2015-2016 Indoor Skating @ Scooter’s in Mississauga- Season Begins November 2nd
We are pleased to announce that the Scooter’s Indoor Speed Club will begin its 2015-2016 indoor inline skating program on Monday November 2nd 2015. Doors will open at 7:30pm and skating will begin at 8pm and finish at 9:30pm. The season will come to a close on March 28th 2016. Skating will be held weekly- Mondays 8pm to 9:30pm with doors open at 7:30pm.
Please plan to arrive for 7:30pm and be ready to help out. We need 6 volunteers to help with set up: four people to clean the floor (1 to mix vinegar & water and one to put up protective mats while 2 dry mop on skates, immediately followed by four to dry-mop and vinegar). It is impossible to start skating at 8pm unless we have volunteers who arrive early and immediately start with preparing the floor.
- Helmets are mandatory. Additional protective equipment (wrist guards, knee and elbow pads) is recommended but not mandatory.
- Members are required to be registered with Roller Sports Canada (RSC). You can register here: http://rollersports.ca/registration/
- The program will start with a focus on safety, how to safely skate in groups/ safe passing/ getting passed safely, and track pattern.
- For now, the program is open to those who are able to stand and are stable on skates, can start rolling on their own, are able to hop/ jump over small obstacles, and able to turn right and left.
The complete fee structure will be published this week on this website. Also, I plan on updating the website with this year’s information later this week.
PASS IT ON, GET THE WORD OUT: If you know anyone you think could be interested in skating with the Scooter’s Indoor Speed Club, please pass along this message.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED: We are always looking for volunteers to help with running and managing the Club. If you’re willing to help in any capacity, please get in touch with me by replying to this e-mail. Areas where volunteers are required include running programs, coordinating set-up and clean-up, website management, promotion of the club, communications with members, registration and check-in (paper work), coordinating members for attending competitions. We need the skating community to step-up and take initiative and ownership because running a Club (as well as with most parts of this sports) relies almost exclusively on volunteer contributions.
