Speed Skating for Every Kid In Anchorage!

Did you know….

Anchorage has one of only 6 Olympic standard speed skating ovals in the country?

Located in Midtown Anchorage, just across Cuddy Park from the main (Loussac) branch of the Anchorage Public Library,  the Cuddy Family  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 generous support of our donors, we have a fleet of excellent Bont speed skates available 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 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 – we’ll do our best to accommodate every child!

Our 2018-19 programs begin at the Oval in Cuddy Family Midtown Park on November 26! The dates for the three programs are: 

Program 1: November 26 – December 19  (Mondays and Wednesdays) 6- 7 p.m. at Cuddy Family Park Oval.
