Due to the pandemic and state restrictions, participation may be limited. Masks are required when in the building.


GMSA offers Try Speedskating sessions at various rinks throughout the metro.

SIGN UP at: https://mnspeedskating.wufoo.com/forms/try-speedskating/

ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST BE ABLE TO SKATE UNASSISTED AND BE COMFORTABLE ON SKATES. Skaters would be best served by taking Learn to Skate lessons to master skating on the edges of the blades. Speed skating will be more enjoyable if those basics are acquired before trying speedskating.
