The Canmore Skating Club is excited to be getting back on the ice at the Canmore Recreation Centre. Skate Canada and the Town of Canmore have provided operational guidelines and resources to help the Club Return to Sport, Physical Activity and Recreation safely.
Anyone wishing to skate with us during the 2021-22 season must attend (virtually) or view the recording of the Parent / Adult Skater Information Meeting - held September 3, 2020 for the STAR/Competitive program skaters.
The CanSkate/Pre-STAR/STAR 1-3 Parent Information Meeting was held Tuesday, October 6, 2020 (link to recording of meeting here).
The health and safety protocols under which the club is currently operating are now found here - COVID-19 Protocol.
We are pleased to continue our collaboration and sharing of resources with the Banff Skating Club. You will notice on the Basic Schedule that there are three days where there is programming available in Banff. These include Wednesday after school, Thursday AM and Friday afternoon programs. Please consult the Banff Skating Club's website for more information.
Although we try to keep program times as consistent as possible, holidays, special events and Canmore Recreation Centre events may require adjustments throughout the year. The basic 2021/22 schedule (as of August 29) is below and in PDF form here Fall Schedule 2021-2022.
