The Huntsville Skating Club is calling on the community to join in on their FREE Canada 150 Skating Day – Let’s Skate Together celebration on Sunday, December 10, 2017 at the Canada Summit Centre.
The Huntsville Skating Club was one of only 200 groups selected nationwide to host a Canada 150 Skating Day event. On Sunday, December 10, 2017, with support from the Government of Canada through the Canadian Heritage’s Canada 150 Skating Fund, the Huntsville Skating Club wants the community to come be a part of the nationwide skating party at their Huntsville event.
This local skating party will start with a public skating event in the Jack Bionda Arena (in the Canada Summit Centre) at 9:30 a.m. Community members can skate for free and try out activities and circuits that are used in the CanSkate learn to skate program.
The Club’s coaches and programs assistants will be there to guide skaters on the ice. Skaters of all levels are welcome in hockey and figure skates. Parents and community members can join children on the ice or watch from the sidelines. Helmets are required for children 12 and under.
Following the community skating event, skating fans will be able to continue the celebration with cake and hot chocolate while they watch demonstrations by the Huntsville Skating Club’s STARSkaters at 10:30 a.m. Come see skills, jumps and spins by Club skaters.
We hope you will join us and enjoy a morning of skating while we all celebrate the 150th birthday of our country.
The Huntsville Skating Club is a Skate Canada accredited club and teaches CanSkate, STARSkate, CanPower, and Teen and Adult skating programs with professional Skate Canada certified coaches.

Registration is open for the January CanSkate and CanPower sessions. Visit huntsvilleskatingclub.ca for more information.
While the Huntsville Skating Club may not be as old as Canada, skating has a long history in the Huntsville community with the club starting in 1933. The Club is very excited to be a part of the National Canada 150 Skating Day.
Canadians are at home on the ice so let’s lace up together to enjoy our favourite winter activity and to celebrate the completion of the Canada 150 year.
