Default Thanks for the info!

I had been told about them but, unfortunately, they are in middle TN and I live about 2.5 hours from there. E. TN. seems to have turned into a vast skating waste land.

Based on what I saw out of the Sprinters this weekend in Ohio, it would be well worth the 2.5 hr trip. Those kids and the Old Guy brought it!

Thanks Crumpdaddy! We are really proud of everyone for their showing at the 1st Annual Buckeye Easter Classic! GO SPRINTERS! Old Guy took 6 to Regionals last year and we had 21 or 22 this past weekend, growing and getting faster all the time.

mtcooper, come on over! We have a Sunday practice, 11:30 am - 1:30 pm - you can make it. Dont know how old you are but we have like 10 adults skating now and will have some skating Quad Nationals this year.

Did you try visiting or calling local rinks?

rumor has it that someone was trying to put together a team at SkateTown in Fountain city since the rink is under new ownership but not sure about that. I do know that at the new rink in P Forge they are looking to see how much interest there is in a speed team, and if they get enough positive response then they will probably try and put one together. Hope this helps a little.
