Skills Development Program
For the skater who loves to go fast, skills development is the key. With learning still focused on the fun of participating in sport, key skills are developed through instruction, drills, games and fun racing. Skaters continue through progressively more advanced skills development, working their way through the various levels of the Speed Skating Canada Cutting Edge Pin Program. Skaters can continue into the Recreational Program, or the Competitive Program.
Helmets and short track speed skating safety equipment are mandatory for this program.
Skills Development program is offered Tuesdays and Thursdays 7:10 - 8:00 PM.
FEES (including SSC/SSNS annual fees ($30) which will be deducted if paid earlier in the season):
