A New Season of Skating is Fast Approaching!

The Wawa Figure Skating Club is gearing up for the 2018-2019 skating season and we can’t wait to see what our skaters will achieve this season!


Last season the club ran several different programs and trained skaters of many ages and abilities. From CanSkate, which is Skate Canada’s “learn to skate program”, all the way up to StarSkate which develops skating skills, ice dance, free skate and interpretive skating.


Last season our skaters attended competitions and seminars including one coached by world champion Elvis Stoijko and Jen Jackson. Our skaters also got to take part in some fun club events like the Halloween Bring a Friend and our very own Futures competition hosted here in Wawa. StarSkaters travelled to Thunder Bay and Sault Ste Marie for skating competitions. Our skaters showcased their talent and the skills learned over the year at our year-end gala at which many skaters received special awards for their hard work.


The WFSC is pleased to offer a variety of different skating programs geared to all levels and ages coached by our Skate Canada certified coaches. Come Skate With me gives pre-school first-time skaters and a parent the chance to get on the ice together. Having a parent there to help their child as they learn to skate really helps to encourage children to feel comfortable on the ice.


Advanced Skate is a great transition program for our skaters who are getting ready to advance from CanSkate to StarSkate. This program offers group lessons to build up the faster paced skating and skills required for StarSkate.  All of our programs encourage progression with regular evaluations and rewards.


Our registration night is set for September 5th at the Michipicoten Memorial Community Centre at 6:00 pm. Fundraising for our season has already begun with the arrival of our pepperettes! These can be purchased for $21/package and proceeds go towards helping the club’s fundraising efforts. These will be available at the registration night.
