Back to Ice Sports

Everyone remembers the moment that Australian winter olympic gold medallist Steven Bradbury crossed the line to take gold at the 2002 winter olympics and become our first ever gold medallist at any winter event. If you've ever been dreaming of taking to the ice and flying around the circuit at top speed, then our speed skating sessions at Xtreme Ice Arena are just for you.

Xtreme Ice Arena is the home of the Western Flames Ice Racing Club which has been running for many years now, although only recently became active again after a long hiatus. We are very proud of being the home of speed skating in Western Australia

The Western Flames Ice Racing Club is very keen to see as many people involved in short track speed skating as possible. We skate each Sunday morning at Xtreme Ice Arena and our members range from 7 years old to 50 years young, from complete beginners to international level athletes.
