Speed Skating for Every Kid In Anchorage!

Did you know that Anchorage has one of only 6 Olympic standard speed skating ovals in the United States?

It’s even in the center of the city!

The Cuddy Family Midtown Park Speed Skating Oval is open from late November to early March (subject to weather), is fully lit every evening, and hosts our children’s Speed Skating Program.

Through the generosity of our donors, we have a fleet of excellent Bont speed skates for kids to use during our programs, as well as helmets (if they don’t have one of their own).  Our programs are low cost, kid focused, and led by 2010 Winter Olympic speed skating coach John Monroe.

You can sign up online at the  link below, or print and fill out the paper form linked below and return it to us prior to the beginning of the programs.  And as a parent, you’re more than welcome to come out and get some skating in while your child is in the class!


Please note that space is limited – but we’ll do our best to accommodate every child!

Our 2017-18 programs begin at the Oval in Cuddy Family Midtown Park on November 27! The dates for programs are: 

Program 2: January 8 – January 31 (Mondays and Wednesdays) 6-7 p.m. at Cuddy Family Park Oval.

Program 3: February 5 – February 28 (Mondays and Wednesdays) 6-7 p.m. at Cuddy Family Park Oval.

Cost of each 4 week program is $150.00 and includes the use of speed skates and helmets during the sessions.  A family rate for 3 or more children is available – please contact us!  Update!  We have added a 1/2 program option for families or children who are only able to attend once a week!  Click on the online registration link below to get started!
