Learn to speed skate? Yes you can! Check out Gateway Speedskating at our home in the Kirkwood Rec Center Rink.

From beginners to elite, our coaches can train you to competitively speed skate.  Gateway Speed Skating Club was formed over 50 years ago, and has been training at the Kirkwood Ice Rink  since the beginning. Speed skating builds self-confidence and discipline for people at various fitness levels.  Ever wonder where the Olympic speed skaters come from? Clubs like Gateway!

Speed skating is a fantastic all-family sport. Our skaters begin at age 4 and stay on the ice all the way into their 70s.  Families love speed skating because everyone skates at the same time regardless of skill level. Our fabulous volunteer coaches teach new members to skate and enable experienced skaters to compete at a National Level.


The Gateway Speedskating Club is a 501c3 non profit organization that has been instructing and promoting the sport of speedskating to children and adults since 1963. Gateway is a member of the Missouri Speedskating Association (MSA). We are also an affiliate of US Speedskating, the governing body of speedskating and Olympic Team development in the United States.
