Based in Kanata, the Glen Cairn Skating Club offers skating instruction to all levels of skaters through a variety of programs: learn to skate in CanSkate, enhance your hockey/ringette skills in CanPowerSkate; and figure skate in STARskate and our competitive Academy program. Ice sessions are held at Bell Sensplex and Jack Charron Arena. Off-ice training takes place at FitQuest (upstairs in Bell Sensplex) and Capital City Dance Studio (across the street from Jack Charron Arena).
Glen Cairn Skating Club is running programs at both Jack Charron Arena and Bell Sensplex for the 2020-2021 season.

As always, STARSkaters are advised to plan their season with their coach prior to registering. Prospective Academy skaters must apply to the Registrar through their coach.
This year registrants must sign a COVID-19 waiver during online registration and complete a health screening questionnaire every day they come to the rink.
Currently, guest skating is restricted to club members only. To guest skate on a session, go to Registration and select Register on the desired program, then choose Drop-In as your purchase option and pick the date(s) you want.
Competitions will look different this year under pandemic protocols. For the latest information, please go to Skate Ontario's website.
Everyone entering each facility must fill out a health screening questionnaire every day, on the day of entrance.
For Bell Sensplex complete this form online:
For Jack Charron Arena patrons will be screened verbally at the door
All patrons are asked to wear a mask at all times (except while on the ice) and maintain social distancing.
ONE spectator/parent per participant is permitted at each rink and is also subject to daily health screening.
Use only the change rooms that have been assigned for our club use.
Please also see the complete Sensplex facility COVID-19 Response Plan for their latest information.
Under the current COVID-19 protocols, we are looking for volunteers to do act as Safety Officers: open the door to skaters and patrons and do their health screening checks at Jack Charron Arena at the start of each session. Please go to Registration, STARSkate Regular Season and click on Volunteer Position to sign up. This is a great way to earn back your volunteer fee while helping your club. For Volunteer-related questions, please contact Kristine Smith.
Glen Cairn Skating Club thanks you!
