Skate Windsor, officially known as The Windsor Figure Skating Club, is the oldest skating club in the Windsor area, founded October 30, 1939.
For more than 75 years, Skate Windsor has maintained its excellent reputation with its CanSkate Learn to Skate programs, developing boys’ and girls’ skills on the ice, preparing them for figure skating, hockey, speed skating, recreational skating, and for having fun! Skate Windsor’s CanSkate programs are sanctioned by Skate Canada and led by dedicated, experienced coaches.
Many of our CanSkate program skaters progress into Skate Windsor’s figure skater development programs, both competitive and recreational. These programs are also part of Skate Canada.
Our Canskate learn to skate programs have also assisted skater in developing the necessary forward, backward and stopping skills necessary to play hockey.
Skate Windsor is the only organization in Windsor registered as a sport club with Special Olympics Ontario and have specially trained coaches to work with long term athletic development LTAD for skaters with intellectual disabilities.
Skate Windsor’s home is in two rinks, Adie Knox Arena and Forest Glade Arena, to serve the children in both the west and east ends of the city and offer variety in program scheduling.
In the spring and summer months, when the City of Windsor reduces the amount of skating surfaces available, Skate Windsor uses the WFCU Centre for its programs.
Skate Windsor is a member-run not-for-profit organization. We encourage the instruction, practice, enjoyment and advancement of all aspects of ice skating through the expertise of our nationally trained NCCP certified professional Coaches. We are run by a Board of Directors made up of dedicated volunteers.
