At the Odden Rink at Taft School, Watertown CT
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
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
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
SCHEDULE UPDATES AND BREAKING
Welcome to the 2014-15 season of the Watertown Skating Club. OUR 63RD YEAR!
SCHEDULE CHANGES: Please see the Calendar below for all changes.

THANKSGIVING: There is no skating over Thanksgiving as usual, Taft always hosts a Hockey Tournament
FOR OPENING DAY: New skaters please ask for helpers before you step on ice. Look for a Junior Instructor wearing a green name tag.
Keep your name tag with your skates when you leave as you need it for admittance to the ice and 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.
