 Christmas Ice

Registration opens for Christmas Ice (Dec 19-Dec 30) on December 1.  This year, registration will all be done on line so no sign up sheets on the wall at Jimmie Condon!

Please note the levels on each session as well as the maximum number of skaters allowed on the ice!  We reserve the right to move skaters if you register for the wrong session.  Remember the level you register in, is the same as what you registered in for Sectionals (skated Juv at Sectionals? Sign up for Juv on the Christmas ice sessions).

Pick Up Ice only available if there is room on a session!

Also note the rink you are skating on – we have 4 over the Christmas season!

Register Here for Christmas Ice

2016-2017 Sectional Championships

Well done everyone!!  Calalta is so proud to have over 60 skaters attend Sectionals this year!  Some of you had personal bests, some didn’t, some of you medaled and will continue on to Challenge and some won’t – all we know is that it was a thrill to see so many skaters try their best!
