Learn to Speed Skate - Milton Speed Skating

Milton Speed Skating offers 4 week Introduction to Speed Skating lesson throughout the season.


Why not learn to go fast AND have fun!

Contact registration[at] for more information.


The introduction to Speed Skating program is run in four week sessions throughout the skating season. The objective of the program is for participants to try the sport and see if they would like to continue as a regular member.


This program is open to all skaters 5 years and older who have basic skating skills.  The skater should be able to navigate one (100m) counter-clockwise lap of the ice under their own power in a reasonable amount of time (about 35 seconds).  Or have completed Pre-CanSkate level 6 or CanSkate level 1 which is offered by many skating clubs including the Milton Skating Club.  Depending on the makeup of each intro group, the coach will gauge the level of the skaters and pick the activities accordingly.


When the program is completed, the Introduction to Speed Skating participants will be assigned to a regular practice group and offered a pro-rated fee for the remainder of the skating season.


Equipment for Intro Participants:

Introduction-to-Speed-Skating participants only require:

  • helmet  (hockey, snowboard/ski and skateboarding helmets are acceptable)
  • gloves (ideally a cut resistance leather type gloves )
  • knee protection (volley ball knee pads).

We do highly recommend:

  • neck protection (goalie style Kevlar bib)
  • shin protection (soccer style shin guards).

Note: Bicycle helmets are not permitted.

The Milton Speed Skating Club provides the skates & ankle guards

We do have a limited amount of loaner equipment for Introduction to Speed Skating participants.
