Welcome to the home of Saskatchewan Speed Skating!
Saskatchewan Speed Skating Association is dedicated to creating an environment for the development, promotion and organization of recreational and competitive speed skating.
We are a community of skaters, coaches, volunteers and officials who believe speed skating is an affordable sport that promotes a healthy and active lifestyle.
Our speed skating clubs are located in seven communities: Regina, Saskatoon, Moose Jaw, Prince Albert, Melville, Nipawin and Humboldt. But we are always looking for opportunities to introduce the sport to other communities or establish new clubs where there is interest.
Speed skating encourages individuals to achieve their personal best through full participation. There are no bench-sitters in this sport - just a lot of fun and excitement.
Speed skating also provides an opportunity for athletes of all ages to grow and develop to compete on the national and world stage. World-class speed skaters, such as two-time Olympic gold medalist Catriona LeMay-Doan, silver medalist Justin Warsylewicz and Jason Parker, and national team members Lucas Makowsky, and Kali Christ all grew out of Saskatchewan speed skating clubs. In the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, Lucas Makowsky took home a gold medal as part of Canada's Pursuit Team.
So we encourage you to explore our web site, learn more about the sport and contact a speed skating club in your community.

Respect in Sport
Saskatchewan Speed Skating is committed to creating a sport environment in which all individuals are treated with respect and dignity. Coaches have a responsibility to create a sporting environment that is free of harassment, abuse, bullying and neglect. SASSA requires that all coaches participating in speed skating in Saskatchewan have completed the online Respect in Sport (RiS) certification (or equivalency), as required by Sask Sport Inc. by the September 1, 2014 deadline.
