FUNdamentals Meet
Saturday, November 2nd from 9am to 2:30pm Charles Gorman Arena, 80 University Avenue, Saint John

In this FUNdamentals Meet younger skaters will participate in an exciting day of race themed activities designed to showcase the age and stage appropriate skills that they are learning. This includes several races, on varying size tracks, in both clockwise and counter clockwise directions. Skaters will be grouped according to their abilities and/or times to keep it fair and fun for all. This will be a FUN introduction to competition for some, and a change from standard 2 day long meets for others.
