High Performance Camps

Experience the elite training environment of the Olympic Oval!

Each year, the Olympic Oval holds a number of camps geared to young up-and-coming elite athletes and older high performance skaters looking to improve their skills. Summer Speed and Masters Speed are for the skaters who want to develop a better understanding of speed skating technique and training.

Please note:

Due to an unexpected mechanical failure the Oval has shut down all ice surfaces for the 17-18 season. We apologize for the inconvenience but we anticipate ice-in for the 18-19 season to remain on schedule for July. As with many construction projects there are potential delays and as such we would advise any of our summer programs participants to ensure that you have appropriate travel cancellation insurance. Summer Camp & Drop In coordinators will continue to keep you as informed and up to date as possible.
