Special Olympics Maine is offering a Speed Skating training day for coaches and athletes on Monday January 23, 2023 at Sawyer Arena in Bangor from 9-11:30am. This will be a fun day for athletes to develop their on-ice skills and provide coaches an opportunity to work towards their sport certifications in Speed Skating!
All participants are required to where a helmet on-ice. Bike helmets are acceptable and additional helmets will be on site for those that do not have their own. Gloves (thin winter gloves) and active wear that will keep you warm on-ice are also recommended (baggy clothes and cotton not recommended). There will be a 1.5-2 hour session on the ice on skates that all participants will be required to be active in. All participants must already know how to skate to participate (this is not a learn to skate opportunity).
