The Coeur d'Alene Inline Speed Team has been skating at Skate Plaza for over ten years, offering year round training in both indoor and outdoor disciplines.
Our team ranges from age 5 to 60 and we have room to grow! Many opportunities exist to compete in the area, and we have traveled to many different states to race. We have several skaters on our team who are National Champions and National Record Holders and we would love to have more.
Joe LeGault, 2011 NW Region Coach of the Year, has been the head speed skating coach for the last 7 years and has been involved with speed skating along with competing at the National level since 1973. Joe is a Team USA World Coach, Certified National Coach for Indoor and Outdoor Bank Track by USA Roller Sports and can pre-qualify skaters for Outdoor Nationals.

The sport of speed skating is a discipline demanding a blend of quickness, stamina, and strategy. It's fun, exciting, healthful, social, and rewarding.
Competitive speed skating is a non-contact sport, requiring skaters to display their skills to maneuver cleanly through the pack and into winning position. Skaters are disqualified for pushing, blocking, forcing another racer out of position, or using their arms, legs, or hands in any way that impedes the progress of other competitors. Skaters learn the importance of teamwork, of being persistent and organized, and of setting and reaching goals and learning to value good sportsmanship.
