Update: York Region Move to Red

As York region is moving into the “red” on Monday, please note the following:

– current classes follow the red zone requirements

– only one adult (the designated health screener) may enter with the skaters. Starting on Monday, health screeners will send the skaters in and exit the building.

Stay tuned for more information about registration for the final four weeks of skating for 2020.

Learn To Skate – Stay Tuned!

Learn to Skate programs are important to the club and to our young athletes. Due to the provincial guidelines, we will be reassessing our Learn to Skate Programs for 2021 in early January. Please continue to check our website and social media updates will be posted as they become available.

Covid19 Update

It’s Time for Chocolate!

Just in time for the Holiday season, we are excited to launch our Purdy’s Chocolates Fundraiser.

We are excited to be able to offer those skaters who participate 25% of the amount they raise from their sales as a credit towards registration fees.

There are incentives for those participants that sell the most:

1st place will receive 75% of their sales as a credit.

2nd place will receive 50% of their sales as a credit.

COVID 19 Update

Covid19 Update

Due to the recent changes made by the provincial government for the region of York, we have no choice but to suspend our CanSkate and CanHockey programs effective immediately, until further notice.

This decision was not an easy one to make as we see how important physical activity is for all age groups. Unfortunately, with capacity numbers reduced to 10 (inclusive of all coaches and skaters) and as spectators (parents/guardians) are no longer permitted inside the building, it is not feasible to continue to operate our CanSkate and CanHockey program at this time.

StarSkate – Effective Monday October 19th, the Board of Directors has decided to cancel skating for the week of October 19-24, as all classes will need to be re-organized to meet the new maximum of 10 people.

Members are asked to check your email inboxes for more information. We will continue to work closely with Skate Ontario and the Town of Georgina to communicate updates as soon as we can.

Please stay tuned for further information and again we ask for your patience while we work through this together.
