The Roseville Skate School is the perfect place to learn the basics. Speed skating is all about edges and being comfortable on ice blades. Learn to Skate classes teach important basics and allow your skater to gain confidence. Tell your coach that you are interested in speed skating and they can cover the basics that all skaters need to know.
