December 10th has been recognized as Canada 150 Skate Day
We are at home on the ice so let’s lace up together to enjoy our favourite winter activity and to celebrate the completion of the Canada 150 year.
Whether in an arena or on a backyard rink, pond, canal or river, skating is tightly woven into the social fabric of Canada and part of who we are.
Canada 150 Skate Day will be one of the final events in the year-long marking Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation and we want our members to be a part of it.
We invite our members and their friends and family to join the skating party! You do not need to register to attend this member event.
Members will also have the opportunity to sign up for a complimentary 15-minute skating lesson with our coaches during this event.
Save the date: Sunday, December 10th 1:45-3:15 pm
Watch for more details to come!
DID YOU KNOW?
Many parents make the mistake of taking their children out of a regular skating program once they have the abilities to move on to hockey.
Hockey programs excel in teaching you stick and puck handling and teaching you hockey skills but they are not certified skating coaches.
Then as children go through hockey and they are around 8-9 years old parents realize that their child really needs to really improve the skating aspect of their game to be at a similar level to other kids.
Keep your child in their regular skating lessons while they play hockey so they don't have to catch up later!
GENERAL SKATE & GENERAL HOCKEY
Reminder that now that we are back to fall General Skate and General Hockey are scheduled most Saturdays and Sundays on the ice.
Always watch the schedule as it is subject to change due to special events.
During your visit to use the ice just a couple reminders- there are absolutely no sticks and pucks allowed on the ice during our General Skate Time this is a time for recreational skating and please remember that General Hockey is a time to enjoy the ice and come out for a recreational skate with friends and family where you can bring sticks and pucks on at that time to practice sticks handling, shooting etc. but there is no pick-up hockey allowed during these times.
Please respect these rules and the other members sharing the ice with you.
