WELCOME TO THE RICHMOND OLYMPIC OVAL
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. We are dedicated to providing a center that offers speed skating program for those who want to try it for the first time as well as those seeking to one day wear the maple leaf on the international stage.
The Richmond Rockets club is a short track speed skating club that runs practices at the Richmond Olympic Oval for beginner to intermediate level skaters. The Richmond Oval High Performance Program and The Richmond Rockets work in partnership to create a progressive development pathway for skaters from beginner to Junior High Performance and Master level skaters.
The Stage 2 Performance Camp is a high-performance training opportunity for top skaters who aspire to compete at the Canadian Junior Championships. Skater participation is based on commitment to improving competitive performance. The goal of the camp is to provide on and off ice guidance and instruction that will positively impact the athletes’ transition into provincial and national development team status.
Camp days will include dryland, strength & condition, ice sessions and integrated services sessions (nutrition, yoga and sports psychology) tailored to the specific age and ability range. On ice sessions will be held on short track ice.
