The ice carnival last season was a big hit for the community and many are looking forward to seeing all the new skills the young skaters will show off this season.

Skaters hitting ice with spirit

Janelle Morcombe is back for her second year as coach, and is excited to be working with the skaters again.

Princeton Skating Club

The 2011/2012 year has begun for the Princeton Skating Club, and everything is in full swing! With a great roster of skaters this year, the club is up to 56 members within their programs. Offering Learn to Skate, Figure Skating, Powerskating and Ladies Skate, they are working with skaters ages three to seventy.

Janelle Morcombe is back for her second year as coach, and is excited to be working with the skaters again. She is excited to have some of her higher level skaters working on learning double jumps and flying spins, as well as training her powerskaters to be strong and agile hockey players.

The club has a great executive lead by President, Lynette Boyd. This is Lynette’s second year as President, and is excited to see the club growing.

The club is still hoping to reach out to more skaters this year. The Senior Canskate group is hosting a Community Skate day, inviting anyone between the ages of 5 – 12 to join them on Monday, November 14, from 4:00 – 4:45 p.m.,  for a fun skate!

This is a free event to encourage health and fitness for the children of our community in a fun way.

If you would like to join the club for their fun day, make sure to bring your child with proper skates and a helmet! A caretaker must be present for the duration of the skate for all children.
