Skating for Families since 1951

At the Odden Rink at Taft School, Watertown CT

Check the calendar weekly for any changes to the schedule. Changes will also be posted on Facebook and sent by email.

We will try to let you know as soon as we know of any changes.

Parents of junior members may guest every Sunday 4:30-5:30pm for $5.

We will also post a monthly Guest Skate when Junior members may bring a friend for $5. A parent must sign waiver for junior guests.

To encourage more parents to skate with their kids we offer half hour parent lessons during the children's sessions on Saturday for a $10 fee, to be taught by a Junior Instructor. Sign up at attendance table.

Private lessons for children and adults are always available.

All skaters, beginner - advanced, young - vintage, are welcome to join.

CHANGES: The biggest new change is that Adults and JI's are now skating first at 9am on Saturday mornings so the Junior kids can sleep in a little. Then the new skater and Basic Skill 1-4 skaters arrive for a 9:45am-10:45 skate with lesson. Come early for registration. If you are new and need a hand holder please let us know. Then Basic skill 5-8 skater start at 10:45am-noon. They can get on the ice a little early 10:30 if they wish. Sibling can practice skate on the ends if they do not interfere with lessons.

Helmets not enforced but hats and mittens help protect. Paid in full skaters please come to the front of the line to collect your badges. There is pogo credit card billing available now but there will be a processing fees. Split payments with check add $25 and the remainder is due by Dec 15. BS 1-4 parents need to be present while their children are skating. Dress warm. A reminder- No one should go upstairs without skate guards on. It's bad for the skates and the floors!

WSC members may be interested in getting the club logo on a jacket, sweatshirt, or vest. The important thing to note is that it does not have to be bought at any special store, it can be something they already own. Joey's Army Navy Store in Watertown has our logo and will be happy to transfer it to any clothing brought to them for just $8.00. They also have a variety of different styles and sizes for adults and children in the store or they can be ordered from their catalog.

One of our adults: Pat Bouteiller has volunteered to take vest/jackets to Joey's Army Navy to have WSC logo sewn on for the $10. Great idea for Christmas.
