Alberta Speed Skating is fortunate to have another casino on August 19-20, 2018 at the Elbow River Casino in Calgary.The funds raised by our casino will be used to support grass-roots speed skating programs across the province. We require approximately 45 volunteers to cover shifts over our two-day alloted casino period.

Refreshments and free parking are provided to volunteers. AASSA will also provide some travel hotel cost reimbursement for out-of-town volunteers. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.
