WHAT TO BRING

This is a list of what you’ll need for a better experience skating with TISC:

  • Helmet (mandatory) that fits properly and has not made contact with the ground and is not damaged during a fall
  • Skates (all types of skates are suitable)
  • Wrist guards or palm protection (mandatory)
  • Water bottle (filled with water)

WHO SHOULD SKATE

If you can start rolling, stop safely, turn in both directions, skate on a variety of terrain (up hill, downhill, rough asphalt, over curbs, hop over small obstacles), and you’re stable on your skates, then TISC is the right place for you to improve your fitness, technique, group skills, and race strategies.

PROGRAMMING AND HOW PRACTICE WILL BE DELIVERED

You can expect the 2021 TISC programming and activities to be deeply influenced by COVID-19 prevention measures and health and safety considerations. This means a lot of activities offered at TISC will be individual and technical drills. Pacing, timed, and pursuit activities will also be used. There will also be agility-based activates offered.

There will be minimal drafting (skating close behind another skater) and no relays until it has been made clear through health regulations, health and safety considerations, facility owners and operators (the City of Toronto), and other regulatory bodies and authorities that these can safely and legally take place.
