The Bay State Speedskating Club (BSSC) is a nonprofit member club of NSA, responsible for the training in the Boston area. We sponsor training sessions, learning clinics, and races. As a group, we support and encourage people of all ages and skill levels.
The Bay State Speedskating Club conducts regular short-track ice speedskating sessions throughout the year, primarily at the Rodman Arena, an Olympic-sized rink in Walpole, MA. Our regular ice season runs from September thru the end of April. See our Fall/Winter schedule for more details.
During the summer months we have weekly ice and dryland training sessions. Dryland workouts are designed to enhance balance skills, agility and endurance. Weekly dryland sessions take place at Prospect Hill in Waltham and at Blue Hills in Milton, as well as inline skating practices and leisurely biking runs. The mix of summer programs and training schedules vary and will be posted during the summer.
Our BSSC coaching staff includes former Olympians, National Champions and World Team members. BSSC accommodates skaters at all levels from kids to grandparents, from first-timers to old-timers, from novices and non-competitors to world team members. Our youngest registered competitor for the 1995-96 season was born in 1988, while our oldest registrant was born in 1909.
