As you have likely heard already, the province of Alberta has expanded public health measures such that beginning Friday, November 27, all levels of sport are closed for in-person service.

As such, it seems prudent to cancel the remaining Fall session CanSkate classes.

We thank you for your understanding and your outstanding compliance with Skate Canada and Canmore Skating Club's COVID-19 protocols such as signing-in and out of class and bringing only one volunteer to class.

Information about the badges you achieved, comments from your coaches and how the remaining 3 classes will either be made up or reconciled will be communicated to you once the Board has had a bit of time to figure it all out.

If you are interested in registering for CanSkate for the Winter session (typically January - March), would you be so kind as to reply to this email so we have an idea of what a future class might look like.

Thank you and stay safe.

Until further notice, the Canmore Skating Club will not be approving drop-in skating for those who are not already registered in Canmore Skating Club or Banff Skating Club 2020/21 season programs. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

As COVID-19 cases rise in the province and particular ice sessions and off-ice classes become more congested, it is a good time to remind all members of the Canmore Skating Club’s Drop-in and Guest Skating policy.

Drop-in and Guest Skating Policy: Skaters who want to use ice or attend off-ice sessions that they are not registered for (referred to as drop-in) must first notify the Club at and get the session approved at least 24 hours in advance. Guest skating or off-ice training will only be approved if space permits. Skaters who have not pre-registered will not be permitted to participate. Payment is to be made before the skater steps on the ice or class begins. A 20% administration fee will be added to any amounts for drop-in sessions not paid in advance.

The 20% administrative fee on amounts not paid in advance was approved at the September 30, 2020 Board meeting.

Drop-in registration process:

  1. Email with requested date and session(s) at least 24 hours in advance.

You will NOT be permitted to participate, regardless of the number of participants present, if you have not pre-registered.

  1. You will receive an invoice from Uplifter as proof that your request has been approved.
  2. You may pay online using your credit card or payment envelopes are available on the music cart at the rink. Please write the skater’s name, session date, start and end times on the front of the envelope. Insert the fee (preferably a cheque); and, leave the envelope in the DROP-IN Box provided.

* Please note that the skater must also have a properly executed 2020-21 season Skate Canada Assumption of Risk and Waiver on file with the Canmore Skating Club before approval will be granted.

A closer look at the costs to the Club to administer STAR 1 - 5 assessments has resulted in a small increase to the amount charged to skaters. As of November 15, 2020, STAR 1 -5 and all Skills assessments will cost $12.50 per assessment.

We make this acknowledgement in the spirit of respect, reconciliation and gratitude to the people of Treaty 7 - the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Kainai, Piikani), the Tsuut’ina, the Îyâxe Nakoda Nations (Chiniki, Bearspaw, Wesley), and the Métis Nation (Region 3) - on whose territory we are so fortunate to live, work, learn and play.
