BC Speed Skating Academy

Academy Overview

The BC Speed Skating Academy (“Academy”) is a BCSSA initiative to supplement the development of in-province, Stage 1 skaters on the Elite Athlete Pathway. Stage 1 skaters are typically T2T-aged skaters, training 300-400 hours per year (3-5 ice sessions per week during the skating season).
