ST start helmet covers S Maunder Nov2017

The Lethbridge Speed Skating Association's main 2018 short track event is the Bridge Bolt and will be a two day meet on February 3rd and 4th, 2018.

A message from LSSA:

We are pleased to be able to invite all of you to join us in Lethbridge for our Bridge Bolt at Lethbridge's newest competition venue - the ATB Centre, in West Lethbridge. The facility includes a full canteen, licensed lounge and (heated!) viewing area that looks on to the ice surface.

As the only Alberta short track event between the Christmas break and the Alberta Winter Games this year, we're hoping many of you will take advantage of the opportunity to race with us as a pre-AWG tune-up. We plan to have divisions for FunD skaters all the way up to Masters.

The cost for each skater is $60, with one cheque per club made payable to LSSA and delivered during registration on Saturday February 3rd.

Registrations are due by January 26th. The club summary sheet (below) should be completed and emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

We also have group bookings available at two different hotels for those who need them. Please see the announcement (below) for further details.

We are a small club, so if you plan to attend and would like to help out as a volunteer we'd love to have your help. Please click the link below to see what positions are open and to sign up:
