Skate with Olympians this Summer!
Connecticut Speedskating is hosting a camp featuring two olympians, Kristen Santos and Julie Letai. Kristen learned to speedskate right here at the Rinks! The camp is June 24-25 and features 6 hours of ice time and additional off ice dryland instruction. This is open to those interested in trying speedskating and to those looking to improve their speed and power for Hockey and Figure skating. A limited number of club speedskates are available to borrow. No speedskating experience required, however, those interested in the camp can also contact
to inquire about spring ice sessions.
