Learn to Speed Skate

Try speed skating with the Toronto Speed Skating Club

Speed skating is best enjoyed by skaters who have previously learned some of the basics of skating on hockey or figure skates. Although the club does not offer the most basic learn to skate programs (for those who have never skated), we do offer a Learn To Speed Skate (LTSS) program.  Certainly, you do not need to have good technique before you come – we can help you develop that. If you are the kind of person who loves to do laps at public skate sessions at the local rink, take steps to free your inner speed skater!

Skaters 18 and over

Please note:  This program is not a custodial setting. As such, parents are required to stay at the arena during the sessions when their child is skating, in order to provide rink-side support in case of emergency. We kindly request the help of parents to put the mats on the ice at the beginning of the sessions.
