Have you watched Olympic speedskaters and wished that you could skate as fast or as efficiently? This class is a great introduction to the sport as well as an opportunity to improve your skating technique. Sessions provide intermediate level skater instruction on long blades as well as drills to enhance your skating efficiency and enjoyment. Long blade speedskates are available for $15 (first come, first served). You must be competent and comfortable on hockey, figure, or inline skates to qualify for this class (this is not a "learn to skate" class). Sign up for a single session or multiple sessions. In each session, instructors review basic technique and then work individually with students according to their progress and needs.

ADULT GROUP SPEEDSKATING
Speedskating is not just about racing. It is also an excellent activity for recreation, getting/staying in shape and keeping active. On Thursday evenings, (Nov-March) the Greater MN Speedskating Association provides an opportunity to join an adult group skate. Just a bunch of fun people out for a skate (and maybe out for a beer afterwards…) Look for additional details this Fall on this page and on mnspeedskating.com. Sign up for the newsletter at mnspeedskating.com to stay informed about scheduling information.
