We offer many opportunities for skaters of all ages in our community including CanSkate, STARSkate, Competitive Skate as well as Synchronized Skating.

Some important reminders;
Skaters are encouraged to come rink ready, NO DRESSING ROOMS WILL BE USED. If skater needs to put on their skates at the rink, they can do so on the chairs in the hallway.
Participants (5 years of age or older), spectators, employees, volunteers and instructors should wear a non-medical mask, when not engaged in moderate/vigorous physical activity and while moving throughout the facility (e.g. in common spaces, on the bench, scorekeepers box, hallways, etc). Coaches will provide more instruction to skaters when they are permitted to remove their masks.
As always, social distancing is required between skaters, coaches, and volunteers at all times.
We will be running a normal schedule for the next eight weeks to account for the missed sessions and we will have more info on exact end dates per session when we restart and move forward.
PLEASE NOTE: The rink will be closed Friday, April 2nd, Sunday April 4th, and Monday April 5th due to the Easter holiday.
Respect in Sport
In order to maintain a respectful, positive atmosphere moving forward, it is mandatory that parents of members (Home Club and Associate), adult members and volunteers take the Respect in Sport Program before commencement of the 2020/2021 skating season.
The Respect in Sport course will be a part of your registration process as it is with other similar sports organizations such as CBR Minor Hockey. If you are involved with other organizations using this program you only have to complete it once. You can import your certification number to our Club's site. Please note that Skate Canada requires recertification every 4 years.

Update to 2019-2020 Season Fundraising
PLEASE NOTE: All accounts have now been updated and fundraising money has been applied where requested. Should you have any questions, please contact the club at email@example.com
We have been in contact with Service NL in regard to monies raised during the 2019/2020 season and our ability to distribute these funds. The following information has been given to us by the Licensing Officer, Lisa Cox from the Consumer Affairs Division.
Amateur sport clubs, leagues or associations may only use lottery proceeds for the following purposes:
- The cost of travel to and from tournaments which are sanctioned by the provincial sports organizations, including the cost of reasonable accommodations while attending tournaments;
If the funds from this event was not held, then your club may identify to our office other club uses which include:
- The cost of equipment and uniforms for team use;
- The cost of training fees or coaching for youth;
Lottery proceeds raised by amateur sport clubs, leagues or associations shall not be used for salaries for players, cash awards or banquets.
“All monies raised through a licensed lottery which was conducted and managed by the licensee, Conception Bay South Figure Skating Club, must remain with the club. Since the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a halt of sport team travel, your organization may identify to our office in writing, one or more of the above-noted legitimate proceeds. However, your organization shall not disperse lottery proceeds to athletes as payment, cash awards and/or salaries. Individuals who sold tickets cannot claim ownership of lottery proceeds. Lottery proceeds may not be transferred to other sporting clubs, leagues or associations.”
We will be working within these rules and we will be requesting permission to use the funds raised for equipment, registration and coaching costs. We will update further once we have permission from Service NL to use our fundraising money for these purposes.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times.
