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 head (ASTM F 1849 certified or CSA approved hockey, snowboard/ski and skateboarding helmets are acceptable) , hand (leather gloves) and knee protection (volley ball pads). However we do highly recommend neck protection (goalie style bib) and shin protection (soccer style shin guards.

Note: Bicycle helmets are not permitted.

Milton Speed Skating

The Milton Speed Skating Club was formed in 2004 by a dedicated group of individuals who wanted to see children participate in and eventually become competitive in the sport of speed skating. Our club caters to Youth, 5-18 years of age, but will accept older members and has a family rate plan if parents want to skate with their children. We offer speed skating for people located in Milton, Acton, Burlington, Georgetown, Oakville, Mississauga, and Halton Hills.
