Ice speed skating in Perth – break all the limits!
Short track speed skating, or ice racing, is an exhilarating sport, where skaters can reach speeds of up to 50km per hour! Skaters battle for position on the 111m track, rounding tight bends and passing each other to be first across the line, and sometimes be the last one standing!
Age and ability
Generally anybody 6 years or older is welcome to come and try ice racing, and beginners are welcome, as long as you have basic ice skating skills, and can start and stop safely.
If you aren’t a confident ice skater, we would recommend completing one term of our Learn to Skate program before trying speed skating.
The club has a large range of specialised speed skates for loan if you are just starting out. The only equipment you will need to begin with is:
- long pants
- long sleeves
Speed skating days and times
The club skates every Sunday morning from 7am, and welcomes new skaters to come and try it up to four times for free!
