The Growing Sport

The last few weeks have seen many new skaters come down to Mirrabooka and try speed skating. Last week saw 13 skaters on the ice for training.

The Western Flames new protective corner padding should be completed and ready for use next Sunday (17th April) so we can start skating a bit harder with improved safety.

We will have some skaters in their brand new Bont skates for next Sunday as well, so we’ll start to work on bringing those times down.

The Chong family returned from their two week trip to Sydney where Mark trained under former Australian Olympic coach Maggie Holland, also impressing current National Coach Ann Zhang at one of the training sessions.

Hopefully in the next month we can get to mark our permanent track on the ice, and the planning has also started for some time trials over the next 6-weeks.

The WAISSA is still waiting for an official response from the AIR in regards to affiliation, but hopefully this will be accepted very shortly.

So, if you want to come and give the sport a try, send an email via the ‘contact’ button or call on the number listed.
Training is 8:45am on Sundays for beginner skaters. The first session is free, then $15 a session thereafter.
