OTTAWA, ONTARIO – A new edition of the Speed Skating Canada’s Red Book – which serves as the primary technical point of reference for our sport – has been published for the 2022-23 season. The Red Book provides critical guidance regarding Procedures and Regulations for speed skating competitions, events, and programs.
Those familiar with the last edition of the Red Book, published in 2018-19, can refer to the Summary of Changes document for easy reference to differences between the two versions. These changes were made based on input from our community and in consultation with the Sport Development Advisory Council.
While it has been several years between recent publications of the Red Book, we intend to resume annual updates to the Procedures and Regulations moving forward. With that in mind, we encourage members of our community to use this online survey to provide feedback on the document and recommend further changes for SSC’s consideration next season.
Club Town Hall
Speed Skating Canada will be hosting a Club Town Hall on Thursday, October 20 from 7:30 to 9:00pm ET to review changes to the Red Book and cover several other important updates from SSC. Participants must register for the Club Town Hall in advance and will receive a link to the Zoom meeting by email. The session will be recorded for any clubs who are unable to attend.
