Skating Groups

Learn more about our skating groups. 

Milton Speed Skating Club accepts members who:

  • Are at least 5 years old as of July 1 preceding the skating season.
  • Have basic skating skills and are able to navigate one (100m) lap of the ice under their own power in about 35 seconds; or, have completed Pre-CanSkate level 6 or CanSkate level 1.

MSSC divides skaters into teams. Practices, on-ice groupings and skate times are based upon these teams.  The teams are based on a set of criteria determined by the coaches and reviewed by the club executive prior to the beginning of the season.  Using the LTPAD model as a guideline, criteria such as, but not limited to: skating skills, size of skater, size of groups, and age of skater are used to create the skater teams.

As skaters develop during the course of the season, the coaches will continue to evaluate and move skaters, group sizes permitting.
