2016 Oakland Ice Subscriptions due soon

JasonWe have completed the first year of the Oakland Ice subscription plan.

The first year was successful and we will  enter the 2016-2017 season financially healthy.

Speedskating is  an Olympic sport. As a result, the sport’s popularity is tied to the Olympic four year cycle.  Since NCSA’s inception, we have gone through 7 Olympic cycles.  In all cases, the third year of the cycle is the hardest on most groups.  We are entering the third and most difficult year of the Winter Olympics cycle.

Please check out the subscription page:  Oakland Ice Subscription Form
