Ten Year Volunteer Award

Congratulations to Cathie Spithoff, Karen Hoard, Barb Tabachak and Pat and Joe Greco for earning a 10 year volunteer pin which was presented to each of them at the Section AGM. This group are exceptional volunteers, selflessly giving their time for the club and our children.

Karen has sat on the board, volunteers at every event and has been Ice Show Chair for many years.  This is a huge job and every year, Karen handles it like a pro, right down to the last detail!  

Cathie has been club Treasurer for many years, taking care of the finances and keeping our bank account in line and making sure all of the bills are paid on time!  Cathie also volunteers at every event and it seems like she is at the rink 24/7!

Barb Tabachack has been a valuable asset to our club. She has been our fundraising chair for many years. Along with her board duties she continues to sit on both local competition committees as admissions coordinator greeting skaters and families to the events.

Pat and Joe Greco have been involved with our club for over 25 years. The last 10 plus years they have been a welcoming face to our annual ice show. Joe is always behind the scenes lending a hand and giving his expertise. Pat is a welcoming face at the front door helping with tickets and greeting the patrons. We are very lucky to have them both.

Congratulations to Everyone, our club's longest and hardest working volunteers!  Well deserved!!

TBFSC has been participating in a Skate Canada Canskate pilot program for the last two years. The program has been deemed successful and just this year, Skate Canada has introduced this CanSkate program to the rest of the skating clubs in Canada. We welcome all CanSkate participants back to our third year in this program.  We were very excited to be invited to be a part of this pilot program and we are looking forward to continuing on with our fun and upbeat CanSkate sessions!  Register your child today!

Saturday Morning Simmulations

Please check back in September of dates and times

TBFSC will once again offering Saturday morning simmulations to all interested skaters.

Simmulations give skaters the opportunity to run through their programs alone on the ice, in an effort to simmulate the competition and test experience to help prepare them for competitions and test days. Skaters may wear their competition outfits if they choose. This program is extremely beneficial to all ages and skating levels. 

Each skater will participate in a 5-6 minute warm up and then run through their program. Once simmulations are complete, there will be a general skating session.

 

Simmulations are then followed by dryland training next door at the Canada Games Complex.  A trainer with dance background will take skaters through a program which will develop their physical ability for figure skating as well as other sports! Strength training, core strength, plyometrics and flexibility will all be covered.

Please note: Simmulations and Dryland Trainings are 2 separate programs with separate costs. Skaters may choose to do one or both.

For more information on either program, please contact Barb O'Brien at davebarb(at)tbaytel(dot)net . Space is limited so register your skater early!
