CBS Skating Club is a not-for-profit skating club that is sanctioned by Skate Canada. We offer many opportunities for skaters of all ages in our community including CanSkate, STARSkate, Competitive Skate as well as Synchronized Skating. All coaching is led by NCCP Certified, Skate Canada Professional Coaches. We strive to help all members embrace the joy of skating and reach any goals they may have for themselves.
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.
To complete the course please visit the following link: https://skatecanadaparent.respectgroupinc.com/
(Association Name: South Conception Bay) Fee paid directly to Respect in Sport
We are happy to let you know that our CanSkate program will be going ahead this season! We are working diligently with the town to finalize all details along with our Covid-19 guidelines. Stay tuned for more information coming soon!

Synchro Workshop and Tryouts
Synchro is ready to begin at CBS Skating Club! We will be hosting a 2 day workshop to kick off the synchro season. This workshop will be open to anyone who will be skating on a synchro team with the club in the upcoming season. Any skaters interested in joining a team before we officially commence the season are invited to attend as well! This will be a great opportunity to get to know your team members, get your feet back underneath you and most of all have fun while improving your skating! We hope to see many of you there!
Please note: This workshop is mandatory for anyone wishing to be considered for a team they do not already have a spot on. Beginner synchro skaters are especially encouraged to come see what synchro is all about! Any questions please email: SynchroCBSSC@hotmail.com

Update to 2019-2020 Season Fundraising
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.
