Reinstate local Interclub and invitational events to Skate Ontario

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!

We, the undersigned, ask that Skate Ontario reinstates the option of clubs hosting Skate Canada Invitational and Regional Interclub eventssimilar to those being hosted in every province of Canada, except Ontario, without having to submit to the very restrictive bidding protocol that is currently the case for recreational skating.  

Rationale: To maintain opportunities for recreational skating in Ontario as fun, relaxed and inexpensive events for skaters and parents in local arenas where family and friends may come to watch their progress and cheer them on. Also, recreational clubs need these fundraising events to keep their clubs and skating programs afloat. The current system set out by Skate Ontario is not conducive to

1) promoting recreational skating in Ontario and

2) keeping the sport alive for recreational skaters.
