With cooler weather, soon approaching the Prince Rupert Skating Club is getting ready for their Skating Season, but this year it will be a little different.
Registration for The Prince Rupert Skating club now open. However, spots are limited  
Registrar for the club, Cindy Warren, says like most recreational sports COVID-19 has altered the way the 2020 season will pan out.
Warren addressed that pre-can skate- kids ages three to five will now be able to register because of the high level of physical contact that is required. However, those children who can pick them selves up if they fall on the ice can register.
"We are limited in the number of kids we can have on the ice as well as number of people in the building. So parents will not be allowed to watch their sessions, the skaters of all levels will have to come prepared to come on the ice, a parent is allowed to come in long enough to put the skates on their child, of the child is unable to do that themselves, but then the parent has to leave. Then when the ice is clear then we have our cleaning protocols and sanitizing everything.”
For competitive skaters, although there is no scheduled competitions, you are encouraged to register for the season.
"I'm not counting on any competition, but they still will be working on their levels and there are stages they can go through and for the competitive skaters there are dance, free skate and solos and so they will still be working on those things moving forward. So in the event a competition opens up they will be available to apply and go."
As for the end of the season ice show, it does not look to happen at this moment. Skaters, beginners and advance are encouraged to register and work on their skills in case things change in the near future.
