Summer Speciality Ice

The final specialty class will be Tuesday. It is with Coach Molly and will focus on Power.


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.

Christmas Ice Show

Save the date! Christmas Ice Show will be Saturday December 17. Note the date correction!

Club Fundraisers

All ways to raise money for the club:

Reminder that every family needs to raise $200 of fundraising for the year.

Two local vendors have been added to Raise Right. Shell gift cards and Above the Stars Boutique LLC

The Shell gift cards are the same as what we have always offered but they must now be purchased through Raise Right under the search LOCAL, you will also find Above the Stars in that same spot.

Michelle VandeHey will still be distributing the cards when they come in.
