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.
