Save the Date: Saturday December 20–Skater Showcase and Skate with Santa!
Spend the morning watching our amazing soloists and all four of our competitive synchronized skating teams as well as our SynchroSkate group! These energetic groups of skaters will be performing their routines in between our talented solo skaters.
From 1:30-3:30 we will have our Annual Skate with Santa family skate. Come enjoy some hot chocolate and cookies while you skate. Santa will be there and watch out for the Grinch!
This is also the only time of year that our Sparkling Ice teams will reach out to the USC membership to raise funds for a trip to Sault St Marie in February. Look for 24 amazing Silent Auction baskets chock a block full of carefully donated items for you to bid on. Get some holiday shopping done and support our teams as well! There will be a 50-50 cash draw for the competitive group as well as Ice Show prime seating and parking being auctioned off! Don’t miss this exciting day at USC. Stay tuned for more details.
Nut awareness at USC
A friendly reminder that we do have skaters in our club with anaphylactic nut allergies. These allergies are life threatening. Please be cognizant of the fact that we make an effort to promote a NUT FREE environment just as the YRDSB and YRCDSB do. Please do not bring nuts as snacks or items that contain nuts to skating. While we realize that we are a multi use facility with other user groups, we strongly encourage families to support this initiative for our skaters’ safety.
Have a great week, USC!
