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
