Update on Jack Shea Sprints Registration

Lake Placid Speed Skating Club is doing everything in its power to host meets as scheduled. As in previous years, and earlier this season, LPSSC has only a verbal agreement with the Oval management to use the Oval during the scheduled race times. 

The Jack Shea Sprints registration opening has been delayed because we are waiting on time confirmations from Oval management. We are hoping to have registration open the beginning of next week. 

For accommodations, we recommend waiting until confirmation of the meet times before reserving rooms. There should be plenty of hotel rooms available in Lake Placid that weekend. 

We recommend the following:

Lysek’s Hillcrest Inn

Art Devlin’s Olympic Motor Inn

Cobble Mountain Lodge

Hampton Inn and Suites

When booking, check that there is a short cancellation period. We have heard that some establishments require a week or longer notice for cancellation. Please contact us at for assistance with accommodations.

As always, these events are contingent on weather and the coordination of ice. We are planning on hosting this event but want confirmation from rink management before opening registration.
