                       Grow Inline Speed Website

The most recent growth in the GIS web site has been in skater training and development. GIS believes that a key to growing our sport is growing individual skaters, making them better, and helping them to enjoy skating more. Such skaters are the ones who will stay with skating, and will bring their friends into skating.

Drills make training effective and enjoyable.  Well, maybe not fun, but at least they give you something to think about, other than pain and exhaustion.  Skaters enjoy variety, and learn more with a variety of drills. Click here.

The drills listed are just a start. Email us a description of the drills you love (and the ones you hate, they're even better) so we can share them with the speedskating community. If you send us a video file, we'll try to use that, or we can make one.
