The Saugeen Shores Skating Club (SSSC) is sanctioned by Skate Canada and is a member club of the Skate Canada-Central Ontario Section. The Club offers a full range of programs, including CanSkate (learn to skate) and Star Skate (test program).
SSSC is a not-for-profit organization served by dedicated volunteer board members and a highly skilled group of professional coaches. Our values fall in line with that of Skate Canada, which is an association dedicated to the principles of enabling every Canadian to participate in skating throughout their lifetime for fun, fitness and/or achievement.
Regardless of which ice sport children choose (hockey, ringette, figure skating, or speed skating), they must all learn the same basic skills. If a child learns the basic skills first, it will be easier for him/her to concentrate on the specific skills associated with a particular ice sport. A young person entering hockey, for example, will be able to learn hockey skills and the rules of the game far more effectively if they have already learned the basics of skating.
Program Assistants Needed for CanSkate
SSSC strongly encourages all our skaters that have a Junior Bronze Level or higher to participate in the Canskate Program as a Program Assistant.
There will be a mandatory training session on Oct 2nd from 3:45 to 5:00 p.m. at the Plex.
Please remember that someone helped you out when you were beginning to skate. It’s time to give back.
