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.

 

KIS Deadline is here!

 

Today is the final day to sign up for KIS which is taking place November 24-26, 2017.  If you haven’t yet signed up please follow the link below to ensure you have a place in one (or more) of the listed events.

Elementary Ice-Ations Cap-off Season

Special mention goes out to our Elementary Ice-Ations synchro team for a fun season of skating! We are very proud of what this team has accomplished this year.

And when you consider most of the girls had never participated in synchro before, that makes this season an even bigger accomplishment!  We hope all the girls had fun competing in the last competition of the year this past Saturday at the Bernie Deveau-Bert Winfield Invitational in Chatham.

Watch for the website and social media for tryout information in the next couple of weeks!

Thanks to Coach Colline for the photo.
