Quiz Night 21st February

Hi Everyone,

Liam, dad of one of our skaters, has kindly offered to organise a quiz night as a fundraiser for Cork Open 2020.

This will take place on Friday 21st February at 8pm in Counihan’s Bar.

We would be very grateful for any prizes big or small that could be donated for the event.

More info to follow.

Blocked toilets

Dear All,

The toilets have repeatedly been blocked in recent months and we have had to incur significant costs in order to have them unblocked.

We would respectfully appeal to everyone to please not throw anything down the toilets that may obstruct them. Bins are provided in each cubicle.

Many thanks,

Sabrina

Practice sessions

Dear All,

While we do our best  to try and have a coach present during practice sessions (on Monday, Wednesday and Friday nights), there may be some days where no one is available.

If you are unable to remain on the premises while your child is skating during these hours, please ensure that you have checked if there is a coach present before leaving after dropping off your child.

The club will not accept responsibility for supervising children outside of class times.

We apologise for any inconvenience.

Well done!

A fantastic performance by all our skaters today, well done Everyone!!

A huge big thank you to all the coaches for preparing choreographies, running extra practices, for all the encouragement and, especially, for the example of hard work (and excellent work) that they offer to their junior skaters.

A special thanks to all the parents who baked, cooked, served hot drinks, lifted furniture, played music, presented, cleaned up… you really are amazing!

We wish you a very Happy Christmas and a fantastic 2020. We look forward to seeing you back… next week!
