What is an Ice Show?

Lights! Music! Action! All levels of skaters are included in creating a fun and entertaining skating show to be performed before a live audience and fans of all ages. There will be back drops, props, costumes, theatre lights and more. This year’s theme is Time Travel.

Where is the show held?

All practices, shows and photo day will be held at Sixteen Mile Sports Complex at 3070 Neyagawa Blvd.

Who can sign up?

Anyone who has registered in one of Skate Oakville’s programs during the 2018/19 main season is eligible to participate in the ice show.

Where do I register?

You can register online at skateoakville.ca beginning Tuesday Nov. 27, 2018 at 10:00AM up to and including Wednesday Jan. 16, 2019 for STARSkate and higher, and Thursday January 31, 2019 for CanSkate.

Skaters that miss the deadline will be put on a wait list for an available spot. Please email office@skateoakville.ca to be put on the waiting list for the Ice Show.

What is the cost?                                                                                                                                         

CanSkate: $160.00

STARSkate and higher:  $220 first number, $110 second number. $85 third number

What do my fees cover?

Registration and ticket sales cover practice ice costs, coaching (choreography), costumes, spot lights, lighting, sound equipment, curtain – you will be amazed at the transformation our rink under goes! Skaters are required to provide their own tights/socks, make up and on occasion shirt/leggings to complete a costume. Skaters in the show will receive a ‘skater ticket’ which allows them entry to watch the half of the show they are not skating in.

Please print and return this costume measurement form to the Skate Oakville office by January 16th, 2019 (STAR and higher), and January 31, 2019 (CanSkate) or you will miss the costume order deadline.
