Summer Camp

The 2024 Summer Camp is scheduled for August 21-25, 2024 in Yellowknife!!

Speed Skating NWT hosts a five-day camp for young athletes from across the NWT each summer. Summer Camp registration opens annually at the end of June.

Summer camp involves five days of on-ice development, dry-land training, classroom sessions, and team bonding activities under the supervision of expert guest coaches.

We are proud to provide one of the most cost-effective camps in the North. In 2022, the full five-day camp cost each skater between $75 and $85, depending on their experience and duration of on-ice time required.

The camp is split into two groups:

Group 1: ages 12 to 17 years, more experienced skaters who are likely to be competing in speed skating meets in southern Canada or considering the opportunity to do so.

Group 2: ages 9 to 13 years, less experienced skaters who are likely to be working on their next steps in the sport.
