Olivia Scott - Named Female Short-track Speed Skater of the Year

Breakthrough pays off!

The Ontario Speed Skating Association took note of Olivia Scott's breakthrough season and recognized her accomplishments with a significant award at last month's annual general meeting.

Olivia, a graduate of Woodland Christian High School, moved to Calgary last summer to train at the Olympic Oval and study kinesiology.

The intense training paid immediate dividends, she said, as she went on to compete in four national-level competitions this past season and was the highest-ranked Ontario participant at the end of the schedule.

Canada East 2016 Banquet Highlights

Canada East was a memorable experience for both Daria and myself. I thought that I would share a link to the banquet highlights, the athletes had a great time! A lot of food, but sadly no seafood in the buffet :( Still a great time, a lot of stories to tell all of you when we meet next. This is the link to the banquet highlights showing the parade of athletes, the banquet hall and a few familiar faces!

Cambridge Multi-Sport OvalPosted: 20141020 - THE TIME HAS COME

Cambridge Multi-Sport Oval

Presently the people of Cambridge are frustrated with the lack, size and age of the facilities available for sport and leisure within the City.

Organizations are forced to travel to communities outside of Cambridge to participate in the activities they enjoy.

Decades of fiscal restraint coupled with continuous growth has Cambridge in a prime position financially to offer the expansion of its facilities to include this Multi-Sport Oval facility.

Please visit: www.cambridgeoval.ca for more information on this exciting opportunity that could lead Cambridge and the Region of Waterloo to the centre stage of athletics in Southern Ontario!
