Try Speed Skating

Come and try speed skating, one of Canada's most successful sports at the Olympics.  Programs are mainly run from the Olympic Oval facility at the University of Calgary, the "fastest ice in the world".  We are also looking at adding two locations for the fall and winter 2019-2020 season in two brand new facilities in Calgary: Brookfield YMCA in Seton (southeast Calgary) and the Seven Chiefs Sportplex in Tsuu T'ina (southwest). 

Participants (all ages 6 and above) must already be comfortable with the basics of skating, i.e. push & glide and getting back up unassisted, and be able to follow group instructions.

The cost of this program is $20 and includes skate rental, ice time and certified instructors.
