Caledon Centennial Skating Club (CCSC) is a small, fun, volunteer-run recreational skating club that offers CanSkate and StarSkate programs to children and youth from Caledon and surrounding areas between the months of October and May. We skate out of Inglewood, Ontario on Tuesday evenings and Caledon East on Thursday evenings. Although we only offer one CanSkate session (on Thursdays), we strive to make it the best quality CanSkate program in the region.
CCSC currently has coaching opportunities available in both CanSkate and STARSkate programs. As we are a small club, this is a great opportunity for new coaches in training to gain valuable coaching experience before moving on to larger clubs. Alternatively, it could be a great place for more experienced coaches to pick up additional hours during the week.
