Try Speed Skating


Come and try speed skating, one of Canada’s most successful sports at the Olympics!

Programs are mainly run at the Olympic Oval Short Track at the University of Calgary, the Fastest Ice In The World™. We have also added a new location for the fall and winter 2019-2020 season in a brand new facility in Calgary: Brookfield YMCA in Seton (southeast Calgary).

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.
