It’s that time again! All GSC STARskate and COMPSkate skaters are invited to participate in the club’s fitness assessments.

Why take part?: First, the results of these assessments inform the club’s programming – Working from the data, our off-ice classes are designed to best meet the needs of our skaters. Secondly, coaches use the data to track their skaters’ strengths and weakness. Third, this data allows coaches and trainers to apply the Long Term Athlete Development Model. This model provides a framework for athlete development best practices:
“Children, youth and adults need to do the right things at the right time to develop in their sport or activity – whether they want to be hockey players, dancers, figure skaters or gymnasts. Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) describes the things athletes need to be doing at specific ages and stages.” – Sport for Life

We need volunteers to make this happen!
Come volunteer while your child does the assessment

Thank You!

The 2015 Autumn Skate Invitational is now in the books, and on behalf of the Gloucester Skating Club, Skate Ontario & Skate Canada Eastern Ontario, we want to thank all those who helped make it such a successful event.

Our volunteers are the backbone of our club, and they did an amazing job all weekend to keep such a big event running smoothly. Thank you as well to all of our judges and Skate Canada Eastern Ontario officials whose experience and professionalism helped to guide us. The coaches, both our GSC coaches and those from visiting clubs, did a wonderful job both with their skaters and supporting the event.

Finally, a salute to the skaters who participated. Your skill and dedication continues to dazzle us, and the level of skating we saw during Autumn Skate was a treat to watch. We hope you enjoyed the event, and made both new friends and new memories.

Thank you again to all who made Autumn Skate 2015 possible. Enjoy the rest of your season!
