Calgary Speed Skating Association
Whether it’s the speed, endurance and determination of a long track race. Or the speed, agility, strength, technique and strategy in a short track race. CSSA has programs at all levels – from the very young (ages 6+) to the young at heart (seniors/masters). Whether you’re starting with just learning how to skate, or are an elite-level competitive athlete vying for a position at the provincial or national level, CSSA has you covered.
All skaters are coached by a team of paid coaches, many of whom have been certified by the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) and are current or former high performance skaters themselves. The skaters at the Olympic Oval get to take advantage of The Fastest Ice in the World™, often training alongside Olympic champions and national team members from countries around the world. Skaters regularly compete at local and inter-club meets as well as at the highest levels in provincial, national and international competitions. Many former members of the club have moved on to Elite National Team Programs.
All of this, in a fun and safe environment, encouraging teamwork and the individual pursuit of being your best.
