Skating fast since 1955

Welcome to the Dawson Creek Speed Skating Club! A place where you can go fast and not get a speed skating ticket. We are a recreational and competitive speed skating club that offers learn-to-skate programs for all ages and abilities for long track and short track! Our season runs from September to March and we offer programs for anyone aged 3 and up. 

Our certified coaches promote the development of skating fundamentals and athlete development following the Long Term Participant and Athlete Development Model. All DCSSC members are part of the BC Speed Skating Association and Speed Skating Canada. Make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram and keep in the loop.
