Pins TestingPosted: 20141202
Pins Testing Night at CSSC

Pins Testing enables all the skaters to be able to set and achieve goals, whether or not they are competitive or recreational skaters! With the help of our great coaches, the pins program has been put back into action!

We'll have another test session(s) in March 2015.

Skaters are awarded their pins for their respective "Pin Level" at our AGM.

A BIG thanks to Richard Shoebridge for taking time out of his busy schedule to visit and skate with CSSC members.

Shoebridge was back in Cambridge for a few days during a break in the short-track schedule and took the opportunity to stop by his old Cambridge Speed Skating Club Tuesday night.

Richard ShoebridgeSpeedskater is Cambridge Athlete of the Year

CAMBRIDGE - A speedskater who competed in the 2014 Winter Olympics, but not for Canada, is the Cambridge athlete of the year.

Richard Shoebridge received the honour Friday night at the annual Cambridge Sports Awards dinner at the Cambridge Holiday Inn.

Shoebridge, 29, was a member of the British short-track speed skating team at the Olympics in Sochi in February. He is from Cambridge but holds joint Canadian and British citizenship so was able to compete for Great Britain. He finished 27th in the 1,000 metre race.

This past weekend (Nov 1st and 2nd) we hosted the first Provincial Series Meet of the season. There were 135 skaters seeking top placements, personal best times and milestone markers. Our very own Josh Dorland was successful in breaking his 60 second 500m distance (a significant milestone for the younger skaters). CONGRATULATIONS, JOSH!

This weekend's meet could not have taken place if it were not for the many volunteers. In fact, it takes over 50 volunteers per day to support a 2 day meet. A special thanks goes out to Patti Dennison who coordinated the kitchen work, picked up the food, sent out requests for silent auction items (and the list goes on). Another special thanks goes out to Rebecca Champagne, Meet Coordinator and to Vince Carruthers, who pulled together a great team for the setup and tear down (and setup and tear down) and well as working his magic to provide the best ice possible. Thanks to Marg Oliveira for acting a mentor and motivational support coach. Thanks to Duncan Patrick for coming back to be our announcer and to all other past members for your support. Finally, a big thanks to every other volunteer not personally mentioned here, to the officials and all coaches who put in countless hours to support your athletes in reaching for their dreams.

Cambridge - Provincial Meet #1


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!
