Glengarry Skating Club

The Glengarry Skating Club is a non-profit organization which brings a variety of skating opportunities to the children and youth of Penticton and surrounding area. Glengarry is a sanctioned Skate Canada club that offers many Learn-to-Skate classes for all ages and first timers. We also offer Power Skating classes for the hockey and ringette players and various levels of Figure Skating programs from recreational to competitive.

Our Impact Why We Exist

Glengarry Skating Club has been a member of the Penticton community since 1953.  We have offered opportunities for our youth to learn to skate, improve hockey/ringette skating skills, and pursue figure skating careers.  Figure skating is a tough, demanding sport that teaches our kids not only about persistence and determination, but also goal setting, community, and strong work ethics.  Our young figure skaters are passionate and focused on a very demanding and thrilling sport.

Our community includes over 250 families.  We hold many events every year.  These events include an anual ice show, an annual winter pop concert, parties for the figure skaters and an annual AGM banquet and awards.  

Our Story What We Do

Glengarry Skating Club offers skating programs for all ages and skill level of skaters.  Our board is made up of volunteers who are parents of skaters in the club.  Our club works under the Skate Canada umbrella and implement the programs that have been nationally created to support skating in our country.  Using these program curriculum and NCCP certified coaches, we teach beginners how to skate, teach hockey players to skate better and more efficiently and we teach skaters to become figure skaters.

Our Programs How We Do It

Our programs include:

  • Pre-CanSkate: Learn to skate for ages 3-4 years old
  • CanSkate: Learn to Skate for ages 5-12
  • CanPower: Power skating for hockey/ringetter players ages 5-18
  • Canskate Academy: Entry level figure skating
  • Figure Skating programs:  Canskate Academy, Junoir Academy, Star Skate, Competitive Skate

All programs include a high ratio of NCCP certified coaches who have been trained to implement the Skate Canada programs.

What You Can Do

Currently seeking funds for some of our programs.  Ongoing sponsorships always welcome, especially for our annual ice show which is a very anticipated event that all of our skaters enjoy.  This event does not produce enough income to offset the costs, but we continue to fundraise instead of carrying these costs to our skaters.

Some of our skaters find the costs of figure skating a barriere to their full participation in the sport.  Individual sponorship for our competitive skaters is also welcome.
