Power Skating Programs this Fall 2021

Hello players and families,

Here is a brief overview of our power skating program for the first half of the season.

Note at this time the ice allocation is set from the City for the October to December 2021 time period, and our power skating programs are set according to our known allocation. I will be working with our ice scheduler and power skating providers to put similar programs in place for the second half of the season.

Also note as there are no official tournaments from Ringette Ontario until January 2022 , and we will take advantage of our Friday ice allocation to provide an additional power skating opportunity (see Power Skating Plus below) for our U14 and U16 players (open to both regional and competitive players), who want to maximize their personal ringette development. U19 players can register too, but priority will be given to U14 and U16 players.

Registration information, pricing and exact session times by level will be posted shortly.

Good quality skating is the most important skill a ringette player can acquire, in order to maximize their success and enjoyment of the sport long term. I highly encourage players to sign up for the CORA power skating programs if possible.

Please see the details of the programs below, and contact me if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Jim Fawcett
