Our Club Featured in Aspire Camp Article

The GGBFSC Aspire Camp was featured in a Learn to Skate USA article.

The article includes multiple quotes from GGBFSC president and Learn to Skate director Sarah Schoen as well as various photos from the camp earlier this year.

“We just want to keep growing the program and getting the kids inspired to join the club and do many of the things you can do with U.S. Figure Skating,” said Sarah in the article.

Ice Schedule

All ice must be contracted by 11:59 pm the day before the session. If you miss that deadline and want to skate, you can use a coach’s reserve to still skate.

Morning Ice sessions are cancelled. They were not being utilized enough to keep running them. Thank you for understanding. Here is the updated ice schedule for the Fall session.

Ice Monitoring Volunteer Hours

As a reminder, all full and introductory Club members must complete four ice monitoring volunteer hours for both Fall and Spring ice sessions.

When you sign up, please make sure to attend your session. If a conflict comes up, update Entryeeze so another parent can sign up.
