6th Annual Skating Seminar
On Monday April 22, GCSC will be presenting our 6th Annual Skating Seminar featuring coaches from the Mariposa School of Skating in Barrie, ON. On Tuesday April 23, skaters will have the opportunity to book private or semi–private lessons with the Mariposa coaches.
If your skater wishes to guest skate (skate on a session they are qualified for, but not registered for) please send an e-mail request to email@example.com at least 24 hours in advance with the following information:
- Skater's name
- Coach's name
- Session requested (day and time)
You will only be notified if the request is denied. If you don't hear back from the registrar, it is OK to go ahead. Skaters showing up without following this procedure will be asked to leave the ice. Envelopes for guest skating fees will be available in the music room at the Jack Charron Arena and in the music binder at the Sensplex. Please be sure to fill in the information requested on the envelope and sign in the guest skating book / binder section. Payment is required before the skater gets on the ice.
