Ice Schedule Changes

Due to low attendance on two of the sessions, the GGBFSC Board has made the following changes to the schedule effective November 1st. 

All days will stay the same except for Thursday and Saturday as stated below.  

Thursday

     4:40 – 5:35 PM

     5:35 – 6:30 PM

     6:30 – 7:30 PM Learn to Skate

Saturday 

     8:30 – 10:00 AM Learn to Skate

The Board put a lot of time and thought into this decision.  They will continue to review the ice usage on a monthly basis. 

Fall Ice Schedule

All ice must be contracted by 11:59 pm the day before the session. If you miss that deadline and want to skate, you can use a coach’s reserve to still skate.

Club Ice Sheet – Fall 2021

There are plenty of club ice times that aren’t used to their capacity. Here are some reminders on how we can fill those:

  • Did you know that a skater can skate without their coach on the ice? It’s a great way to practice!
  • If a skater wants to skate for a time that wasn’t signed up for in advance, a Coach’s Reserve ticket may be purchased for the day of. Any coach can provide a ticket for the skater, it does not have to be their coach. The coach will make sure there is room on the ice and give the skater a reserve ticket to fill out name, date and session skated and then drop it in the GGBFSC drop box.

Next Test Session

  • Friday, December 3 – 8am – 7pm – This test session has a GOLD/Senior panel for Moves, Free Skate, Solo Pattern Dance, Partnered Pattern Dance (partner Logan Giulietti-Schmitt) and Solo Free Dance. See website for details.
