Congratulations to skaters that recently passed tests!

Congratulations to Ava for her 4th gold medal! Amazing job Ava!

Ice Show was a Success!

Many many thanks to the planning committee! It takes a lot of work to make this happen for all of us. Thank you to the volunteers! Everyone’s 5 hours really was needed and helped make it such a success. The coaches deserve a huge thank you for their hard work. And the show can’t go on without the skaters. Thank you skaters for performing your hearts out for all to enjoy!

Big thanks to Kimberly Hoffman and Bobbi Jo Debbout for sharing all their pictures! There are some really good ones!

Summer Session dates: Wednesdays,  June 21, 28 July 5, 19, 26 August 2, 9, 16 (8 week session)

Time: 5:20pm-6:50pm

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.

Reminder that a skater can skate on club ice without a coach. This is a great opportunity for practice time.
