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

We will be starting up a new series of Learn to Speed Skate sessions in September.  A full schedule is posted bellow.  Please fill out this form to be place on our email distribution list for LTSS programming or contact the registrar at TSSC registrar

Equipment

LTSS cost includes rental of short track speed skates.  Additionally, the participant must bring to the rink the following safety equipment:

  • Helmet (bike or hockey)
  • Gloves (ideally cut-proof, but leather or hockey gloves are fine)
  • Neck guard (hockey)
  • Knee pads (inline skating or volleyball)
  • Shin guards (soccer style and preferably without the under-foot strap)

 

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.
