Home to the Canadian Olympic Long Track team during the Vancouver 2010 Games, the Richmond Olympic Oval is dedicated to continuing its Olympic legacy. Our world-class facility hosts a variety of speed skating programs for all ages and abilities.

Dedicated to providing speed skating programs for those who want to try it for the first time, those looking to develop their skill and those seeking to one day wear the maple leaf on the

international stage.

The High-Performance Speed Skating Program is designed to create a fun and focused training environment for Train to Train (T2T) and Learn to Compete (L2C) speed skaters between the ages of 12 and 18 years old.

Training will focus on building and optimizing aerobic capacity, racing strategy/tactic and other sport specific skills. Under the direction of Speed Skating Canada’s LTAPD model , our goal is to create a program that is developmentally appropriate for T2T and L2C age and physical ability.
