Spring & Summer Programs

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

2020 Spring & Summer 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 as our program evolves throughout the summer with the changing situation.

We are happy to announce that the Virtual Spring & Summer Program for the months of May, June, and July are 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.

Coaches will send an invite to the Zoom meeting in the weekly program email. A link to the YouTube playlist with recorded sessions will also be sent so skaters may have access to look back on past training sessions.

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.
