Season Targets:  There are many targets for skaters to set their sights on (CWG's, Alberta Winter Games, Arctic Winter Games, ST/LT Canada Cups, CYST, CYLT, Personal Bests) and our programming will reflect support for every athlete and their goals as they participate and develop in robust training groups.
