SPEEDY CUP

Get kids excited about ice sports
Speedy Cup qualifications for primary school classes take place at various locations in Switzerland. A team of trained ice sports instructors will accompany the children on the ice. Various courses with elements from the sports of figure skating, ice hockey and speed are completed and the children are trained in the basics of ice sports in a playful way. At the speed station, each child can skate a timed lap and automatically takes part in the qualification for the final.

«Gliding», the basis of all ice sports
Figure skating, ice hockey and the speed disciplines have something very important in common: the basis and basic type of movement is gliding on ice. With the Speedy Cup we want to bring gliding into physical education.
