Season opens March 24

 March's video is online now

The 2023 schedule will be sent on the 15th of March. The skater registration form has been updated for 2023

  • We will no longer be using previous platforms such as meetup, kommunity, eventbrite, facebook and similar, to organize events.
  • If you have friends that do inline skate, feel free to forward them this email

For everyone's safety and preferences, we notify skaters to events and or groups as per their registration form as well as demonstrated skills and equipment backing up skating sessions.

  • A public calendar of events will be sent and published on the 15th
  • No guests for any event (including annuals). All skaters (friends included) must register their profiles.
  • For the safety of everyone, we reserve the right to send invites and notifications as we see fit in regard to skill and equipment. We skate distances not circles.
  • One monthly news email about the group activity is sent from November to March and others may be sent throughout the remaining year with event information.
  • Being part of the group is a privilege and not a demanded right and we like to keep it wholesome, respectful and without politics.
  • Unrealistic, untruthful, lies, trolling registration forms, (something not right) will obviously be discarded as they have been in the past.

New wiki Information 

Weekly events

  • Friday night skating events start after 6 pm.
  • Tuesday nights are back after 6 pm.
  • We have plans for an occasional Saturday morning session that may replace a Friday
  • More than one event per week may happen
  • If enough skaters join events we may have social skate sessions
  • More than one host may host events
  • Some events requiring minimum skater attendance that end up with less than the required attendance will be prone to cancellation 5 to 3 hours prior to the event. Participants will be notified by email only if you said that you will attend with a YES. (we don't make decisions on Maybe)
  • The season will start with rinks and sports track practice, as well as trails starting 2km in length and increasing distance on a weekly basis until mid-July up to 12~18km in order to build up performance and be fit for summer.
  • By mid-July the trail length will vary and sometimes will be up to 15 to 20km and in August up to 15 to 50km depending on the event. There will also be short distance events.
  • With less daylight, the September trail distance will decrease in the reverse order that started, we will skate in the city (not trails) and do a bit of urban skating as well as get back to the rinks, skate parks and sports tracks for freestyle practice.

Event organization

  • Skaters are responsible for their safety, punctuality, and equipment and should consult the event rules and guidelines to know what is expected and or needed.
  • Waiting for skaters is technically troublesome as it can delay the event by up to 1 hour. Anyone expecting to arrive late will have to find us and catch up

Skater: Speedy 

  • Has been inline skating since 2002.
  • This is the fifth year organizing events in the GTA.
  • Will not be available for individual chats and or emails.
  • 2023, could be the last year that Speedy will organize events.
  • The final decision is pending on how 2023 will go. A formal announcement will be published at the end of 2023.

Annual events 

  • 8 annual events are planned for the year. We expect at least 3 to 6 to happen.
  • Dates have been decided by admins due to the ineffectiveness of the skater voting polls during 2022
  • See https://torontobladers.ca/wiki/Annual_events for the type of events.
