Peninsula Speed Skating Club is an all-ages, all-abilities family oriented club with both competitive and recre- ational members. Our season runs from September to March and we welcome new members at any time. Practices are held Monday and Wednesday evenings at Panorama Recreation Centre.
We'd love to have you come out and try speed skating. You will need a helmet (bike or hockey) and gloves. You will also want shin pads, knee pads, and a neck guard, though you can borrow those if you are just trying it out. We have club speed skates, but bring a pair of skates if you have them in case your size isn't available. Contact us for further details.
Our club coaches have tremendous experience and knowledge in the sport of speed skating, and our club skaters young and old benefit immensely from this.
