Registration for Speed Skating

Online Registration

All registrations and payments are completed online. A transaction fee is applied to all payments. 

Alberta Speed Skating and Speed Skating Canada have updated their Membership Categories and Fees. All speed skaters in Canada must register with a Club affiliated with a provincial organization and Speed Skating Canada. Fees are based on the level of skating (e.g. Elite, Competitive, Participant). All adults/volunteers/officials must also register as an Associate Member. Membership categories and fees for 2020-2021 are available on Alberta Speed Skating: SSC and AASSA Fees.

Skates and Damage Deposits

All families must supply a damage deposit cheque for Speed Skates and for Racing Skins. These are held by the Club Treasurer until the end of the season and destroyed when Club Equipment is returned in good working condition. Normal wear-and-tear is acceptable but significant damage may result in a Damage Deposit Cheque being cashed by the Club.

  • $125.00 Damage Deposit Cheque per skater for Speed Skates
  • $125.00 Damage Deposit Cheque per skater for Club Racing Skin (if competitive skater)
  • New cheques will be collected from all new and returning families at the start of each season in September during Equipment Pick-up
  • Equipment will not be released until Damage Deposit Cheques are on file with the Club
  • Cheques must be dated for 31 August of the following year (this covers skate use at Summer Speed Camp in July)
    • If you do not have personal cheques, we can discuss alternate damage deposit payment methods

Associate and Affiliate Members

Adult Associate Member / Coach / Officials

All adults in a family are expected to volunteer to support the Club. All adults in a family (parents, guardians, caregivers) must register as Associate Members. 

An Associate Member is a member of a Canadian speed skating club who contributes as a coach, official, volunteer or parent who does not participate as a skating member. We do not charge a Club Fee for these roles.

Adult Associate Registration Fee: $21.50 (+ transaction fees)


Elite, Affiliated Skaters

A skater who participates in sanctioned international and / or national competitions, namely SSC National Championships (age, junior, senior), Canada Cups, North American, Canada Winter Games and selection in Canada. Skaters in this category do not train in Red Deer with the Club, but are Affiliated with the Red Deer Club. Only the AASSA/SSC Fee is charged for this membership.

Elite, Affiliated Skater Registration Fee: $163.00 (+ transaction fees)

Please note, Club skaters who qualify for National events (such as CanWest or Canadian Youth Long Track Championships) will be upgraded from Competitive to Elite and have the difference in AASSA/SSC Fee applied to their account.
