About the West Carleton Skating Club

We are committed to the development of skaters of all ages.  We have learn-to-skate programs for children, teens, and even adults, and programs for more advanced skaters up to Gold Level testing. We also offer an amazing power skating program for those wishing to polish their skating skills for hockey or ringuette!  Our FABULOUS coaching staff is dedicated to helping our skaters succeed in their skating goals, while making the experience fun and enjoyable.

The West Carleton Club is a fully sanctioned Skate Canada Club and operates as a not-for-profit, volunteer-based, community organization. We operate at the W. Erskine Johnston Arena, in Carp, Ontario and continue to be an integral part of community life.

We invite you to view our website and learn more about us.

The West Carleton Skating Club is a volunteer organization run by parents and assisted by our senior skaters. This year our club will be conducting fundraising events. We depend on our parent volunteers to support our efforts to the fullest. Funds raised will offset costs, keep our fees down and generally ensure that our programs are successful. We have many opportunities for volunteers to use their talents and skills for a few hours over the course of the year. Present members are willing and eager to provide support to new volunteers.
