Group 2 - Learn to Speed Skate

0G4A0858

For Ages 7 to 10 years

Intended for intermediate skaters either moving up from our Group 1 program or skaters who can attempt to skate backwards, crossover on a corner, stop, and glide on one skate.

 

This group focuses on learning how to speed skate. Coaches use games, drills, and on-track skating to establish good speed skating technique. Many skaters start participating in local and provincial speed skating meets. Some skating experience is an asset, but older new skaters can also take advantage of this group. Skaters can participate in hockey or figure skates and transition to speed skates (rentals available). Skaters can also start the season in speed skates, skate pick-up is at the end of August annually.

Tuesday and/or Thursday 6:30pm – 7:15pm weekly

Full regular season runs from October to the end of March. Half season, October to end of December or January until the end of March also available.

Registration is open throughout the season

Location: Lions Arena, 2205 Mceown Ave, Saskatoon

Equipment: most skaters will wear speed skates, but hockey or figure skates can be used. Additional safety equipment is required and can be found here: Equipment Requirements.
