COVID Update March 21, 2022

As of March 21, 2022, Norfolk County has removed mask mandates in county operated buildings, including arenas. While masks are no longer required, skaters and spectators who feel more comfortable wearing a mask inside County buildings are encouraged to do so, for an added layer of protection.


This is a period of transition for most people, so please continue to wear a mask if you feel comfortable, and be respectful of each other regardless of their choice around masking.

Screening tools are still available on our website.  Please follow HN Health Unit Guidelines if you are unwell or believe you have been exposed to COVID.

 

  For more details, see our updated COVID Protocols on our COVID-19 page.

COVID Update March 1, 2022

Disney Extravaganza Carnival Sponsors

Thank you to all the Disney Extravaganza Carnival Sponsors!  The Community of Waterford and surrounding area is most certainly supporting the Waterford Skating Club 2022 Carnival. 

A VERY BIG THANK YOU to all the gold sponsors.  Without your financial donations, our skaters could not showcase their growing skating skills at this 2022 Waterford Skating Club Disney Extravaganza Carnival.

Winter Weather

Winter weather can lead to arena closures and cancellation of skating programs.  We will post information on Facebook and this site if there are any closures.  Please also monitor the email associated with your account in UpLifter.

Registration Winter 2022 Open Now

Registration is now open for the Winter 2022 season.  Many classes are already filled for this shortened season.  You can sign up to put your skater on the waiting list.  We are offering 2 days of CanSkate lessons for skaters age 4 and up on Mondays and Thursdays.  We are also offering Me and My Parent CanSkate and a new CanSkate PreCanSkate/Level 1 especially for skaters just beginning their skating career.  There will be a PrePowerSkating class on Wednesday nights for young hockey players up to age 7.  We are offering up to 3 days per week of STARSkate sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  The sessions are split into Junior (STARSkate 1-2) and Senior (STARSkate 3 and up).  Please head over to the registration page for times and details.

COVID-19 Self Assessment Tool

Each person entering the arena for WTSC programs must pass this COVID-19 screening.  This assessment must be completed each day before coming to skating.  Please use the buttons below:

You will be required to sign in at the arena and confirm that all who are attending have passed the screening on each day of skating.

Back to skating at the Waterford Arena!!

Time to share more good news. Summer ice is now in the Tricenturena.  Registration is now open for WTSC's summer Power Skating program.  There are 6 one hour sessions over 3 weeks from August 5th to 21st.  The full schedule is on Uplifter.  Junior (Atom and Novice) and senior (Pee-wee and higher) classes are available.  The cost is $155 plus a Skate Canada fee of $43 (if you have not already skated with a Skate Canada club since September 2020).

Plans are in the works for Fall/Winter 2021/2022 programs. We plan to run CanSkate learn to skate and StarSkate figure skating programs as well as Power Skating.  We will also get parents and new skaters back on the ice for our popular Me and My Parent CanSkate.  Our popular CanSkate Elite program will continue this year for those skaters interested in progressing from learn to skate to figure skating.  Finally, we hope to get our adults back on the ice and in shape with SkateFit.  Get your skates sharpened and keep checking our website and Facebook page.

Thank You!!

Time to share some good news. The Harley Snively Memorial Art Fund has made a wonderful donation to our club. This generous group has donated a large number of skating costumes to help our skaters bring their performances to life on the ice.

Thank you for supporting our kids. It is truly appreciated.

Canadian Tire Jumpstart Grant

 

We are pleased to share that WTSC has been selected by Canadian Tire Jumpstart to receive a grant from their Sport Relief Fund.  The fund helps community sport organizations like ours continue to provide access to sport and play for Canandain kids.  This grant will go a long way towards helping us to pay for increased costs due to COVID safety protocols, such as increased ice user fees and decreased numbers of skaters on the ice in each program, and help families who need financial assistance to get their children skating.  We have been able to increase our programming to meet unique needs in our community, through programs such as Me & My Parent Canskate.

This has been a challenging year here in Norfolk County and across Canada to help keep our kids active and healthy.  Along with Jumpstart, we understand the role sport plays in the health and well-being of kids and their families and are doing everything possible to help figure skating and community sports continue.

 

Thank you Jumpstart for your help to keep WTSC on the ice!

WTSC Back on the Ice

 

We are all very excited to get back to skating.  However, there will be some changes this year to keep everyone healthy.  Skate Ontario has released the following video as a guide to give you an idea of what to expect: COVID-19 Safety Protocols.  

Concussion Code of Conduct

The Ontario government has enacted a new law, Rowan's Law, to increase awareness of concussion and reduce injuries to young athletes.  It is named for a young rugby player that died after repeated concussions were not recognized.  The law requires that every adult, or the parent/guardian of every athlete under 18 review educational material regarding concussion and the club must document this.  There is also a requirement to affirm this before every competition.  Please review the Concussion Code of Conduct on our site and then fill out the Concussion Form for every skater (child, PA or adult) that will be on ice with the club.  As of October 17, you will be unable to skate with the club unless your Concussion Form has been completed.

Thanks to all the people and sponsors that made this year's 50th Anniversary Carnival featuring Elvis Stojko a huge success.
