Back to School – Back to Skating!!!


The Cranbrook Skating Club welcomes all skaters to our 2015-2016 season that begins Sept. 14th.

With our new coaching staff and new programs, skating will be very popular this year, so be the first to register with our online registration that goes live on Wednesday, Sept. 2nd at www.cranbrookskating.com.

Enjoy the convenience of registering online from the comfort of your home or print your form and bring it to the Community Registration Night at Western Financial Place on Wednesday, Sept. 9th between 6:00 – 8:00 pm.

Check out the new schedule at www.cranbrookskating.com and see the ice times of your programs, lots of changes, especially for our STARSkaters and Intro-STARSkaters.  We are introducing a new program called Pre-Jumpstart this year and those skater’s who have almost completed their Canskate badges can move into this specialized group program that introduces them to Figure Skating Disciplines of Freeskate, Dance, Skating Skills and Interpretive while completing their Canskate badges.  Jumpstart is a group lesson approach for STARSkaters and all skaters registered in Jumpstart will learn all Figure Skating Disciplines as well.  The difference with Jumpstart is that the skaters will be with coaches in a lesson for the entire session.  This is an alternate choice to taking private lessons on the STARSkate sessions.

Our website is now featuring our new CanPowerskate Coaches who have recently returned from extensive training courses.  Included for all CanPowerskater’s this year will be a weekly Off-Ice Training Session on Thursdays at no extra charge!

We’ve extended our season which will culminate in a wonderful Ice Show featuring all skaters on Saturday, April 23rd!!!!

To keep all parents informed we’ll be hosting a Parent Information Night on Sept. 24th at 6:30 pm in the Warm Viewing Room at the Memorial Arena.  Bring your questions and find out more about our programs and plans for the season!

Don’t miss out on all the happenings, news and photos of your children skating this year by joining our Facebook Page – Cranbrook Skating Club.  Calendar Updates, Ice Show News, Skating Tips and Skater’s of the Week will all appear on this Facebook Page.

Register early to avoid disappointment, as only skater’s registered in advance will be allowed on the ice for their session.  Registration Forms, Schedule and Fee Guide attached to this email for your convenience.

If you have any questions please get in touch with Lorinda Nelson, our new Head Coach and Registrar at 250-426-9510 or lnelson3121@gmail.com.  Or speak to her at the Community Registration Night Sept. 9th.

We look forward to skating with you this year!!!
