About Us

The Gloucester Skating Club has been serving skaters since 1971.

We are currently one of the 6th largest clubs in Canada with an active membership of more than 1,100 skaters.

Our club offers a wide variety of skating programs including CanSkate, Competitive stream, STARSkate, Synchronized, Dance, Pairs and Teen-Adult programs.

The Club’s professional coaching staff are second to none. Their efforts, along with the skaters’ talent and hard work, contribute to the success of our club.

Since its inception in 1971, the Gloucester Skating Club has been the home and training center of many accomplished skaters and coaches. These individuals successfully competed at National, International and Olympic levels. We pay tribute to their accomplishments and contributions to the sport through our Hall of Fame.

A team of volunteers governs the Gloucester Skating Club. The Board of Directors is elected yearly at the Annual General Meeting.
