High Performance Camps

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.

The Top Blade Long Track and Top Blade Short Track camps have been revised this year and are being renamed with a fresh new take and immersion in to the Elite Oval Athlete Pathway Program.

The “Top Blade” level athletes still have the opportunity to train at the Olympic Oval but in a much more immersed approach, aligning with the Elite Oval Athlete Pathway Program.

The newly named “Summer Drop-In Program” will now have different weeks to choose from. The athletes who meet the “Summer Drop- In Time Standards” (which are different than the Stage 2 time standards) will be immersed in to the Stage 2 groups that are currently training full time in our Pathway.

The time standards for these particular Summer Drop-In weeks are the same time standards that we’ve had in the past for Top Blade, as we are promoting this towards the same level of athletes.  The cost for a week of Summer Drop-In is down dramatically compared to the Top Blade Camp cost in the past, with the understanding that this is NOT a full day camp anymore, and athletes need to manage themselves between the different training sessions each day.

To apply for this “Summer Drop-In Program” please contact the Oval Program Coordinator at or by phone at 403 220-4396.
