With many years of competitive figure skating between them and many more years coaching skaters of all levels, Minto's coaching team provides the foundation of the community for the many skaters who call Minto Skating Club their home.

Minto has assembled an exceptional team of the most experienced, dedicated skating coaches in the Ottawa area including level IV NCCP certified Free Skate and Dance coaches and an in-house choreographer. Whether you're looking for the best instruction for your children who are taking their first skating strokes in CanSkate, for a club to help you develop your competitive skating skills to reach your highest performance potential, or for something in between, Minto Skating Club has a skating program that's perfect for you to acheive your skating goals.

Summer Schedule (Draft)

As there are some changes to this year’s summer program, here is an early look at the schedule (draft).
The Club is responding to feedback and has made some changes in the delivery of our programs:

• Offering early morning sessions for our younger skaters so their parents can bring them before work.
• Levels that normally do two freeskates per day are scheduled to allow for a break between sessions.
• All levels have daily off-ice, as well as ”work-shop” sessions that will cover a variety of topics like nutrition, goal setting, dance and expression, etc.
• Daily group stroking sessions.
• We are also working on more flexibility in the camp we offer, which may include full and half day options over more weeks.

 

Please stay tuned, details will come soon!

Urgent - Ice Changes and Off-Ice

Please note the following CHANGE TO SCHEDULE to our Senior Sessions  Wednesday Apr 16th and 23rd
5:50 to 6:35 Senior Freeskate
6:35 to 6:50 Senior Stroking

Anyone wanting to do off-ice that usually does the Senior session at 5:45 can do the 5:00 L2C session in stead.

Spring Schedule and Registration Forms Available

The Spring Schedule and Registration Forms are now available! Deadline for early registration discount is April 5th. In order to facilitate ice scheduling and to minimize our ice costs, having as many registrations as possible by April 5 is essential. Note that the early registration discount schedule has changed, so if you buy larger numbers of sessions, missing the April 5 deadline will have a significant impact on your total ice costs.
