Our program runs EVERY SUNDAY at TAFT, from September 20 through March 20, in the MAYS RINK (across the breezeway) parking lot off Guernseytown Rd, Watertown.
We are very excited about our 2015/2016 Skating Season. Watertown Skating Club has been around since 1951 and remains a family oriented, fun place to skate. Over the years our club has evolved into the great organization it is today. We have an amazing learn to skate program, ice dancing, adult skate, a synchronized skating team, a competitive team and have had some time with world renowned, Olympic guest coaches. Each year our club grows and progresses and this year is no different.
Due to a Taft decision all outside groups are using the Mays Rink. This has effected the amount of ice time we are able to obtain. We are only able to use the rink on Sunday night and have developed the following schedule.
