#AwayFromTheOval Off-Season Social Media Contest

Skaters from coast-to-coast encouraged to get involved to help spread positivity, laughter and win awesome prizes 

OTTAWA, ONTARIO - It’s always tough being away from the oval, but this off-season it’s just a little bit tougher. We know it’ll be a while longer before we can strap on the skates again, but that doesn’t mean our sport has to remain hidden until winter!  

That’s why we’re launching the #AwayFromTheOval off-season social media contest! We want to engage the entire speed skating community – from grassroots to high performance – and showcase our sport and our athletes. Let’s use this downtime to help people learn more about speed skating, all while spreading some positivity and laughter.

Every Monday morning beginning April 27, SSC will post a “challenge” graphic on each of our social media accounts that will detail the type of content we’re looking for our followers to post. We’ll share some instructions the post so that we can track participation, re-share content and interact with our followers.

To help feed our competitive nature, those that participate in the contest will be entered into a weekly draw for some awesome prizes. One participant per week will be selected to win their choice of item from the SSC Online Store.

We’re looking for skaters from coast-to-coast to get involved. Let’s have some fun over these next couple months and create some hype going into next season!
