Regional Meets

SSO has adopted Speed Skating Canada’s (SSC) modified racing ages and distances from the updated Red Book. SSO remains focused on the need for improved skater and racer development across the province, which includes technique, speed, fitness, and racing tactics.


SSO also recognizes the need to welcome and attract new racers at the grassroots level as we strengthen the base of the Speed Skating Ontario pyramid and to provide fun introductory racing opportunities.

Clubs across Ontario are encouraged to host Regional Meets and invite Clubs in their Region and the Flex Region to participate, if they have space. Here are the list of Regions across Ontario for Regional Racing:

East: Ottawa, Gloucester, St. Lawrence, Kingston, Quinte, Kawartha

Central: Durham, Markham, Newmarket, Barrie, Toronto, Brampton

West: Milton, Oakville, Hamilton, Niagara, Cambridge, Kitchener Waterloo, London

Flex: Sudbury, Sault Ste Marie, Thunder Bay
