Founded in 1938, GESS has a proud tradition of introducing skaters from ages  4 to 70+ to the sport of speedskating.  Whether your goal is fun, fitness or pursuing an Olympic gold, GESS is the place to start! New skaters are invited to watch, try our introductory program, sign up for our Learn To Speedskate or join the club with advanced skaters.  GESS is a member of the Amateur Skating Association of Illinois (ASAI) and US Speedskating with certified level coaches of up to 3.  The team draws members from Chicago to Dekalb and Long Grove to Joliet. So come on out and see what speedskating is all about.


GESS will strive to focus on the fun aspect of recreational competition and learning, with all the while that speed skating for something bigger and better...that each stride, pass, and finish, we are skating for a cause.
