As per the newest regulations, please be advised that there will be no skating until further notice.
Our PA's (program assistants) are trained at the beginning and half way through the season for CanSkate. Our club appreciates each & every one of them!
Is there still skating if school is cancelled? YES. Our coaches still come to the rink despite school closures, however they do not expect skaters to attend when road conditions or temperatures are hazardous.
Each year we have the opportunity to recognize our Grads! Some of our Grads started with our club right where it all begins; Pre-Canskate while others join us along the way....either way we are grateful they shared their time with Skate Ponoka.
This year we have 3 grads! Amy, Emily & Maddison, we wish you all the best next year as you all go different directions to further your education. We hope you all are able to have time to continue enjoying your love on the ice!
WHERE DO I BUY SKATES?
Great question as skates are very important! There are a few options for figure skates. The 2 most common stores that our club families use are Pro Skate (2 stores in Edmonton) and United Cycle (1 store in Edmonton). All of these stores will check your skaters foot to see what brand of skate will fit them the best. They then heat mold the skate, check blade alignment and sharpen them for you. All of these stores offer used skates (if you ask) and often they end up being cheaper than you'd pay at a box store. Both of these stores also will sell skating dresses, guards and tights too. Another option for used skates or apparel is to check our "For Sale" page right here on the website.
