The Bradford District Skating Club is a Skate Canada sanctioned club, run by a volunteer Board of Directors. Please consider volunteering your time. You could be instrumental in shaping the future of the club! It is a challenging and rewarding way to be involved in skating.
Please note, on August 1, 2018 the Annual General Meeting was held in anticipation of the 2018/2019 skating season. Seven members of the BDSC community attended resulting in quorum not being met. As a result, administration of the BDSC is currently being undertaken by a de facto Board made up of 4 volunteers. Your patience and understanding is expected when dealing with issues you may have. These are dedicated individuals who have undertaken a huge responsibility to ensure skating in Bradford continues. We would like to thank additional individuals who have assisted where they can (you know who you are).
The current Board is comprised of the following volunteers:
Vice President Vacant
Membership Chair Jen MacPhee
Skate Canada Test Chair Veronika Tvaradze
StarSkate Co-ordinator Jen MacPhee
Publicity Chair Vacant
Secretary Andrea Caverly
On-line registration/Website Andrea Caverly
Coach's Representative Rotational basis
