Syracuse Speedskating welcomes skaters of all ages and all ability levels.
Syracuse Speedskating holds two sessions to meet the needs of skaters at various ages and abilities.
Getting Started: The first session offers new skaters an opportunity to try speed skating at no charge. New skaters will be provided skates for two practices and be guided on-ice by nationally certified coaches and trainers. No specialized equipment is required for these sessions. Skaters are required to bring a helmet (bicycle), knee pads, neck guard and gloves (any). Long pants and long sleeves must be worn to cover any exposed skin. (Optional but recommended equipment: eye protection, elbow guards, shin guards and ankle protection)
Location: Due to COVID-19 practices will be held at Meachem Ice Rink. (Syracuse Valley Area) 121 West Seneca Turnpike, Syracuse, NY 13205. Click Here For Directions
The First Session:
First session focuses on the basics and provides both beginning and experienced skaters, age 12 and under, the skills they will need to progress in the sport. Coaches focus on proper skating position and technique in a fun and encouraging environment. Youth skaters compete as their skills and confidence improves.
The Second Session:
Second Session is for skaters over the age of 12 and, on occasion, younger skaters who have met criteria in ability, speed and “coachability.” Older beginning skaters will receive small group instruction while experienced skaters take part in intensive training designed for competitive success. Skaters focus on leg strength, endurance, form and starts.
