Ice Changes

In an effort to increase participation in our early morning sessions and not have to cancel them, we have made a few adjustments to the schedule based off of feedback from our coaches.

As a result, our early morning sessions will now be held on Wednesday & Friday mornings from 6-6:55am.

Ice Schedule

All ice must be contracted by 11:59 pm the day before the session.

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.
