The Bentley Skating Club is gearing up for another season.

The Bentley Skating Club is gearing up for another season.

They will again be offering lessons for “Steppers” with little to no experience, “Gliders” who can get themselves up off the ice, and “Striders”, skaters that can get themselves up off the ice and have some basic skills. There were about 30 skaters last year.

Starting at the beginning of October, all the half hour lessons this year will be on Wednesday afternoons at the Bentley Arena.  They will start at 3:45 p.m. for the Steppers, 4:15 p.m. for the Gliders, and at 4:45 p.m. for the Striders.

Joslyn Snow, who has been helping with skate club since 2009 and figure skated and played hockey as a youth, is the instructor.  She can accommodate up to 15 students per class.

A child must be at last three years of age, have their own proper fitting skates, and wear a CSA certified hockey helmet (cage not mandatory).

Rochelle Stephenson is the president.  Jamie Wilkins is the vice president.  Pam Stephenson is the secretary, and Pat Madden is the Casino chairman.

A registration night was held September 29 at the elementary school but late registrations will be accepted as long as the appropriate class is not full.

Contact one of the executive or email Bentley Skating Club [skatebentley@hotmail.ca] or check out their Facebook page for more information.  Some questions are answered there.
