This three-tiered recognition program identifies clubs who are starting the process, those clubs that meet the minimum standard and highlights those who exceed standards.
Rideau Skating Club is PROUD to have been one of the 16 clubs awarded the CanSkate Excellence - Exceeded . Check out Skate Ontario's website to find out the advanced standards we live up to when delivering our CanSkate program.
A Brief History
The Rideau Skating Club is sanctioned by Skate Canada and is in the Ontario Section of Skate Canada. The Rideau Skating Club has more than 450 members and operates out of the Mike O'Neil arena in Manotick with some sessions being held at the Fred Barrett Arena (at Bank St and Leitrim Rd) from September through to the end of April and during the spring and summer months. The Rideau Skating Club develops skaters of all abilities from the entry level recreational skaters to competitive skaters.

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.
