Group 2 - Learn to Speed Skate
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.
Full regular season: October to the end of March
Half season: January until the end of March
