Once again this year, West Ottawa Ringette has partnered with Goulbourn Skating Club (GSC) to provide its members with the CanPower Power Skating Program. This year, there are both 10 and 20 week programs starting in early October and ending in March.

The objectives of this power skating program are to:

  • Encourage players on competitive teams to develop efficient skating techniques, increase speed, agility and technical aspects of skating which will accelerate development.
  • Partner with GSC (Skate Canada) on creating a fun focused young/beginner level skating development program. (Bunnies)
  • Partner with Skate Canada on Ringette skating skill development.
  • Maintain a cost competitive program.

Other Goulbourn Skating Club (GSC) sessions

In addition to these sessions that are exclusive to West Ottawa Ringette skaters, the GSC also offers public sessions (20 weeks) that are available to our players at a reduced rate.

To qualify for the reduced rate, registration MUST be submitted to West Ottawa, and NOT to GSC.

Mondays at Richmond      7-7:50 pm     for ages 8 and up ($325)

Tuesdays at Stittsville       6-6:50 pm     for ages 4-10 ($325)

Tuesdays at Stittsville       7-7:50 pm     for ages 11 and up ($325)

While the Monday at 6 pm session in Richmond is available to all players, it has, in the past, been a popular choice for Novice and Petite players. For this reason, U14 Tween and older players may wish to participate in the Tuesday at 7 pm session in Stittsville (which is not exclusive to West Ottawa Skaters).

Remember, you must register with West Ottawa Ringette, not Goulbourn Skating Club for these prices and programs.  Any further inquiries may be directed to: directoratlarge@westottawaringette.com

OUR CONDOLENCES
On June 30th, we lost a dear friend and family member.  Rob MacKean played an instrumental role with West Ottawa and the ringette community as a parent, friend, coach, and past-president.  He will be sorely missed.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the MacKean family. http://capitalmemorial.sharingmemories.ca/site/Robert-MacKean.html?s=40
