Welcome Information

Welcome back to the Olympic Oval for the 2021-2022 season! The building is once again full of athletes and energy as we get closer to the Olympic Games in Beijing!

Welcome from the Director, Peter McCrory

Dear Athletes,

On behalf of the Olympic Oval team at the University of Calgary, I would like to warmly welcome you, and thank you, for making the Fastest Ice in the World your training destination.

I know you must be excited to be arriving in Calgary, especially as our sport enters the Olympic season! The whole Olympic Oval team shares your excitement, and we are highly committed to providing you with truly world-class ice and dryland conditions, that allow you to make the best possible preparation for your next competition.

We are also very proud to be supporting the development of the next generation of champions in both long- and short-track speed skating here in the city of Calgary. The current pandemic has constrained all our global travel arrangements, so we are thrilled to see you make the trip to the Olympic Oval. We hope you have a world class experience for the duration of your training here, and should you have any questions, inquiries or suggestions please do not hesitate to contact a member of our staff.

It should be noted that we are currently accepting bookings for training throughout the 2021-22 season. For more information, please contact Olympic Oval Guest Relations at ovalguestservices@ucalgary.ca or 403.220.7954 or visit us at oval.ucalgary.ca.

Take care and good luck to you in the 2021-22 season!
