Do you feel the need for speed? If you do, then grab yourself a place on the Ice Skating Association of Ireland (ISAI) Speed Skating Camp which will be held at Ice Skating Blanchardstown in Dublin from 29 December 2014 till 2 January 2015.
This will be the first time ever that the exciting discipline of speed skating makes an appearance at an ice rink in Ireland. The top skaters can reach speeds of over 60km/h and burn up to 230 calories for every ten minutes they are on the ice.
The history of the sport actually dates back over a thousand years and has its roots in Scandinavia, Northern Europe and the Netherlands. Speed skating is a competitive form of ice skating where skaters race against each other over certain set distances. It has been part of every single edition of the Winter Olympics.
The camp at Ice Skating Blanchardstown will be run on private ice sessions and divided according to age and ability. Internationally accredited coaches will be on hand to provide instruction and all the necessary equipment to participate will be provided.
The total cost for the camp is €100 which includes five 45 minutes sessions on ice and three sessions of dry land training.
