In celebration of Canada 150 Skating Day on Sunday, December 10, Speed Skate P.E.I. is hosting a free ‘Try Speed Skating’ session from 4:00 to 6:00 pm that day at the Eastlink Centre in Charlottetown.
The Try it session is open to both recreational and prospective competitive skaters, ages 7 and up, including adults. Skaters are asked to bring a helmet, neck guard, gloves and their own skates. Those interested will be provided with speed skates (subject to size availability). Participants should arrive in time to allow for skate fitting and should use the Southeast entrance to the Eastlink Centre.
No registration is required. For more information, contact Speed Skate P.E.I. at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With the 2023 Canada Winter Games coming to the Island, Speed Skate PEI says that now is the ideal time for young athletes to try the sport.
This event is made possible in part with funding support from the Province of PEI.
