Looking for inspiration for a way to achieve your New Year’s resolutions? The Fort St John Elks Speed Skating Club is offering an adult skating program that is targeted to beginning level skaters as an introduction to the sport. This will include two coached sessions per week, with additional ice time as available. We are focused on developing a community of adult speed skaters in a positive and low cost environment. The program will run from January 14 until the third week in March. Skating times will be Monday and Wednesday evenings from 8-9pm (coached) and Saturdays 10-11am (as available – no coach). The cost of the program is $250 and includes skate rental (first come, first served) and purchase of ankle protection (required safety gear). Click the following link to fill out the sign-up form:
