With the Province of Ontario moving into Lockdown on December 26, 2020, we regrettably must put all sessions on hold until at least January 25, 2021.

We will provide more information as we get closer to that date and when we have better direction from the Province, Huron Perth Public Health, the Municipality of South Huron and Skate Ontario. 

Decisions regarding refunds will not be determined until the end of the season. We thank you for your patience. 

Please watch your emails, Facebook, and this site for updates. We are all hopeful that the COVID-19 situation in our region will improve to the point that restrictions will be lifted and we will be able to welcome our skaters back to the ice to continue this unprecedented season.

Skate Canada COVID-19 Response

Dear Members and Registrants,

In these uncertain times for our organization, our communities and our world, we want to assure our Skate Canada family that we are all in this together. 

This is an unprecedented time for all of us and there is no playbook to refer to. We need to follow the lead of our government officials and health care authorities and do our part to overcome this pandemic together.

We know our community is eager to get back on the ice and resume skating activities. Several provincial governments have released frameworks for reopening services and lifting restrictions on physical/social distancing. As a result, effective immediately, we have lifted the suspension of Skate Canada activities, with limitations.

For skating to resume the below restriction must be adhered to:

  • Skate Canada sections, clubs and skating schools can resume only if permitted by the jurisdiction they are located in. This means that all members and registrants must follow the precautions outlined by their provincial and municipal governments and their local venue operators. 

As the COVID-19 response varies from location to location, there is no standard approach that applies to all clubs and schools. However, Skate Canada has developed Return to Skating Guidelines. The guidelines follow recommendations from the Public Health Agency of Canada to help limit the spread of COVID-19 and ensure all participants feel safe while participating in skating activities.

Since each province’s reopening plan differs, it is the responsibility of the section, club, skating school and coach to abide by the various requirements outlined by their governments. The timeline for reopening will vary depending on your jurisdiction, so not all clubs and skating schools will be able to resume collectively.

It is imperative that all clubs, skating schools and coaches reach out to their Section to inquire about provincial regulations and how skating is affected in your area.  Skate Canada and all Sections are working together to find the way forward and will regroup regularly to ensure inquiries are addressed.

As information is released and further best practices for facilitating skating are developed, we will continue to update the community. As a reminder, due to the fluidity of COVID-19, Skate Canada has created a dedicated webpage as a primary resource for our members and registrants.

Thank you for taking the necessary precautions and doing what you can to limit the spread of COVID-19. By working together and going the extra mile, as an organization and as neighbours, we can make a difference.

Rowan’s Law

Skate Ontario’s Concussion Protocol requires that athletes under 26 and parents of athletes under 18 years of age must confirm that they have reviewed the Government of Ontario Concussion Awareness Resources below and Skate Ontario’s Concussion Code of Conduct for Athletes and Parents/Guardians prior to registration and/or on the first day of skating.

Each and every family is required to sign the Rowan’s Law Acknowledgement Form prior to their skater entering the ice surface with no exceptions to this rule. It is a requirement of the skating club to police this policy and be prepared to present proof, if and when audited by the provincial government. 

For more information about Rowan’s Law and Skate Ontario’s Concussion Protocol, please check out our Rowan’s Law information page.

Congratulations to our CanSkaters!

Thank you to Sheri who has been helping the skaters at ExeterSC reach their skating goals for 23 years! She has supported so many skaters with her expertise and advice, and they have improved their skating and reached their testing goals because of it. We wish her all the best on the next path on her journey in Vancouver!
