Success Story



Skatetown Speed


Skatetown USA, a one-year-old rink in West Chester Ohio (just north of Cincinnati), is forming a new inline speed skating team. Skatetown Speed will be coached by Bill “Lucky” Stehlin, a former national level skater, and skating teacher and coach of several years. Lucky will be using training techniques and drills developed by national level coaches, which are applicable for beginning through advanced skaters. Skatetown Speed has already recruited several skaters, from beginners through national level skaters, and from ages of six through sixty.

Skatetown Speed welcomes new skaters, from beginners and recreational skaters through advanced skaters, to round out it’s team. If you are interested in learning how to skate faster, using proper technique and training drills, then Skatetown Speed might be for you. Not only will you learn how to skate faster with proper technique, you will also learn how to skate in a pack and skate in relays with other team members. We also welcome skaters from other speed teams to practice with us and learn new drills or just get more floor time.

Skatetown Speed will have its first official practice of the season on Thursday 23 September from 4 to 6 PM. Skatetown Speed currently will hold practice every Thursday from 4 to 6 PM and every Sunday from 9 AM to Noon at Skatetown USA.
