We are very proud of our very own MAX BRANT for making the Ontario Long Track Speed Skating Team for the Canada Winter Games!!! The 2019 Canada Winter Games were held in Red Deer Alberta Feb 14-23rd, 2019. Max placed 9th overall and brought home a bronze medal from the team pursuit. He skated at an outdoor oval in Red Deer with temperatures in the -20s.

Kudos to his Ontario team mates: Matt, Gibson and Noah.

Speed Skating is a exciting and fast sport done on regular sized ice rink in an arena.

Speed skating can be done at any age and at any ability.

Racing quickly becomes a key component of speed skating. Throughout the season there are opportunities to race at regional series events and with increased skill and times, skaters may advance to provincial series events.

Speed skating can be for those looking for a fun recreational sport, cross training or fitness. It can enhance hockey and figure skating skills.

Members skate on Speed Skates with blades ranging from 35-45cm in length. The club has many speed skating skates of varying sizes for rent. Skaters may eventually choose to purchase their own skates.

The Niagara Speed Skating coaches are certified NCCP Speed Skating Coaches.

Niagara Speed Skating Club is a proud affiliate of the Ontario Speed Skating Association.
