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 are back!
TBFSC is 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.
Port Arthur Arena
Saturday - 9:00-11:00 am
October 5, 12, 19, 26
November 2, 16, 30
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 by September 23, 2013. Space is limited so register your skater early!
