Welcome to the Markham Skating Club
Welcome to the Markham Skating Club. Since 1964, the Markham Skating Club has been committed to the development of skaters of all ages in our community. We have learn-to-skate programs for children, teens, and adults. We have programs for more advanced skaters up to Gold Level testing. We also offer the SkateCanada "CanPower" power skating program for those wishing to refine their skating skills for hockey, ringette, or figure skating.
Our Mission: From building a solid foundation in skating skills to helping individuals reach their goals and dreams, our ultimate mission is to inspire a life long love for the sport of skating.
Important COVID protocols for Fall 2020 Season
- ARRIVE 20 mins prior to the start of their session and wait at the main doors on the west side of the building for admittance. Skaters will be ushered to the West pad by ‘runners.’ Late arrivals WILL NOT be admitted to the rink. Skaters will be escorted back to the west entrance for pickup once their session has concluded. Please ensure you are at the west entrance in a timely fashion to pick up your skater as there will be no staff outside the building.
- WEAR A MASK until they go on the ice and immediately after they leave the ice. PLEASE be sure your skater has a zip lock bag or other container to store their mask, Kleenex, etc. while skating.
If your skater CAN properly tie their own skates, they can put their skates on themselves in the arena. The staff has provided socially distanced, disinfected chairs for skaters to use and leave their bags on while on the ice.
If your skater CANNOT properly and securely tie their own skates, they must arrive with skates on, including hard guards (NO soft guards, e.g. hockey guards or skate covers). No one will be able to assist them if their skates are loose or come undone. Elevators are operating with 2-person occupancy for skaters who choose to use the elevators with skates.
Fall Program at Angus Glen Community Centre

We hope you and your families remain healthy during this unprecedented time.
We are all looking forward to getting back on the ice and, while the situation remains tentative, we are moving forward with plans to resume programming this Fall!
At this time we are awaiting word from the City of Markham on the reopening of our home rink; however, we have been offered ice at the Angus Glen Community Centre for a short Fall program for StarSkate (Intermediate, Senior, Advanced, Gold) and PowerSkate programs.
The session will run from September 8-October 9.
Registration opens online, Monday, August 24 at 6:00pm.
