We would ask that you avoid parking in the covered area in front of the blue doors as these parking spaces are reserved for CFSA coaches and officials.
We apologise for the delay in putting signage in place; this will be done at the earliest opportunity.
You are still welcome to use this area to drop off your child if you wish, then please proceed to park in the adjacent areas or at the front of the building.
We would be very grateful for your cooperation on this matter.
Great day yesterday in Little Island for all involved in our club competition.
Well done to all the skaters who participated: it’s a pleasure to see so many competing for the first time, as well as the most experienced skaters. You all looked fabulous!
A very big thank you to everyone who helped, making it such a pleasant occasion as well as making it possible for it to run smoothly.
You are all amazing!
Just a quick check list for skaters competing in Little Island tomorrow:
Please make sure that your skates are in order (check wheels, toepicks and laces); for skaters using the club’s skates, you can collect them from the hall and bring them with you to Little Island.
Don’t forget your dress, tights, hair accessories and especially your USB key with your music if you have not already handed it in.
The competition will begin at 3 o’clock. The hall will be open from 1.30. You should arrive at least 45 minutes before your group’s warm-up time.
Lastly, look up, smile and enjoy your time on the floor!
If you are not competing on this occasion, you are still very welcome to come and watch.
Looking forward to seeing you all there,
We are trying to find the owner of this dress!! No label and no one seems to know whose dress it is…
One of our skaters would like to buy it / rent it for Saturday. If you recognise it please contact me (086 8077616).
Just a reminder that this Saturday 2nd March is the last day for registering for the Artistic Roller Skating Ireland competition. Start time is 3.00pm, venue is Little Island Sports Complex.
Registrations are now closed for this Saturday’s test. The hall will open at 9.30, warm-up from 10.00.
Level 1 test starts at 11.00, higher levels to follow.
Please wear either a skating dress/skirt and top, black leggings with a top/jacket, or club uniform. No hoodies, loose jumpers or baggy pants. Long hair tied up.
Please note that criteria for passing any particular level are quite strict, so if you don’t pass a level it only means that you need more work, not that you are a bad skater. If you keep practising, you will be more than likely to pass it the next time!
Any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
See you on Saturday!
*** No regular training on Saturday. If you are not doing the test you can make up for your missed class on a day of your choice, just inform your coach beforehand.
A reminder that the closing date for registration for the ARSI skating test is this Saturday 16th February.
In order to register, please bring your test fees (€5 per level) in a labelled envelope on or before Saturday, indicating which level(s) you are going to attempt.
We will regrettably be unable to include any skater who has not registered by that date.
Test requirements will be posted on our noticeboard.
Just a reminder that the CFSA AGM will take place next Tuesday 12th February at 8.00 pm at the hall.

In order to follow guidelines for best practice in sport, all competitive skaters will now be required to undergo cardiac screening.
The screening is checking for the main causes of sudden cardiac arrest and heart attacks; it includes an ECG exam, and results are given on the day.
Some of you may have had this through your school: in this case, please bring in a copy of your report.
We have organised for ER Training to offer cardial screening to all skaters who require it. This will be carried out outside the hall, in their ambulance, by a GP and a paramedic. The cost is €50.
Possible dates are: 26, 27th January, 2nd February (only one or two of these dates may be available).
For non-competitive skaters the screening is optional.
Please let me know ASAP if you would like to avail of this: email me (email@example.com) or text me (086-8077616) and I will get back to you with a time slot.
Please note that one parent should be present with skaters under 18.
