starts before the registration system is up and running, and I expect it too, just show up at the rink and we will get registered after the fact.
If you have any question, please let me know.
See you at the rink!

Thanks so much
