About Rideau Skating Club
The Rideau Skating Club is sanctioned by Skate Canada, and is in the Eastern Ontario Section (EOS) of
Skate Canada. The Rideau Skating Club has more than 450 members and operates out of the Manotick arena with some sessions being
held at the Fred Barrett arena in Leitrim from September through to the end of April. During the summer months, many of our
skaters guest skate with other clubs in the Ottawa area. The Rideau Skating Club develops skaters of all abilities,
from first time recreational skaters to competitive skaters. For more information on Skate Canada, please visit their website at

The Rideau Skating Club was formed in 1976. The
Club is run entirely by parent volunteers. Operations of the Club
are handled by a volunteer Executive, which is elected at the Club's Annual General Meeting in the spring of each year. The
Executive communicates with the membership by posting information on the Club bulletin board at the arena, and through this website.
Members are encouraged to check the bulletin board frequently for important messages. Members of the Executive are interested
in hearing your compliments and concerns. Feedback can also be provided via the
Contact Us form.
The Rideau Skating Club belongs to the members of the Club. Only through active participation of
the members will the Club remain strong and effective. Volunteers are needed to help out in all aspects of the operations. There are many ways to help out, and all members are encouraged to donate some time. Contact a
member of the Executive to find out more about how you can help, and watch for opportunities to become part of the Executive
as members retire. These opportunities are posted in late winter.
