*Meet time is 1pm at Keswick High School or R.L. Graham P.S. on Biscayne Ave. (to be determined on Saturday when we receive our float number).
*Please make sure your child is dressed for the weather, wearing GSC clubwear if possible.
*The float will be pulled by a black Dodge Ram with the skating club logo on the doors.
*Attached is a map showing the parade route. Meeting places for after the parade will be one of the following-
Lakeside P.S., Keswick P.S., or on Church Street.
*Please be on time to pick your child up.
*We are happy to have parents walk with their children (if that makes them more comfortable or if they would just like to join in on the parade)

A big THANK YOU to everyone who has volunteered to have their child represent GSC in this year’s parade. Looking forward to a great afternoon!

Take note hockey players and parents!

In addition to the amazing and very successful Skate Canada / Patinage Canada CanSkate program, we also offer our own CANHockey program.

This program builds on the fundamental skills skaters have learned in CanSkate, but are focused and refined for those who are interested in or have already joined a hockey program!
