About our Programs

Speed skating is an excellent fitness activity for people of all ages. Depending on skaters’ interests and abilities, skaters can choose to skate for enjoyment or recreation, or they can attend competitions locally or at higher levels. An ideal family sport – everyone can skate!

The KW Sertoma Speed Skating Club tailors their ice programs to fully support the Long Term Participant and Athlete Development (LTPAD) Program, as outlined on the Speed Skate Canada website and based on the LTAD model on the Canadian Sport for Life website.

There are many stages within the LTPAD and various stages are covered in our 5 main training programs:


  • FUNdamentals
  • Learn to Train
  • Train to Train
  • Learn to Compete
  • Active for Life


In addition, we also offer a four lesson session called ‘Learn to Speed Skate’ as an introduction to the sport, and our annual FUNdamentals speed skating camp.
