Speed Skating Training
Continuing on Sunday 27th June 2021 our Short Track Speed Skating Training Sessions are open for ALL age groups and Categories...And We Welcome New Skaters!!
On Sunday 20th June we had another awesome training session this week in which we had a great turnout from our club members and visiting skaters. Spirits were high. We had three ability groups catering for all levels and abilities of skaters. The session, led by head coach Tom and supported by assistant coaches Steve Humber and Helen Kirby, consisted of solid endurance and strength training this week. It was a great session that allowed the athletes to focus on repetitive cadence and skating lines. The session, for the groups one and two consisted of almost 8km of skating of 2 mins of skating with 3mins rest for almost the whole hour.
........all with the aim to get that feeling of smooth and repetitive motion. Whilst the ice was a little soft it was a great session to develop both core strength and skating technique. Awesome session.
Our sessions for all ages, abilities and categories are open for either the Mohawks club or visiting clubs. We will continue to be on Sundays at 1800 on-ice. However please arrive NO LATER than 1730 to warm-up off-ice and also help with the protection barrier pads. We only have 60mins so it is vital we maximise the on-ice time, so please be prompt.
We also warmly (in a cold ice rink) welcome new skaters who wish to join this fantastic club.
However we request that you (or your guardian) follow a simple registration process so that we can control and manage the number of skaters wanting to train with us. Please register early each week as demand will be high. Please note that for MIRC club members you do NOT need to receive a formal acceptance once registered. Just register and turn up! Only visiting skaters will receive confirmation.
