Learn to Speed Skate Programs

Skaters in this program must be able to skate (unassisted around a hockey rink). 

This is a Learn to Speed Skate program that integrates young skaters who are new to Speed Skating into our youngest speed skating group. Skaters in this program will skate with Group 1 once a week on Tuesdays or Thursdays from October through December (on-ice time: 5:45pm). Skaters in this category are also eligible to attend Meets. A great first meet for new skaters is our Red Deer Short Track Meet in November! New, Introductory, skaters can also choose 2 Nights a Week! 


New for 2021-2022: All new Skaters will receive a complimentary Safety Starter Package including a helmet!

For skaters who wish to skate 1 or 2 Nights a Week as a recreational or competitive skater. Advanced Competitive Skaters may (in some seasons) have the option of skating 3 Nights a week. Higher-level skaters who qualify for CanWest or CYLT will be upgraded, upon qualification, to Provincial/Territorial Athletes and invoiced for the fee difference. 


All Club Athletes are encouraged to participate in our Club's Meets in November (Short Track) and January (Long Track) as well as in any Speed Skating Alberta sanctioned local meets (e.g. Rocky Mountain House, Edmonton, Calgary) as a fun, learning experience for kids of all ages.

Higher-level athletes may need to purchase additional equipment. For higher-level athletes skating 2 or 3 nights a week who own their skates, there is a "no skates" program option in the online registration system.


Families can register online for the full season (Oct-Mar) or for a half-season. Speed Skating Alberta and Speed Skating Canada Category fees are paid in full and Club Fees/Skate Rentals are divided in half for Fall/Winter registrations.
