DC-ICE skaters practice speedskating in the summer at Fort Dupont Ice Arena (FDIA) and on inline skates at the Anacostia Skating Pavilion. Skaters interested in racing can represent DC-ICE at local, regional and national short-track speed skating and inline speedskating competitions. Recreational & Fitness skaters practice regularly at local outdoor ice rinks and on local trails throughout the city.

Managed by three-time Olympic speed skater Nathaniel Mills, who co-founded DC-ICE in 2002, and coached by DC native Suliman Abdullah (USS Level 1), the DC-ICE Speedskating Club is rooted in the universal principles of Olympism: Joy in Effort, Respect, Fair Play, Friendship, Unity.

Honorary DC-ICE Members include: Shani Davis, the pioneering Olympic Champion who inspired the club's creation,' Maame Biney, a 2018 Olympian who got her competitive start at DC-ICE's annual DC Open Meet; and Conor McDermott-Mostowy, a 2022 Olympic Hopeful.
