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.
New on the Net
Hi everyone, after 11 years as a skater, 2 years as a board member, and 7 years as your Executive Director it is with a bit of sadness that I inform you that I will be moving onto a new job effective Feb. 10, 2014. It has been a privilege and a honour to have been able to work alongside you over the years. Speed Skating is such a great sport and the athletes and volunteers in Saskatchewan are a great reason why.
