Committed to Quality Athlete Development
Speed Skating Canada – and our Club - is committed to providing developmentally appropriate development of skaters and helping each individual participant achieve his or her own level of excellence.Science, research and decades of experience all point to the same thing: kids and adults will get active, stay active, and even reach the greatest heights of sport achievement if they do the right things at the right times. Our Club and our Coaches deliver programs based on that foundation.
Learn to Skate
All sessions held at the Kinsmen Arena in Moose Jaw.
About Learn to Skate
Learn to Skate lessons are designed to jump-start the beginner skater, ages 4 years and older.
Skaters wear their own hockey or figure skates and are segregated on the ice into smaller groups according to their skill level. This is to ensure there is a good ratio of coaches and helpers to skaters.

Ice times vary depending on Learn to Skate Sessions and the Long Track Season.
The regular season begins in October with our indoor Short Track program. Weather and facility dependent, we try to get outdoors Jan - Feb for some Long Track skating practice. During our Short Track practices we place padding around the boards of the rink for safety. Skaters have the option to attend meets held in Moose Jaw, across Saskatchewan and beyond as they progress. Short Track Races are mass start and it takes a great deal of agility, speed, and strategy to compete in a race. The races are exciting! A skater is not allowed to bump or push another skater and there are disqualifications when this happens.
Regular Season Programs skaters are divided into two groups - Novice and Advanced - for instruction and training. For more information on each of the skating developmental levels and to register visit: Join Now
