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!!!

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:

Holiday Fundraiser / Rheo Thompson Mint Smoothies

posted Nov 24, 2019, 7:11 AM by ASC Ayr Skating Club   [ updated Nov 24, 2019, 7:12 AM ]

Many of you have been inquiring about the Holiday Greenery fundraiser that we have done for the past several years.  Regrettably our supplier has decided that they are going to close for the winter season moving forward (and won't be doing the fundraiser anymore).  Despite an extensive search we were unable to find another supplier for holiday greenery at a similar price to what we have all enjoyed.

With that said, we are pleased to offer a new holiday fundraiser - Rheo Thompson Mint Smoothies.  For those of you who aren't familiar with them, Rheo Thompson is a fine chocolatier in Stratford.  Their mint flavoured chocolate smoothies are one of their most popular items.

$3 each or 2 for $5. Drop by the ASC club office or talk to one of our skating families to place your order by 14-Dec-2019. Cash and carry. We've also attached an order form below to help with placing orders (maybe at your work place)?

Thanks on behalf of the ASC! It is fundraising like this which helps us to keep our program fees as low as possible for our skaters!

Due to the snowy/slippery road conditions, reports of numerous accidents, and that all of our coaches come from out of town, we will have to cancel all scheduled sessions for this evening.

CanSkate families, if you wish to make up your lesson from this evening, you are welcome to join in on one of our Saturday sessions at the ACC.  Please just let us know the date you wish to make up in advance so that we can plan accordingly.

Thanks in advance for your understanding and stay safe!
