A Change for 2020
The 2020 Summer Power Skating Program will look a little different this year. It will still have the same focus on skating fundamentals and provide a personalized video analysis. However, with the ice out of the RBC Centre in June and July to host the 2020 North American Indigenous Games events the program is going to be broken up a bit. Rather than 10 weekly practices from June to August at the RBC Centre there will instead be 2 sessions of 6 practices split between Cole Harbour Place and the RBC Centre. Session 1 will run on Thursdays at Cole Harbour Place in June and July. Session 2 will run on Tuesdays and Thursdays in August.
