2016 Masters Long Track Speed Skating Camp
I participated in Derek Parra’s Masters Camp a few years ago and it was a great experience. Parra, and his fellow instructors, are not only knowledgeable but able to present information in a manner that the average masters skater can comprehend and utilize. The camp featured dry land training, on ice and class room instruction, race/training preparation and strategies, video analysis of your technique, story telling of Olympic glory, sharpening/radius education, and a metric time trial on the Olympic ice. I would highly recommend the camp to skaters of all skill levels.
Ability Level Novice thru AdvancedAge 30 yrs +
