About the Club
The Summerland Skating Club (SSC) came into being February 1956 for a six week session with sixty members. In the fall of that year the Club expanded to 90 members for its first full season with Walter Powell as its first president. We now have an average of 130 members each season.
Since its inception, SSC skaters have achieved many successes. After passing Silver and Gold tests, competing and winning at all levels of competition including BC Sections, some of our skaters have gone on to skate for ice shows or chosen coaching as a career.
This tradition of excellence continues with our young skaters achieving many of their goals on a continuous basis. Through hard work and perseverance these young athletes learn many lessons that will remain with them throughout their lives. Skaters learn to work on their own, pick themselves up when they fall, enjoy the feeling of achievement after a great deal of hard work and some experience the thrill of competition. They also have the opportunity to give back to skating as a volunteer through the Program Assistants program.
