NEW 18 SESSION ICE PACKAGES VALID ON EITHER FRIDAY OR SATURDAY NIGHT SESSIONS!

There is a NEW 18-Session Ice Package which may be used Fridays OR Saturdays. See the attached form for pricing; the form should be completed and submitted with the membership application. Please note: we have also revised the Ice Usage Policy to make it more flexible to accommodate skaters practice schedules.

 

This year we have revised the Subscription Ice Policy and will offer a 18-Session package of two-hour discounted sessions, which may be used either Friday or Saturday.

  • Payment Form must be submitted with membership and no later than Sept. 1st, to guarantee availability.
  • WHSC Ice Usage Policy has changed! The first 30 minutes are no longer restricted to Moves only.
  • Walk-on rate  $33 per hour or $50 per 90 minutes. Any 2 hour sessions will be charged at the per hour rate  if not purchased in advance with the Session Ice Package.

 

WHSC has revised the Subscription Ice Policy to allow skaters more flexibility with their practice schedules and continue to receive the best pricing offered for Windy Hill Skating Club ice sessions.  Rates are based on annual estimated ice costs and are calculated to provide up to a 28 % discounted rate over the walk on ice cost. Checks should be made out to WHSC.  18-Session Ice Package forms are due by September 1st.

 

The Windy Hill Skating Club (WHSC) is a member of the US Figure Skating Association and offers Freestyle ice sessions on most Fridays and Saturdays.  The Windy Hill Skating Club’s season at the Dorothy Hamill Skating Rink in Greenwich, CT kicks off on Friday, September 25, 2015 and the last session will be Saturday, March 12, 2016.  The Greenwich Town Competition will be held on the last Sunday in February 2016.

2-Hour Delay for Greenwich Town Competition 2015

Warning!

The Rink Manager has determined that there will be a 2-hour delay to permit extra travel time and plowing to be completed in the area of the rink.  Therefore, the practice ice will be scheduled for 9:45-10:25 AM and the first Free Style event warm up will take place at 11:05AM.  Please add two hours to your skater’s scheduled warm up time – so if your skater was warming up at 10:15, that will now be 12:15.  The Special Cup Awards are now at 2:30PM and Basic Skills events begin at 2:50PM. Please note that all skaters should be on hand 90 minutes before their warm up.  Thank you for your patience.

Coaches:

 We have identified an inconsistency in the 2014-15 USFSA Basic Skills Competition Manual concerning the Basic 8 Program Elements  – Waltz Jump criteria and want to call your attention to a clarification we have received from Erin Schopf, USFSA Basic Skills Program Manager.

 She has stated that “For your Greenwich Town Competition, please include the verbiage “from a standstill, or a back edge entry*”.  It has been confirmed that the Teaching Tips Manual and the Basic Skills Competition Manual were not consistent for the 2014-2015 season.
