The winter season is the season where ELS is at its best. There are skates from the association- and dryland training for all levels.

The training courses are listed in the ELS agenda.

THE AGENDAMail the training commissioner


Droogtraining (bootcamp) is the only training throughout the year. This is a skate specific training full of jumps, running, squats and exercises with elastic bands. With this you immediately work on your strength, technique and condition at the same time! Put on your running shoes and bring a water bottle and towel!

Short track

Short track is ideally suited for learning to ride fast corners and is therefore a good training for long track speed skating. Also for (maybe even right before) the novice skater. There are no short track training courses offered from ELS, you can go short track on your own.
