The Calgary Speed Skating Association (CSSA) was established in 1975 and provides a balance between recreational and competitive skating. The program is provided with the framework established by Canada’s Long Term Participant and Athlete Development (LTPAD) model, promoting good sportsmanship with a harmonious team environment. The club has an annual membership of over 200 skaters ranging from the very young in Active Start (age 3) to Active 4 Life (seniors) in both long and short track.
All skaters are coached by a team of paid coaches, many of whom are NCCP certified and are or were high performance skaters themselves. The skaters get to take advantage of The Fastest Ice in the WorldTM at the Olympic Oval, often training along side Olympic champions and national team members from countries around the world.
Skaters regularly compete at local and inter-club meets as well as at the highest levels in Provincial, National and International competitions. Many members of the club have moved on into Elite National Team Programs.
CSSA is organized under the Alberta Societies Act and governed by a committed Board of Directors and paid professional management.
