Spring & Summer Programs

Off-season training for the sport you love is here!

2020 Virtual Spring Programs

We hope you are all staying safe during these times. As we continue to monitor the Covid-19 situation, we have developed a new program to keep our skaters active in the meantime. We will continue to update you on what our program will look like for June, July and August. 

We are happy to announce that the Virtual Spring Program for the month of May is now available on RAMP to all skaters in Alberta and beyond! You will be able to register under the 2020 Summer Program. The Zoom platform will be used by coaches Sam Pollock, Marika Nadal, Ryan Hickman, and Debby Fisher. The idea is to provide virtual instruction to our skaters to continue the development of skills in the upcoming month.

The main objective for the Calgary Speed Skating Association – Summer Training Program will be the overall development of the athlete’s physical capacities with a focus on aerobic capacity, strength conditioning and improving their fundamental movement skills.

The key points of this program are:

  • Development of the aerobic base;
  • Development and improvement of strength;
  • Introduction or further development of speed and sport-specific skills;
  • Session on stretching, nutrition and hydration, mental preparation; and

Establish pre-competition, competition and post competition routines.
