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 skaters and Basic Skill 1-4 skaters arrive for a 9:45am-10:45 skate with lesson. 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.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR NEW JUNIOR INSTRUCTORS!

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 $10.00. 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.

REMINDERS:

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

If you need help, look for a green name tag- that person should be a Coach, Board Member or Junior Instructor.

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.

BS 1-4 parents need to be present while their children are skating. Dress warm.

No one should go upstairs without skate guards on. It's bad for the skates and the floors!

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.

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 the attendance table.
