Ice Skating & Short Track Speedskating – Fall 2020 & Winter 2021

This ultra-niche competitive sport has an active scene in Michigan that’s nearly impossible to find unless you know the secret handshake. We can connect you and your family to this Club-based sport and introduce you to a whole new world on ice. If you lack the coordination for figure skating or the strength/speed/size for hockey, speedskating is another option.

Speedskating emphasizes balance, leg strength, core strength, and flexibility. But most importantly, it provides another fitness option during the winter.

WHAT WE TEACH: We begin with basic ice skating lessons through a learn-to-skate program at a local arena. As skaters progress in ability, we introduce group lessons with a US Skating certified coach.
