INTRO TO SPEED SKATING - 4 Hours

Family

Kids

Adult/Teen

 

If you would like to try speed skating but are hesitant to commit to a full season at the outset, then the best way to start is to enroll in one of our Intro To Speed Skating programs during the skating season (September - April). This will introduce you to the skills and thrills of the sport for a limited time and price.

You will receive:

  • four sessions total of ice time on 4 separate evenings
  • instruction from our coaches
  • use of speed skates

These will be held during our regular ice time on four sessions (normally successive, but can be spread out if you are unable to come on that schedule) at the Mount Joy arena in Markham. Please arrive one half hour before ice time on the evening of your first session, for skate fitting and preparation.

The all-inclusive cost will be $100 plus Speed Skate Canada fee ($17). If taken during the regular season (September-March) the cost can be applied towards a regular Club membership if you choose to continue.

Bring your curiosity, an appetite to learn, and a desire to excel!

Please see Equipment needed for Speed Skating for information on what to bring!
