Power Skating Program – Registration Opens May 1

WSCRCA is pleased to offer the 1st Annual Power Skating program at the Bowness Community Arena. This is a great opportunity for children (ages 5-10) to skate through the summer and improve their skating fundamentals with a power skating instructor.

This program is for hockey and ringette players looking to improve their skating ability (please note that this is not a learn to skate program).

Registration will open to members on May 1, 2019 at 8am. Space is limited and we expect it will fill up quickly, so don’t delay!

This program is open to members only at a cost of $10 per skater per session (see dates/times below). You can register for 1 or all 5 sessions.
