The 2018 Alberta Winter Games will be held in the Wood Buffalo Region (the area in and around Fort McMurray), February 16th-19th.
Speed Skaters represent Alberta regional zones based on their residency (home address). An AWG Zone Map is available here:
The AWG Speed Skating Technical Package outlines the age categories and basic representation information. T2T1 (11/12 year olds) and T2T2 (13/14 year olds) are the speed skating age categories.
Each separate Alberta Zone determines how they will choose skaters to represent their zone. Most zones typically use times from eligible competitions to determine reps; some zones do not have enough interested and eligible skaters to fill the quota, so everyone gets to go! We will post more information about the zone criteria as we receive it.
