Available on iTunes for iPhone, iPod and iPad, Live+ is an app that will let you watch all World Cup events for this year.  Watch and learn from the world’s best speed skaters.  For some of the events, depending on the media rights, you can even watch events live.  Regardless, all World Cups should be archived by event (heats and finals).

Need Skate Sharpening?

If you require some skate sharpening for your son or daughter’s speed skate blades, our SSIII’s can help you out.  For just $7, you can have one of these athletes do your work for you!

*If blades are in poor condition, fee may be higher as sharpening can take up to an hour to complete.

Please keep up with sharpening blades- every 3-4 practices to maintain good blade condition. Once skaters practice outside, skates will potentially have to be sharpened every 1-2 practices.
