Speed skating demo Sept. 22

The Williams Lake Speed Skating Association is offering a free demonstration Sept. 22.

If you’re into speed skating, or even interested in trying out the sport, the Williams Lake Speed Skating Association is hosting a special demonstration Sept. 22.

The event will be hosted at the Cariboo Memorial Complex starting at 1 p.m.

“The Kamloops Long Blades will be here and you will be amazed at the speed and talent of these young skaters,” said Williams Lake Speed Skating Association president Yvonne Hauk.

Following the demonstration there will be an opportunity for everyone to try speed skating. Participants will be fitted with a pair of skates but are asked to bring their own helmet and gloves.

“[You can] register now for fall (October to December), winter (January to March) or for the entire season,” Hauk said.

In addition, there will be a coaches clinic for anyone interested in helping out.

The cost will be covered by the WLSSA.

If interested contact Tania Lauren at 250-392-1748.
