Registration for Speed Skating

Red Deer Central Lions Speed Skating Club uses the Speed Skating Canada Online Registration System (MMS) for Club Registrations. Current members can log-in using their email and password. New members can create an account and then register. 


Accounts

Each skater and adult (parent/guardian) must have a separate account. Adults register as Associate Members and Skaters register for Group 1, 2, or 3 based on age and ability.  New for 2017-2018: Accounts can be linked! If you have several speed skaters and parent/guardian accounts, these accounts can now be linked and managed together so you can log-in to one account and join/pay fees for several members.
