Ice Show 2020- April 4 & 5, 2020 – Cancelled

 

  • As you are aware, due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the City of London and Middlesex Centre have closed all recreational facilities which includes all arenas and community centres until April 5th. Therefore, the remainder of our Winter session is cancelled
  • Unfortunately, this also means that we will not be running our year-end ice show. Although we are disappointed that we will not be able to celebrate our phenomenal season in the usual manner, we support this decision as the health of our skating family and community will always be our number one priority. 

We are currently working on ‘virtual’ ways to celebrate our skaters and their achievements over this past season. Stay tuned!!
