It has been proven that a multidisciplinary approach ensures a faster and better development for athletes. Road to Ice is one of the current programs which introduces inline skaters to the long track and short track skating disciplines. Under the guidance of experienced multidisciplinary coaches, you will receive a unique opportunity to train and improve your technique on the ice.
Thialf Academy also offers extensive training programs that can help you to develop into an experienced skater over a longer period of time. You can undertake various training programs such as cycling, slide board, sprinting, weight and cable training. The programs are designed specifically for the individuals needs but are performed under group participation, you are therefore not only improving yourself, but you are ensuring you challenge one another to get better every day.
Inline professionals have a good chance of achieving high results on the ice, provided they receive accurate technical training. We have experienced inline skaters at world level that had no speed skating history, but within a few months had Olympic perspectives as a professional speed skater. Inline skating and long track speed skating do not get in each other’s way. In fact, both disciplines complement each other perfectly. A good skater, in our opinion, controls the techniques of long distance skating, short track and inline skating.
The philosophy of the Thialf Academy is to take care of everything. Through our local network we offer a very competitive rate. We arrange the accommodation and create a program for individuals and groups from A to Z. Request a quotation without obligation and we provide tailor-made solutions.
Thialf cares about the future of international skating. The Thialf Academy is an initiative of Thialf and several local partners.
