Holiday Showcase

Our annual Holiday Performance Showcase took place on Sunday, December 18, 2022 at Jack Charron Arena.

Performances featured figure skating by GCSC Academy and STARSkaters of all levels. Family and friends who came out to see the show and support the club enjoyed hot chocolate and popcorn, a chance to earn raffle prizes and a 50/50 draw. After the show, all were welcome to stay and enjoy a family skate. 

A huge thank you to our volunteer photographer, Jane MacAulay, for taking the photos and to Clark Merchant for being our announcer and photo editor!
