Club Carnival — A Night At the Movies
Skate Muskoka is hosting a year-end carnival to celebrate all of our skaters and their families! Club Carnival is Friday March 31 at 6:15pm and the theme is A Night at the Movies. All skaters are encouraged to participate. Parents to please let us know whether your skater(s) will participate. (Let us know either way so we can plan!) Email Christine at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 24, or sign up at the Canskate table before or after your session. Rehearsals start in March during your skater's regularly scheduled ice times. View/download the 2023 Carnival Rehearsal Schedule.pdf. If you have questions, contact Coach Christine.
Brave Blade — What a Show!
Brave Blade was a smashing success! 800 people attended and the club raised almost $12,000. The show was a fabulous kick-off for the Fire & Ice Festival and a great showcase for both our skating talent and community spirit. We made a lot of memories that night! Once again, we wish to express our deepest gratitude to everyone who helped make Skate Muskoka's largest fundraiser of the year the huge success that it was. 🙏🏽
StarSkate Awards Dinner
Details to come. Stay tuned!

Dexter attends every week with a great attitude and a willingness to help. He has become a real leader on the Canskate session this year and is a great role model to our Junior PAs. Great job, Dexter!
