Welcome to the Watertown Skating Club

At the Odden Rink at Taft School, Watertown CT

2014-2015 Season

Circle Time


    Welcome to the 2014-15 season Watertown Skating Club.

Our start date is Saturday Nov 1.  If the kids want to wear some Halloween garb go for it!  

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.   

Please NOTE some changes in schedule to accommodate Taft: See Attachments for NOV DEC.

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.

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.
