Kiwi Speed

If your child has a need for speed than why not enrol them in our Kiwi Speed programme. These sessions are run by competitive skaters who are members of the local sped club and they will be able to help your child get their speed fix! Speed skating is the only skating sport that NZ has competed in at the Winter Olympic Games so if your child has big dreams we may be able to help.

The Programme

The program is designed to get them started with the basic movement and techniques. The children begin in our regular skates until they are comfortable moving about before progressing to the specialised speed skates. In order to gain maximum speed it is important to master the basic techniques and our Kiwi Speed programme covers this and will guide them to moving in to club practices in no time!


Kiwi Speed is run as part of our Monday Kiwi Skate class from 4pm-4.50pm

How to Enrol

Just like speed skating enrolment is quick! You can either download a copy of our enrolment form here, fill it out and email it back to us; phone us on (03) 456 4556; or if you are not sure if it is for your child, they can come and try it out for free and you can enrol them on the day if they catch the speed bug!


The cost per term varies with how many weeks are in the school term. Lessons cost $8 per session with the term to be paid up front on the first day.
