Youth Ice Racing Championships at Muskegon State Park

Muskegon State Park, in conjunction with the Muskegon Sports Council, is hosting a “GO-Get Outdoors” Youth Ice Racing championship event on Friday, Feb. 12, as part of a three-day West Michigan Youth Winter Sports Fest, where hundreds of young athletes compete in novice and expert divisions in over 23 sports.

This is a pack-style racing event on a measured oval track, with six to eight skaters beginning on the ice rink starting line. All participants will skate in three races, set at different distances, based on age and gender. Points are awarded based on the finishing positions in each race. Overall winners are determined by the combined, three-race, total points, and medals will be awarded to the first three places in each age division. Check-in and registration will be held from 4 to 5 p.m. at the Muskegon Winter Sports Complex. Registration is encouraged before Jan. 30 if the competitor wishes to receive an event t-shirt. The entry fee is $15 for all participants.

The Muskegon Winter Sports Complex is located at 462 Scenic Dr. in North Muskegon, at the north entrance of the park. Information about this event, or other events taking place at the Muskegon Winter Sports Complex, or to obtain an entry form, visit www.msports.org. The sports complex also requires everyone to show proof of health insurance.
