The Minto Skating Club would like to congratulate Morgan McMillan for passing her Gold Dance and her Gold Interpretive tests at our June 13, 2014 High Test Day. The Minto Skating Club would also like to congratulate all the other Gold medalists to date for 2013 - 2014

Announcement - CanSkate Coordinator

The Minto Skating Club would like to announce that effective July 1, 2014 Marie-Josée Cloutier will become our first CanSkate Administrator.  Many thanks to all the candidates who participated in the competition for this new position. In addition, the Minto Skating Club would also like to thank Tara McDougall for her many years as the CanSkate Coordinator.

Schedule changes for summer warm-up and summer camp

Please note that the 5pm session for the warm-up week has been cancelled.  Skaters that qualified for that session are now able to register for the 4pm. 

Also, to offer our campers the best experience we will cancel week 1 and week 6 and instead run our summer camp weeks 2,3,4 and 5.

Summer 2014 Registration Forms

The schedule and registration forms for Summer (including the summer warm up week) are now available. 

***Reminder register by 4th June for Early Bird Discount!*** 
In order to facilitate ice scheduling and to minimize our ice costs, having as many registrations as possible by June 4th is essential. Note that the early registration discount schedule is in the same manner as our Spring Session, so if you buy larger numbers of sessions, missing the June 4th deadline will have a significant impact on your total ice costs.

We also have options available for those who need camp on Fridays.
