Latest News & Information

Extended Training - Sat 1st June - 'Ready to Race' Camp

The Mohawks Ice Racing Club had a brilliant extended training session on Saturday 1st June 2024.  This 2 hour session was aimed at junior and novice skaters and focused on 'Ready to Race'....with some coaching on starting in races, race technique, actual short timed races and lots of fun and games.

 

It was a well attended session and all the youngsters / future superstars really enjoyed it. Leading this was head coach Tom Iverson but we had the cream of TeamGB Short Track coaches and skaters in attendance...so huge thanks to Jo Eley, Richard Shoebridge, Niall Treacy, Peter Riches, Adam Hill Jnr, Mandy Worth for supporting the event and sharing their wisdom with both the junior and senior skaters. Our senior skaters also had a tough session skating over 75 good quality laps in a duration pyramid interval session. 

The club is grateful for the funding received from individuals which has enabled this extended session to take place and we had a brilliant and successful time all round.  

Thanks all from the MIRC Committee 

 

Training Safety Guidelines - A Reminder!!

As we train on ice, our sessions are often busy. Safety is our priority. All skaters, and parents of younger skaters, please be reminded of our training session safety guidelines.

 

  • Always wear safety equipment at all times when on the ice (Racing suit or Tracksuit covering all areas, shin pads, knee pads, gloves (ideally cut resistant for main groups), neck protector, helmet, protective glasses are optional but recommended.

  • When getting on the ice move away from the barrier when safe.

  • Drinks are to be kept at the café end of the inside track apex cone. Do not skate around until the barrier doors are closed and pads in place.

  • If you are doing slow warm up laps be very aware of other skaters especially younger skaters needing to cross the ice.

  • Always skate around anti clockwise unless instructed differently.

  • No junior F, E, D skaters should cut across the track to get to the barrier unless coaches are notified and it is safe to do so.

  • Avoid the middle area of the track that we have coned off as a safe zone for younger skaters

  • Please use common sense and consider your own and other skaters safety at all times, leaving gaps between skaters if you feel necessary, if you are being overtaken then stay on the racing line close to blocks.
