From beginners to elite, our coaches can train you to recreationally or competitively speedskate. Gateway Speedskating Club was formed over 50 years ago, and has been training at the Kirkwood Ice Rink since the beginning. Speedskating builds self-confidence and discipline for people at various fitness levels. Ever wonder where the Olympic speed skaters come from? Clubs like Gateway!
Speedskating 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 speedskating 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. See our Programs tab for more information.
Our on-ice club season runs from September to March. Flexible practice times throughout the week are offered. Summer off-ice dryland runs from June- August. For details about membership options, please see the Join Today tab.

The Gateway Speedskating Club is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has been instructing and promoting the sport of speedskating to children and adults since 1963. We are also an affiliate of US Speedskating, the governing body of speedskating and Olympic Team development in the United States.
