On Saturday March 17, 2018 all of the skaters take part in the Saanich Skating Club of Victoria Skating Recital. This event is always the highlight of the skating season.
- The skaters learn routines, wear costumes and get to show off their skating skills for a large audience.
- We sell tickets to the show, sell flowers so that relatives & friends can present them to their performers.
- We operate the concession stand for the day so all profits belong to the Club.
There is a recital fee which is used to cover the cost of extra coaching time, extra ice rental & various other expenses that come with putting on a performance.
Costumes are not included in the recital fee but we always try to keep your cost to a minimum.
The recital always requires a lot of volunteers. We arrange the scheduling so that volunteers do not miss their child’s performance.
