Be a part of the annual Skating Spectacular on Ice. The Skating Show is a great opportunity for developing skaters to get extra ice time and apply their skating skills in new ways!

The Show will be a fundraiser for the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD), with at least 50% of net proceeds donated to CHaD. Over the last two-years, we’ve raised over $23,000 for CHaD, including Positve Tracks’ (CHaD’s funding partner) matching contribution.

Information about our 2017 Skating Show including who can participate, practice schedule, volunteering, etc., can be found here (pdf).  The registration deadline for the Skating Show is March 1st.

Our spring session skating lessons will begin February 27th (freestyle begins February 26th) and ends on April 6th (freestyle ends April 7th).  Register for lessons by Thursday, February 23rd.

Late registrations will be accepted on a space-available basis and subject to a late fee.  Details about each session are available on our registration page.  Ready to sign-up?
