Welcome to the 2013-2014 Speed Skating Season and Olympic Year!

Joyce LeggattSaturday, April 19th, 2014
It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of Joyce Leggatt.

Joyce had a long history in speed skating and was a founding member and past president of Cambridge Speed Skating Club. Joyce also served as a president of OSSA and long time board member of SSC, back when it was known as Canadian Amateur Speed Skating Association. She was also very involved with the US association, for a number of years supporting and maintaining the North American Short Track and Long Track Championships as part of a season's competition schedule.

Her dedication to the athletes was amazing. She was always fundraising or taking skaters away to meets herself. No one ever had to stay home if Joyce had her way; she wanted the skaters to experience everything that was available to them.

Together with her husband, Jackie, Joyce was a member of the Cambridge Sports Hall of Fame and a recipient of the Cambridge Athlete of the Year-Builder. She was also honoured with the Region of Waterloo Woman of the Year-Sports category.

Some of her other great speed skating achievements included:

  • Winning SSC's highest honour, the "John Hurdis" award
  • Manager of the Canada Winter Games on several occasions
  • Managed many Ontario Teams to Canadian and North American Championships
  • Chair of the Competition Committee at SSC (and CASSA)
  • Represented SSC (CASSA) as American Liaison for many years with the responsibility of North American Short Track and Long Track Championships
  • Chairperson of the World Team Championship held in Cambridge
Joyce will be greatly missed. For Service Details, Condolences and Tributes, please visit: www.obitsforlife.com/obituary/888948/Leggatt-Joyce.php

Do you feel the need for more speed?

Summer camps are a tried-and-true route to success in speed skating, as they represent an opportunity to focus on your technique away from the pressure of the racing season, plus build fitness and enhance racing strategies.

They also provide a chance to be exposed to a different set of coaches, and a fresh perspective on what speed skating is all about. So set yourself up for success and make our summer camp a part of your plan to achieving your goals.
