Students work with our Certified Coaching Staff and assistants to learn basic to intermediate skills that will lead to a lifetime of roller skating enjoyment and physical fitness.
Children can be taught as soon as they can walk. Adults are welcome also! This is a “learn at your own pace class”, unlike other classes that have a scheduled number of class. We offer our Super Star Skating Class, year round!
Speed Skating Classes
Think You Can Skate Fast?
Few sports can match the head-to-head excitement of speed skating. It’s a sport everyone can readily understand – racing – where the gold medals and trophies go to those who skate the fastest. When people are first introduced to the sport they are usually surprised by the sheer numbers as well as the enthusiasm found at competitions.
Speed skaters share a determination to race as fast and as far as they can. This youthful enthusiasm is matched by the sport, which demands a blend of quickness, stamina and strategy.
It’s fun, exciting, healthy, social and rewarding. The benefits, however, go beyond winning. Skaters learn the importance of teamwork, of being persistent and organized, and of setting and reaching goals. It builds strength and discipline, while teaching the value good sportsmanship.
Speed skating is a non-contact sport, requiring skaters to display the skill to maneuver cleanly through the pack and into winning position. Skaters are disqualified for pushing, blocking, forcing another racer out of position, or using their arms, legs, or hands in any way which impedes the progress of other competitors.
