The Dawson Creek Speedskating club offers ice time three times a week on Tuesday(6:15-8:45pm) and Thursday nights (6:15-8:30pm), as well as Sunday afternoons (2:45-4:45pm). Speedskating Canada has a development program that is a good fit for every age group from 0-6 (Active Start), all the way up to Master Age (Active for Life), with everything type of age group and competitive level in between.
The full program runs from end of September until March, and once the weather gets cold enough, the outdoor Oval becomes free to use on a daily basis for Long Track practices.
Club members can participate in any way they feel comfortable, from simply attending practices and enjoying the time working on some fitness and basic skills, to heading out with other club members to Short Track and Long Track Meets around BC, Alberta (and more!) if you're interested in more competition.
Cost for the season is $350.00, plus an additional $80 for those wishing to rent skates from the club. We now have our new Club skin suits available for purchase or rent! Please contact Terry at the Arena before practice or send an email to get your rentals ahead of time.
