FAQ

How do I join the Central Wisconsin Speed Skating Club?
Just come to one of the practices on Sunday. Come a little before the 6:00pm start time so you can be fitted for skates. Join us at any two Sunday practices from 6:00pm to 7:30pm for FREE! Most of the time new skaters are on the ice for about 30 minutes. The coaches will decide how long first time skaters will stay on the ice.
