Speed Skating Canada implemented a new online membership registration system in 2018 called the Membership Affiliation System (MAS). All branches of SSC are required to use MAS. AASSA implemented MAS in partnership with the Alberta Clubs in the 2018-2019 speed skating season and we will continue to work with all partners to maximize the use and efficiency of MAS.
MAS has re-opened for Club registrations on August 1st, 2019, including many enhancements that were identified in the inaugural MAS season.
MAS Resources, updated with step-by-step instructions, are here:
