What is special about speed skating?
Speed skating is a sport where...
  • Male and female skaters can practice together and sometimes race together.
  • Skaters can compete against others during meets, against themselves for personal best achievements, or don’t have to compete at all.
  • Skaters practice as a group but race as individuals.
  • Family members of all ages and abilities can participate.

Introduction to Speed Skating
This is a trial membership that includes 4 on-ice session and skate / equipment rental.
Any age is the right age to learn speed skating; we have members from as young as 6 to over 60 and often have children and parents/grandparents skating at the same time. There are, however, certain basic skating abilities that are necessary to participate safely and effectively in the introductory program. These prerequisites are:
  • Glide on one foot from blue line to red line
  • Stop on a whistle from full speed in 5 meters
  • From a standing start complete one lap in 40 seconds
  • Listen to and then perform a sequence of three instructions
Total Cost: $80.00 (Full membership fee is reduced by this amount if the skater continues)
