Those who skated with our club during the 2016/17 Skating Season will be given priority registration. We will send you an email to confirm the upcoming registration dates.
Just in time to cool off from the summer weather we are enjoying, our Summer Session begins Monday, July 3 and runs to and includes Monday, August 7.
A reminder that Monday lessons will be held at Hillcrest Arena while Wednesday, Friday and Saturday skating will take place at Sunset Rink.
On July 3, there will also be a Vancouver Canadians Baseball Game starting at Nat Bailey stadium at 7:05 pm. Please ensure you allow extra time to get to the rink as traffic will be heavy and parking around Hillcrest Centre will be significantly limited.
We strongly encourage you to check the Vancouver Canadians Baseball Schedule in advance for any Home Games on Monday evenings

Congratulations to our skaters: Mikaila Meslo, Erika Mak, Anna McLean and Stella Weston who are featured in the “Gold Feet” section of the June 2017 Edition of Thin Ice. “Gold Feet” is a section dedicated to recognizing skaters from the BC and Yukon who have passed Gold Level test(s).
Thin Ice is the Official Publication of the BC/YK Section. It is published quarterly and displays achievements, events, schedules, and information submitted from skating clubs, regions and members throughout the province and territory.
RPFSC is currently in discussion with the City of Vancouver Parks Board for 2017-18 ice time. Our Club’s goals are to continue offering our programs on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays and to receive additional entitled ice time. Once the City confirms our allocated ice time, we will develop our Fall and Winter Program schedule. We hope to post the schedule by the first week of August and will open on-line registration shortly thereafter. Priority registration will be available to our current members.
The RPFSC Board and our members collectively contribute to the various functions of running and managing a successful organization. During this week to honour volunteers across our country, we would like to say THANK YOU to all of our volunteer parents who generously contribute their time all skating season long to the operations and administration of our Club. Without the collective work of our volunteers, we would not be able to offer our skating programs in our community.
There will be no lessons on Sunday, April 16.
Lessons WILL take place as scheduled on Friday, April 14 and Monday, April 17.
We would like to congratulate eight of our skaters who have been invited by the BC/Yukon Section of Skate Canada to attend their Annual Development Camp which will be held in Kelowna from April 14 to 17.
Skaters from across BC and Yukon Territory who competed in the Category of Star 4 and up and achieved the camp target score at a competition during the 2016/17 competitive season are invited to attend this annual camp.
Skaters representing our club who have been invited are:
Star 4 – Kiran Nagin, Thea Trung-Yip, Georgia Tsang
Star 5 – Renee Kim, Cindy Ly, Christine Tran
Start 6 – Erika Mak, Mikaila Meslo
Congratulations on your hard work and have fun at Camp!
The RPFSC Board of Directors has made a commitment to producing its Bi-Annual Carnival for Saturday March 24, 2018
While the event is still a year away, planning begins now. Before the Board proceeds with the next steps in planning, we want to ensure that we have enough skaters committed to participate in our Carnival which is during Spring Break next year. Therefore, we are providing you with as much notice as possible for you to consider and plan for your skater’s commitment to participate in Carnival during Spring Break next year.
Download and review the Participation Commitment Form which outlines more specific requirements for skaters who will participate in our Carnival. If you haven’t already, please complete the bottom portion of the form and return it to us by April 30, 2017.
Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The 2018 Canadian Tire National Skating Championship will be held in Vancouver at the Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre at UBC from January 8-14, 2018. The 2018 event will serve as a qualification event for the team that will compete at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea later that same year.
The dedication of the community, volunteers, and fans will be critical to the successful execution of the event. Anyone who is interested in volunteering at the 2018 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships is required to volunteer at either the Super Series SummerSkate competition or ISU Adult International competition.
