BFSC Skating Updates

UPDATED February 13th 2020

We have confirmed with Clarington that we can run sessions with 10 Skaters and up to 3 coaches on the ICE.  This allows our sessions to become cost effective again and gets us back on the ICE.

Please confirm with your coach their availability prior to signing up.

Session Registration will be drop in based until the end of February.  We are trying to avoid refunds as they are very time consuming.  You may sign up for all drop in sessions for the week or for both weeks. We do need 10 skaters per session to make them cost effective.

Health Screening must be completed by 3 pm the day of the Skating Session and for every session by both skater and parent entering the facility.  Coaches are required to use the same link.

NEW HEALTH CHECK FOR 2021

We are unable to run our Power Skating and Canskate at this time due to Skate Ontario and Municipal Covid Protocols.  

We will start these classes once Durham enters into a relaxed Orange or better Framework.

Fall/Winter Announcement

The Bowmanville Figure Skating Club is working closely with Skate Ontario and the Municipality of Clarington to announce our Fall Figure Skating Schedule.

We will start off the season offering Starskate (Completed Canskate 4 and above).

We look forward to posting our Learn to Skate/Canskate programs as soon as the Return to Play Protocols are in place.  We will keep you posted through Facebook, our Website and Instagram when Learn to Skater/Canskate registration will open. 

Skate Ontario Return to Play protocols and Public Health Ontario guidelines will be followed to ensure the health and safety of our skating community.

Once we have confirmed our Ice Contract with the Municipality we will publish and open registration for STARSKATE.

Thank you for your patience and understanding

Please be Safe!
