Speed skating is a great life long sport that combines low impact physical activity and fresh winter air. The goals of this group are to provide an environment that builds camaraderie for speed skaters who are new to the sport, skate for fun and fitness, and provide information on where to obtain coaching in order to grow in skills. This is not a club but rather a group of skaters who skate together, support each other and promote the sport in the Twin Cities.
