Learn to speed skate at your local Kitsilano Rink—just a 10 min walk from school!
The Vancouver Velocity Speed Skating Club (VSSC) invites kids 5+ with basic skating ability* to sign up for the 2022/2023 speed skating season. Girls are especially encouraged to join! It’s a super fun and very welcoming place to learn how to go fast on the ice. A Tennyson student in grade 6 is already involved.
As a special offer to local schools, VSSC is offering a $15 discount for beginners signing up for the part-time schedule only (2x a week, Fri dryland/Sun skating) with the code "SCHOOL2022" until Sept 30, 2022. Beginners can also upgrade to skate full time if desired (3x a week, Fri dryland/Wed & Sun skating). Speed skate rentals are included with registrations, and a few other pieces of mandatory equipment are needed.
VSSC is an inclusive organization that has been serving the community for over 42 years, and we are proud to have the second largest Special Olympics membership in BC. In 2020, the club's Special Olympics liaison June Lum won a Community Sport Champion award from the City of Vancouver. Check out the video here!
