Skinsuit Order

Jen will be placing a skinsuit order soon. If you’d like to be put you on the list, please see Jen at practice or email the club. This is the link to the size chart:

Skins can be made semi-custom by using chest measurement for size and shortening or lengthening the leg measurement. They will be made without stirrups unless you ask for them.

The gray, one piece cut resistant suits are no longer available from Pyroapparel, our skinsuit vendor. Since they aren’t custom, you can purchase a different style from Special Equipment, Pyroapparel, Cascade or another vendor on your own.

We have a few skins of various sizes in the swap, mostly the old style. You just borrow until you’re done with the suit then give it back.

Registration open for Ellis Edge Camp

Registration is now open for the Ellis Edge camp hosted by Bay State Speedskating. The camp will be over Memorial Day weekend, May 27-29 (Sat -Mon). The camp is coached by the world-renowned Sue Ellis, former US National and 2002 Olympic team coach. Sue will be assisted this year by Hongyang Wang, former member of the Chinese National Team and current head coach of the ASE Short Track program in Milwaukee.

It will have 8 hours of on ice instruction as well as lots of off-ice work. This camp is appropriate for all levels, ages 8 and older, with the ability to do cross-overs.
