WINTER 2021 (January to March) Parent & Tot, CanSkate, & Adult CanSkate Schedules NOW posted below! Registration OPEN!

The Provincial restrictions announced on December 8, 2020 will result in a delay to the start of our Winter skating session!  At this time, we are not certain when we will be able to return to the ice, but registered skaters – please watch for updates into the New Year.  We will look at all options for our scheduled classes at that time, including whether class sessions can be extended to ensure that members get the time that they have registered for.
