Elite Speed alumnus Taylor Wentz skates the Am Cup circuit and trains in Salt Lake City UT. Taylor won all races in her division of the 2013 Age Group Nationals.
Speed skating at it's basic level is going fast on skates, it is one of the simplest forms of athletics and the basics relatively easy to learn. If you like to skate, if you have outgrown figure skating, under grown hockey or decided that you still love skating but these sports are not for you, or you just think it is cool and don't know how to skate, you should give speed skating a try.
We are a non-profit organization and our program has been an official US Speedskating member since Oct. 2010. We compete at meets throughout the mid-west including Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Michigan.
