Why Choose Speed Skating?
Speed skating provides unparalleled flexibility among ice based sports
Unlike team sports, or sports where you pay a coach directly for each session, speed skating allows families to attend training when it works for them. If you cannot make a particular training session, that’s not a problem! Take that winter vacation, we’ll be here when you get back.
A fixed training schedule
Means you know during registration when your training times will be. Eliminate the guesswork when trying to plan other activities for your family.
Select the level of competition that makes sense for you and your family
Whether you like to travel the province, race locally, or not at all, you are in charge of your competition schedule. Choose which events make sense for your family.
Keep your family together
Racing events have multiple ability and age categories, so your 7 year old, 10 year old, and 13 year old can all race at the same event. Training times are also frequently adjacent meaning one trip to the rink or oval for everyone.
Experience a community like no other
Almost every CSSA family joined without prior experience with speed skating. We know what it is like to be new, and everyone is willing to help out and answer questions. Spend a little time with us and you will soon understand why so many families stay with this wonderful sport.
