COVID-19 - SPRING SESSION CANCELLED

posted Mar 18, 2020, 4:01 PM by ASC Ayr Skating Club   [ updated Mar 18, 2020, 4:01 PM ]

Our volunteer board of directors has continued to monitor the Covid-19 pandemic situation.  As an update to our previous announcement, we can now confirm that our Spring skating session is cancelled.  

While we are all saddened by this news, the Ayr Skating Club must follow the direction of local health authorities, government agencies, Skate Canada, and the Township of North Dumfries.

Earlier today Skate Canada issued the following direction:
“Effective March 19, 2020, all Skate Canada sanctioned activities and programming are suspended until further notice.”

In addition, the Township of North Dumfries has announced: 
"A business decision has been made to remove the ice at the NDCC and to cancel Spring Ice for the April/May 2020 time period."

Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time.

Be well, stay healthy and, hopefully, "see you at the rink" in September!

COVID-19 - ALL ASC SESSIONS CANCELLED

posted Mar 15, 2020, 10:13 AM by ASC Ayr Skating Club   [ updated Mar 15, 2020, 10:13 AM ]

Over the last 48 hours our volunteer board of directors has been working with the Township of North Dumfries, monitoring Skate Canada's directives, monitoring local health authority advice, and monitoring other sports organization responses to the escalating Covid-19 pandemic.

This morning our board has decided to cancel all of our instructional programs effective immediately.  While we know this decision is disappointing (it is for us as well), we feel it is the responsible thing to do.

In addition, the Township issued the following advisory moments ago "All municipal-run indoor cultural/recreational facilities will be CLOSED to the public from March 16 to April 5, 2020.  This means that all programs and activities offered in our facilities will be cancelled from March 16 to April 5, 2020."

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this challenging and rapidly changing time.

Be well and stay healthy.

Sat. 29-Feb. SKATING CANCELLED due to power outage

posted Feb 29, 2020, 7:17 AM by ASC Ayr Skating Club   [ updated Feb 29, 2020, 7:17 AM ]

There is currently a large power outage affecting Ayr and parts of Cambridge with the currently estimated resolution time of 2:00pm.

Because of this, we are unable to run our CanSkate program this morning; there is simply not enough light on the ice surface at the ACC to run our program safely.

Apologies for this inconvenience but we must make safety our first priority.  Should you wish to do a make up less on one of our Monday sessions, please just let us know.

Thanks and see you at the rink (just not today),

Join Us! Pre Competition Showcase - 6:00pm Feb. 10 @ NDCC.

posted Jan 18, 2020, 7:25 AM by ASC Ayr Skating Club   [ updated Jan 18, 2020, 7:25 AM ]

Come watch our skaters show off their stuff on 10-Feb-2020 from 600-730pm at the NDCC.

In mid-late Feb. many of our StarSkaters will be heading off to their first competitions of the season. Many of these skaters will be competing for the first time.

To help prepare our stakers, we will be conducting a Pre Competition Showcase on Monday, Feb. 10, 2020 from 600pm-730pm.  This will give our StarSkaters some opportunity to perform their solos and demonstrate their skills in front of an audience prior to competition.

We invite you and your family and friends to join us to watch this special session.  Feel free to drop in for part of the session if you can't attend the whole thing.

Our Skating Harness Is IN!!!

posted Jan 8, 2020, 3:56 PM by ASC Ayr Skating Club   [ updated Jan 8, 2020, 3:57 PM ]

Today was a very special day for the Ayr Skating Club.  As many of you know, we've been working for the past year or so to bring a jump harness to the NDCC arena.  Jump harnesses help skaters learn how to do jumps without the risk of injury from falling.

Thanks to the generosity of the Ontario Trillium Fund, Cambridge and North Dumfries Community Foundation, and the Centre for the Community Group, who all provided generous grants, we were able to install the jump harness today.


             


We'd also like to thank the Township of North Dumfries and PARCs Inc. for their partnership and help with the installation of our harness.

We will be more formally recognizing these wonderful organizations at our season end gala in March.

Here are a few pictures of the "first jumps" with the new harness:
