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.
Children as young as four years old can join our programs and learn to skate in a fun, recreational environment. Parents are not required to be on the ice while their child is skating, but are encouraged to be at the rink while their child is on the ice.
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.
