SAVE THE DATE FOR ALUMNI SOCIALS

 

USS Alumni Socials are an opportunity for speedskating friends to get together around a USS event in their region.  A more casual occasion than our periodic Alumni Reunions, USS Alumni Members (complimentary attendance/invite with membership) and Speedskating Alumni can get together and catch up over a drink and light hors d'oeuvres and enjoy some excellent speedskating action.

 

  • Dec. 19-20, 2015: US Short Track Junior Championships in Midland, Mich.
  • Jan. 8-10, 2015: US Long Track Championships Seniors and Juniors in Milwaukee, Wisc.
 
More detail to come! Please visit usspeedskating.org for updates.
