Starting in the 2010-11 season, the Sub-Club Awards program recognizes the first occasion on which a skater achieves a personal best time within certain categories. Generally, Sub-Club awards will be issued based on the following criteria;
- 400m Sub-Clubs on the 100m track will decrease in 5 second increments from 90 seconds down to 50 seconds. From 50 seconds to sub-40 seconds will decrease in 2.5 second increments.
- 500m Sub-Clubs on the 111m track will decrease in 5 second increments from 70 seconds to 60 seconds. Then from 60 seconds to 50 seconds in 2.5 second increments. Then from 50 seconds to 40 seconds in 1.0 second increments.
