The Juan de Fuca Skating Club is excited to be able to offer our Nationally recognized learn to skate program "Canskate" to all the children in the community for our spring lessons at Westhills Arena in Langford, April 5 -May 21, 2021.
All of our spring programs for all levels (Canskate as well as the Pre-Star - Group A to Group D - Star 4+/Pre-Juvenile and up) are at this facility during these dates.
If your child can skate on their own without assistance and can fall down and get up on their own you may register for these Canskate lessons. Please remember due to COVID restrictions we have NO "hands on" in our program due to physical distancing measures in place. Also, NO spectators in the facility so the children must be able to do the health check outside the facility, and enter to go on and off the ice with our volunteers.
Please read all the information on the club website regarding our safety policies that are in place and must be respected. (March 2021 Canskate Notice posted on the Programs tab for Canskate)
Registration is open on our Uplifter online registration, which can be accessed through our website (jdfskatingclub.com) Be sure to read all the information posted before registering for one day per week as your skater must be able to follow all the safety guidelines in place as well as the skill level described above.
Questions may be directed to our club email: firstname.lastname@example.org or the Canskate Directors. Their contact information is on the club website Canskate Notice.
Looking forward to seeing all the children on the ice skating this spring!
Due to the government announcement and the facility requirements from both West Shore Parks & Recreation (Q Centre Arena) and City Centre Park (Westhills Arena), all of JDFSC is required to wear masks when in their facilities.
All skaters, coaches and volunteers are required to wear masks when inside the Q Centre Arena and Westhills Arena facilities. Specifically when entering and exiting the building, and when in common indoor spaces like hallways, lobby areas, and dressing rooms.
Please note that at this time, skaters do not have to wear a mask once on the ice. Skaters can remove their own mask and put it in their jacket pocket while they skate, but masks must be put back on once they have finished their session on the ice. Skaters are welcome to wear masks on the ice, and if masks are worn on the ice then they must stay on the entire time.
Thank you for your patience and understanding through these difficult times. Please continue to check our club website and facebook page for updated membership information.
Take care, Be well, Stay safe!
To clarify from the email sent to members on Jan. 27: during the BC/YK Section Town Hall it was said that the PHO has checks being done at establishments and facilities to ensure all guidelines are being followed. (Not by Skate Canada, thank you)
The Juan de Fuca Skating Club takes direction from Skate Canada and the BC/YK Section. They follow all orders from the PHO and viaSport along with the Skate Canada Lawyers. Everything that is drafted and sent out to us we must follow as a Skate Canada Club.
Please remember to put a name tag (made by us) on your child prior to coming to the rink. We ask you to understand that we cannot allow your child to go in without this name tag as it contains very important information that enables us to facilitate CanSkate smoothly and safely with these Covid measures in place.
If you are ill, Stay Home!
If someone in your household tests positive for COVID then the skater must also be tested. If the skaters result comes back negative, they can return to skating.
If someone in your household has a cold and the skater has no symptoms they can skate.
JDFSC will continue to post information both on the club website and club facebook page that affect any changes to our programs in the near future. The health and safety of our JDFSC skaters, coaches, volunteers and our community is most important in our decisions moving forward with this global situation.
Thank you for your understanding and patience. Please stay safe and healthy!
