International skating support for
competitors at the highest level.

What we
stand for

We are Team Novus, the international skating organization that stands for the new and innovative approach to strong communication and collaboration between countries, athletes and staff in the speed skating world.

By coming together and combining our strengths, we are able to create an optimal environment for our skaters, regardless of their background, location or national affiliation. We encourage our athletes to develop themselves as individuals, whilst making each other stronger mentally, physically and commercially so they can reach their full potential in skating and beyond.

We believe intrinsic motivation is the catalyst for our success on the ice and that winning comes from within. Using the latest technologies, training sessions are planned and biodata is monitored daily to ensure maximum performance for each individual: a performance training approach built for the now.

Our innovative, limitless and decentralised approach is what makes us proud to be Team Novus.
