USS would like to give a BIG shout out to the Madison Speedskating Club for hosting a successful Short Track Age Group Nationals / AmCup Finals in Verona, WI, March 22-24. It was the largest domestic event on the US Speedskating schedule, but the event SOLD OUT.

More than 180 age group skaters, 20 AmCup skaters and two dozen Chinese skaters enhanced the racing experience for all competitors. There was amazing support from family, friends, USS Volunteers and coverage from three local Madison TV Stations!

More than 26 hours of racing culminated in new age group champions, new American Cup champs and a Junior B 500m National Record set by Joonhwa Hong.

Organized by Bob Neveille and Tom Riley, volunteers spent hours at the rink each day to ensure safe and fun racing conditions.

“Thank you to the main sponsors of the event, Brupee, Toyota, the Madison Area Sports Commission and the Verona Chamber of Commerce,” said USS Events Director Marion Wohlrab. “Thanks also to Joel Marshall from the Verona Ice Arena for being so helpful and to the Pettit and ASE for letting us borrow the pads to enhance safety. And thanks for the complimentary fried cheese curds! Congrats to all competitors for their efforts and performances.”

Mark your calendars for next year when the event will be in Green Bay, Wisconsin, March 20-22, 2020, the top three skaters in each age group will be automatically invited to the Next Generation Development Training Camp.
