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.
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!

Registration will continue through the UpLifter portal. You can find more information on our Registration Page. Please be aware that there are many changes this year due to COVID-19. Please read all registration information carefully and make sure to opt in to club communications so that we can keep you up to date on further changes.
Filling out a COVID-19 waiver is no longer necessary for spectators accompanying skaters into the arena. Spectators will still need to complete a daily Health Screening and Tracking form.

WTSC is committed to get everyone on the ice to participate, especially during this difficult time. Financial issues should not prevent a child from skating. Please contact us by email at WTSC.firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to a board member if you need assistance. We are happy to answer any questions about our programs.
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.
Thanks to everyone who participated and made our first virtual AGM a success. It was great to see everyone and a big change from how we normally run things. We have posted a video of the AGM on our YouTube Channel. If your child was presented an award but unable to attend, you can watch your coach say a few words about them. You can watch the video by clicking on the link https://youtu.be/tviSQlOckgk. The awards presentation starts around 13:15 and the order of awards is in the description of the video.
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.
We are an energetic club with a variety of Skate Canada sanctioned programs that cater to skaters of every level and ability.
Lessons are available in both Simcoe & Waterford & we accept registrations throughout the year.
If you have any questions please email our club executive.
