Additional Speed Skating Information

Stay Safe

Regular physical activity is vital for good physical, social and emotional health. While there is a risk of injury with any type of physical activity, the benefits of staying active far outweigh the risks.

You can reduce your risk of exercise injury by:

  • wearing the right shoes
  • using the correct equipment
  • drinking water and staying hydrated
  • warming up and stretching properly
  • being aware of your surroundings – always exercise and compete in a safe and level area clear of any obstacles or items
  • maintaining social distancing rules when necessary (stay at least six feet away from others)

Stop exercising and seek medical help if you experience symptoms such as:

  • discomfort or pain
  • chest pain or other pain that could indicate a heart attack, including pain in the neck and jaw, pain traveling down the arm, or pain between the shoulder blades
  • shortness of breath
  • a rapid or irregular heartbeat
Participation Information

Athletes may compete in two events that are consecutive in distance, e.g., the 100M race and
300M race.

General Guidelines

• Kneepads, shin guards, a neck protector, gloves, and helmets are required.
• Lunch will be served on a 4:1 athlete to coach ratio at Winter Games.
