New Look!

We will soon have merchandise and uniforms for sale to all skaters, parents, and friends/family. Uniforms will be for skaters going to competitions, while merchandise will be available to everyone else. There will be a wide range of products available. There is also a new logo to be released at the same time. The new merch and uniforms will have the new logo on them. We will need to do some construction on the website once the new logo is released. When that happens we ask everyone to be patient with us, but we will let you know when that is to come. We can't wait for it all to become available very soon!


Spring Show!

Our spring show is approaching fast and as our previous email has stated we have had to change the date and times. The new date is Saturday, May 15th @ 10-12 am & 5-7 pm. There are two showings, hence the two times, which all skaters participating in the show will need to be in attendance for.

Learn to Skate!

The next session of Learn to Skate starts tomorrow, April 5, at it's regularly scheduled time of 6-7 pm. Remember when signing up for this session that you can also sign up for the Spring Show. If you want to participate in the Show and have already signed up, but did not select the correct class, simply speak with a LTS coach so that it can be changed. Skaters who choose to not perform in the show will have normal practice time during the second half of class.
