KIS 2018 is almost here!

KIS (Keswick Invitational Skate) is the Georgina Skating Club’s largest fundraiser of the year helping to keep skater registration fees low and with the cost of producing our annual ice show.

All StarSkate families are required to volunteer 8 hours of their mandatory 12 hours of volunteer time to the club at our annual KIS competition.  Volunteering at KIS is a great opportunity for all parents to be a part of the success that GSC has had in hosting this competition for many years and see what goes into making a competition of this size run smoothly.  We also encourage our CanSkate parents to volunteer as there are plenty of volunteer opportunities throughout the weekend.

For available volunteer opportunities and for more information about KIS please visit our KIS Competition page.

This is also a perfect opportunity for high school students to sign up for required volunteer hours.  Sign up at the link or send an email to volunteerwithgsc@gmail.com and providing your available times and we’ll make sure we have a position available.

 

Happy Halloween!

Please join us in some spooky fun and games. Skaters will rotate through three stations of fun. They will then exit at the Zamboni end. Halloween characters will take skaters to our Haunted House. Skaters will receive a treat from our friendly witch.

Costumes may be worn but NO face masks!  Skates and helmets (where applicable) are required.
