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.

 

Kurt Browning is coming to GSC!

Attention Star Skaters: Don’t forget to register for the Kurt Browning seminar on October 22nd.

The 4 hour session includes one hour on ice with Kurt Browning, one hour with a trainer for off ice training, one hour with a nutritionist learning about how to fuel your body for skating and a one hour Q&A with Kurt Browning.

Survey Says…..

Survey Summary

Georgina Skating Club members who were registered in the 2016-2017 skating season were asked to participate in an anonymous online survey to help us evaluate their experience during the 2016-2017 season.  The survey asked questions about satisfaction with club communications, program times, coaching, program assistants, and whether member families would like to volunteer with the club in the future and in which capacity. The survey also asked about their experience with the annual ice show and provide suggestions for future ice shows and seasons. A total of 30 responses were received from a total of approximately 300 GSC member families. 

Please note: The results reported can only be considered the opinions of the survey participants.  They cannot be generalized to represent the entire GSC membership population as a whole.

Conclusion:  What We Have Learned

The results from the 2016-2017 GSC Member Survey provided us with valuable information to assist in measuring our effectiveness in many areas. For example, it shows a high satisfaction rate of the member’s for their skater’s progression; satisfaction in the quality of instruction by both our coaches and program assistants, along with the use of Uplifter for both registration and payment. The survey also identified areas to explore for improvement in both our communication and our annual ice show. 

The board of directors would like to thank all respondents for taking the time to respond to our first online member survey. This year’s survey will be sent out shortly after ice show. We hope you will take the time (approximately 10 minutes) to share your experience and overall satisfaction with the club – as well as providing valuable feedback to help us plan our 2018-2019 season.
