Spring Skating Lessons

With the snow and cold behind us (hopefully), our thoughts turn to Spring.

RPFSC will once again be sharing ice with Kitsilano Figure Skating Club during the Spring and Summer skating sessions.  Our clubs are now working together to develop our Spring Skating Schedule. We are hoping to publish our Spring Session schedule by mid February and begin registration by early March.

This Spring and Summer, the City will be closing not one, but two of its skating rinks. This means less ice time available and our Spring Session will run during April and May only.

During April and May, we will be able to offer full CanSkate and StarSkate programs and ice time to our Competitive Skaters.

In June, ice time will be reduced significantly and we will only be able to offer ice time to our Competitive Skaters.

CanSkate and StarSkate Programs will return in July for our Summer Skating Session.

Update on RPFSC Board of Directors

We would like to update you on a change in our Club’s Board of Directors.

In November, one of one our Board members, Marnie Candido resigned.  Marnie has been an active member of our Board of Directors for the past five years. Her service with the Board has included photographing of our skaters, coordinating the ordering of Competition Jackets and working on the Carnival Costume Committee. Although she is no longer on the Board, Marnie will continue to be a parent volunteer with our club. We would like to thank Marnie for her contributions to the Board.

To fill the vacated Board Member position, our Board has appointed E.J. Richard to fill the position until the next AGM (Fall 2017).  We are pleased to welcome E.J. to the Board and we look forward with working with her in the coming months.

Family Skate Update and Schedule

IMG_6774-91_Big_PrintOur Annual Family Skate is coming up!  This event consists of a Skating Display, followed by our Family Skate. All RPFSC members and their families including siblings are welcome to skate together, after the skills display. There will be skate rentals and helmets available from 10.30am – 12.30pm. Photography is allowed at this event.

The Skating Display will showcase skaters from our Starskate, Junior, Intermediate and Senior ice programs. Skaters from these levels were sent home with a handout to return indicating if they are available to take part or not.

For the Family Skate, in the interests of safety and depending on the numbers, we will have two 30-minute sessions. All non-RPFSC members must sign in before skating and also be required to wear  CSA Certified Hockey helmet. These requirements for non members are essential for insurance coverage.

The Schedule for our event is as follows:

  • 9:15 am and onwards – Tea, Coffee and Hot Chocolate
  • 9:30 – 10:45 am  – Skating Skills Display
  • 11:00 -11:30 am – Session 1: Family Skate
  • 11:30 – 11:45 am – Ice Clean
  • 11:45 am – 12:15 pm – Session 2: Family Skate
  • 12: 15 – 12:45 pm – Program Assistants Fun Time

ALL skating lessons will be cancelled for this day.

Door Prizes 

Donations for door prizes are welcome. If you donate a prize, we offer one (1) Volunteer Credit for a $20 value prize. Gift Cards are perfect prizes. Please email volunteer@rpfsc.ca if you will be able to donate a prize. Prizes need to be delivered to our registration desk anytime up to Thursday December 8th.


Thank you to those who have volunteered to assist on this day. We have enough Volunteers at this time. Volunteers will be receiving an email from Kylie closer to date of the event with more details.

Sadly, we will not be able to run our Potluck as we have in the past. Our growing numbers and the size of the venue no longer work to include this.

We look forward to seeing you at our event!
