FAMILY SKATE SATURDAY DEC 12, 2015
posted Dec 9, 2015, 12:51 PM
We are happy to once again welcome the family members of our Fall skaters to join us in our Family Skate immediately following the Mini Olympics. Please note the following:
• ALL GUEST CHILDREN and ALL GUEST ADULTS need to wear CSA approved hockey helmets regardless of skating ability,
• NO hockey sticks, skate assist frames, strollers, etc. are allowed on the ice,
• Our registered member skaters must continue to follow the Skate Canada Helmet policy which states that all skaters up to and including those in CanSkate Level 5 must wear a CSA Approved hockey helmet on the ice,
• We must ensure no more than 90 participants are on the ice at one time
• We must record the names/contact info of participants
We understand this may seem extreme but we are required to follow the rules of Skate Canada in order to retain our status as a club in good standing. Unfortunately we cannot allow any family members on the ice without a helmet. Ask friends or neighbours if they have a CSA approved hockey helmet available to borrow.
The Potluck will take place from 6:30-8pm and we look forward to seeing many of you in the Nixon room before or after your skating adventures. Pizza will be provided by the club, please bring a dish to share (remember to take your dish home with you or leave your contact info on the bottom so we can return it to you).

WINTER CANSKATE ASSESSMENTS
posted Dec 7, 2015, 3:18 PM
Welcome to all our new and returning CanSkate families. The Fall CanSkate sessions are winding down and we are already busy planning for the winter sessions beginning Saturday January 9. Some sessions already have a waitlist and others are close to capactiy. In order to make the first week as easy as possible for skaters, families and coaches, we will once again offer assessments to all skaters new to WTSC who have the ability to skate forwards.
This allows us to evaluate skaters and determine if they have the skills to enter our CanSkate, PowerSkate or Pre-STARSkate programs. If your child is brand new to skating and/or is still "shuffling along" there is no need to attend this assessment. Pre-CanSkate will be the correct fit for your skater. Skaters must be registered, confirmed and paid for one of our winter CanSkate sessions in order to attend the assessment on Wed. Dec 16 @ 6:30-7:15pm. Skaters must wear a CSA approved helmet, skates (figure or hockey skates) and mitts/gloves, we do not have skates/helmets available (we do have gloves for sale in the office for $2/pair)
Please RSVP via email or phone message to confirm your assessment spot. If you cannot come to this timeslot we will be holding a 2nd assessment in the first week of January. Date/time to be determined. Attending the assessment is not mandatory, however it does assists us in placing skaters into the correct groupings prior to the first day, and opens up spaces for others from the waitlist.
We look forward to welcoming your skater to our club.
