Welcome to the Winnipeg Speed Skating Web site
Please look around the website here you will find where and when we skate. You’ll also see a menu for registration, which includes the fundraising requirements and the fees for the year. The long track and short track pages describe each style and the equipment that is needed in both long track and short track.
The club skates out of the Sargent Park arena on Mondays 6:00pm – 7:30pm and Thursdays 6:15pm – 7:45pm. The year starts in October and ends in March. The skating year is split into thirds the 1/3 is indoors (Oct to end of Dec), 2/3 outdoors at the Susan Auch Oval (Jan and Feb), and then back indoors for the last month.

Monday, January 6, 2014 the club moves outdoors for speed skating practices. Our practice times will stay the same (6pm on Monday and 6:15pm on Thursday).
Last outdoor session for this season: Thursday, February 13th.
We will be skating at the Susan Auch Oval that is situated between the Sargent Park arena (where we do our indoor skating) and the Cindy Klassen Rec Centre (located at the corner of Sargent Ave and Wall Street).
While we skate outdoors, we will meet in Club Room 4 at the Cindy Klassen Rec Centre. Parking for the centre is accessed from Sargent Avenue. After you enter the centre through the front doors, stay to the right of the registration desk and follow the signs to the restaurant. Keep going toward the back (north side) of the building, there you will find another hallway. Our club room is down that hall (last one on the left).
The other Speed Skating clubs and the Provincial team will also be using the Oval, so there will be a lot more skaters at the centre and out on the ice.
When the temperature drops below -30, we will be doing dryland training. On those days bring your gym gear and a yoga mat or beach towel. Don’t forget to bring your water bottle.
