The Glencoe Skating Club's main objective is to ensure the safety of its members, coaches, and volunteers. At no time do we ever recommend travelling to sessions if it is unsafe to do so, or if you are not comfortable in doing so. There is no penalty for missing a session.
The coaches of GSC commute from various areas and as such, may experience inclement weather when Glencoe does not. If coaches cancel for this reason, we will try to find a replacement coach in time for regularly scheduled sessions. If it is not possible, we will inform skaters as soon as possible through the following ways:
Glencoe Skating Club Text Group (update coming soon)
In instances where replacement coaches are not available, we will endeavour to offer 'open ice' to members (with an insured Board Member present for supervision off-ice). Whatever the case may be, the details will be provided in the correspondences issued.
Thank you for your understanding. GSC Executive & Board of Directors (Statement issued January 9, 2017)
The first step to becoming a great skater is to simply believe in yourself.
