Great news! Starting next Sunday, November the 13th, the TSSC will be offering a new adult speed skating session for all new and experienced skaters. This will be a great opportunity for current adults skaters to improve their technique or for new adults skaters to try speed skating for the first time. This session will be coached by Robert Chann. For current TSSC members, this session would be in addition to your current skating days. Parents, don’t just sit in the stands and freeze anymore. Learn to speed skate and join your kids on the ice! Instead of just telling your kids how they should be skating, you can now get on the ice and show them how its done properly. As a bonus, skaters in this session will not need to put on or take off mats! We invite all adult skaters of all levels from all clubs around the GTA to join us for this great opportunity. If you’re not sure if you want sign up for the season, the first session is free!

3:30-4:15 -> November 13, November 26 , December 4, January 8, January 15, January 29, February 12, March 5, March 19 and March 26
