Fall Program Registration
Fall Sessions Available:
You will notice that our sessions run from mid-September to mid-December at this time. We have made the decision to wait if COVID-19 guidelines change throughout the fall before we begin planning for our Winter sessions that will run from January to mid-April. For more COVID-19 information and updates please click above in the banner.
Skate Ontario Lottery Books:
The Woodstock Skating Club is once again participating in the 33rd Annual Ontario Skaters Promotional Contest. Why do we participate? A portion of each booklet that we sell goes directly to our club which in turn, helps us run our programming.
Each family registered with the club will be provided with a booklet of 20 tickets (cost of booklet is $40 and is automatically included in your registration fees). Skaters are encouraged to sell their tickets ($2 each) to family members, friends, coworkers, etc. Please remember to collect and keep the money for your family (as you have already purchased the booklet upon registration). Once you have sold all your tickets, please return the booklet to the WSC via a board member and/or the sign-in table. All booklets from our Fall Season must be returned to the club by January 15th, 2022. This year’s draw will take place on June 11th, 2022.
Prizes to be won:
1st Prize: 2022 Nissan Kicks (est. value $29,000)
2nd Prize: Set of 2 NCM Milano Plus 27.5” 48V e-Bikes (est. value $5000)
3rd Prize: $3000 Merit Travel Gift Certificate
4th Prize: 5 prizes of a $1000 Amazon Gift Card
5th Prize: 5 prizes of an Apple iPad
Note: If your family wishes to sell more than 1 Ontario Skaters Promotional Contest booklets, $22 of consecutive booklet sales can go towards your Family Volunteer Bond (please see below).
Family Volunteer Bond Re-Introduced This Year:
Last year, due to all the predicted disruptions to our programming, we put our Family Volunteer Bond on hold. We are introducing the Family Volunteer Bond back this season as it helps us: generate fundraising for the club; volunteers to help us run our programming; and lower session costs for all our club members.
Our Family Volunteer Bond is set at $50 for our Fall Season. Families can earn this bond back by:
- Fundraising Opportunities – at least 2 fundraisers will be scheduled throughout the fall. Fundraising profits can go towards earning back your bond. In addition, a family can purchase a second Ontario Skaters Promotional Contest booklet, in which $22 of the ticket sales will go towards your bond.
- Volunteering – helping convene the sign-in tables for your skater’s session, Program Assistant duties (PAs) and volunteering for any showcases/exhibitions that the WSC will put on. 4 hours of volunteer time = $50
- 1 Volunteer Bond per family, per season.
- Volunteer Bonds will only be reimbursed at the end of the season if a family earns back the entire $50.
- Families can use a combination of fundraising and volunteering to earn back their bond. Families are responsible for keeping track of earning back their bond by filling out the Bond Tracking Sheet and returned to the WSC via a board member and/or the sign-in table.
Parent & Child Session Format:
Skate Ontario is allowing all programs to run this season! We will be offering our traditional Pre-CanSkate session and we will also continue to offer our Parent & Child session. The Parent & Child session is designed for skaters ages 3-5 who require hands-on assistance getting up and maneuvering on the ice. “Parent” includes a member of the skater’s household or social bubble. If the “Parent” who is intending to help the skater is between the age of 12-18 please contact the club before registering. For safety, insurance and liability purposes, the “Parent” who registers with the child must be the individual who will assist them on the ice at every session (cannot switch between Parent/Guardians). The “Parent” will be responsible for assisting their skater directly on the ice. The “Parent” must have a sufficient level to be able to effectively skate on their own AND support their skater if necessary. The “Parent” must wear a CSA approved helmet (NO bicycle helmets permitted) if their own skating level is below CanSkate Stage 5 or equivalent. CanSkate Stage 5 Skills include: skating forwards and backwards with ease, stopping from a higher speed, forwards and backwards crosscuts, ability to transfer from inside/outside edges on one foot.
Updated COVID Guidelines:
The Woodstock Skating Club aligns their COVID protocols with the city of Woodstock’s Return to Play COVID-19 Arena Guidelines, Skate Ontario’s Return to Play Guidelines and Southwest Public Health. We ask that all club members do their part and read and follow the guidelines posted on our website and any updates that are communicated to you via email throughout the season. Failure to comply risks the entire club’s contract with the city of Woodstock.
As of August 2021, the city of Woodstock permits a maximum of 30 participants on each ice surface (skaters, volunteers and coaches included) and up to 2 spectators per skater (includes all family members, siblings are NOT exempt from this rule).
