    right near Los Angeles.

    Without club ice it is almost impossible to maintain a program that will be able to grow young people into athletes or give anyone the opportunity the chance to experience an Olympic sport in Socal.
    Currently we have two clubs in Socal,  Santa Clarita Speedskating which is beginning to make an real impact and our new club LA Speedskating here in Lakewood.
    Here is the link to the "Contact Us" page for The Rinks Lakewood Ice.  The names you should focus on are Phil Zamora - General Manager for Lakewood Ice and The Rinks Vice President Art Trottier. 

     We must not give up our dreams.  Our kids, athletes and future Olympians must remember that the struggles to become or achieve our goals are what makes our accomplishments so sweet.
    Please forward this to as many people as you can,

    God Bless,
    Lloyd Brewer SCSSA 1st Vice Presiden

    The SCSSA is indebted to The LA84 Foundation of Los Angeles (Formerly the Amateur Athletic Foundation).  We would most likely be non-existent, and Rusty Smith, Maria Garcia, and JR Celski would most likely not have become members of the U.S. Olympic Short Track Speed Skating Team
    were it not for the gracious assistance of 
    The LA84 Foundation.
    Thank You!
