Vernon Speed Skating Club is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing children, youth and adults with the opportunity to participate in the sport of speed skating so that members may learn, enjoy and excel in the sport.

Why Speed Skating?

Wondering why you should consider speed skating for your family? Here are a few reasons why we think it’s special:  Exhilarating Exercise, Strong Camaraderie, Coaching For Life, Family Friendly, and nobody gets left on the bench!

Board of Directors

These are parents of skaters who volunteer their time to see that our Club is running smoothly. Please feel free to introduce yourself to them, as they are present at the rink watching their child(ren) skate.

How to Volunteer

The Vernon Speed Skating Club is operated on a volunteer basis and accepts new volunteers all throughout the year. While our main drive for membership volunteers occurs at the Annual AGM in April, parents willing to step up to help at any time are greatly appreciated by everyone. There are many roles and responsibilities our volunteers commit to.
