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.
What's Happening at SSSC
Low Test - Monday, March 9
There will be NO SKATING on March 9 for Junior and Senior skaters who are not testing at Low Test
Strut Your Stuff - Thursday, March 26
SSSC is gearing up for our end of season extravaganza. All the skaters will have a chance to Strut their Stuff! Please extend invitations to your friends and family. It'll be a fun night to wrap up the 2014-2015 season.
Dress Rehearsal (Mon Mar 23) is for ALL CanSkaters! Even if you only skate on Thursday your attendance on Monday March 23rd would be appreciated to put the final touches on the show.
CanSkate Costumes: The theme is "Summer Fun" so we need summery outfits that are bright and colourful - the brighter the better! Florals and fun bold plaids would be great, and twirly skirts (not too long) are always fun. If boys don't have bright pants, wear khaki/beige pants with bold vibrant top. Helmets can be decorated as well. Floral garland Hawaiian leis (from the dollar store) are a good idea too.
We'll need a few volunteers for the night, so if you can help out please let Heather Bolton or Kari Baker know.
High Test - Sunday, March 29 in Meaford
Current Fundraiser: Kernels Popcorn - order forms are on the SSSC bulletin board in the hall at the Plex.
