WHAT IS THE CLUB ABOUT?
Inline & Roller speed skating. Our mandate includes teaching how to roller and inline speed skate properly, improving fitness, racing & tactics, and providing a safe and fun atmosphere for skating.
The sport of roller & inline speed skating is similar to short track speed skating. Athletes skate and race on a 100-meter track with symmetrical corners. Outdoor roller & inline speed skating is tactically similar to bicycle racing where athletes skate in larger groups (packs or peletons) on longer tracks like 400-meter running tracks and open-road courses that can include hills (up & down), turns (left & right) and can be on a closed loop or point-to-point.
