Coaching & Programming

Coaching is available from:
Vanessa Hensel –
Kim Yzerman -

There are two (2) stroking lessons/week included in your registration fee. Each lesson is 15 minutes in length. The stroking sessions are on Tuesdays and Fridays and will be taught on a rotational basis by Vanessa, and Kim. All skaters on the ice are to participate in these lessons. Due to time constraints, private lessons may be taught during the stroking session. Timing of individual lessons will be rotated to ensure each skater takes a turn having a lesson during the stroking session and it isn’t the same skater missing stroking each week.


It is important that all skaters have the opportunity to skate to their music, including solo, artistic, skills, and dance. Please show all skaters at all levels the same respect regarding their music. Please note that session specific music, and students in lesson will take priority.

If parents are at the arena, it is always greatly appreciated by the coaches, and skaters if someone can play the music; this helps ensure everyone gets their music on. We would encourage you to take a turn at this if you are able. Just ask the coaches how you can help.


All communication will be sent to parents/skaters via email. This includes all newsletters, special event notices, and general club communication. In an effort to do our part for the environment, we are going green. Therefore paper copies will not be given out.
It is the parents’ responsibility to share the information with their child. If your child wishes to receive notifications at their own email address as well, please provide their email address to the club at
The Meaford Skating Club can also be found on Facebook and we have a website

Fundraising & Your Volunteer Hours

Volunteers are what makes this club survive and both a time or financial commitment from each family is a requirement of registration in all skating programs offered.  Not fulfilling your volunteer commitment (time or financial) will deem you as a member “not in good standing”.  We do not collect bond cheques but each family will receive $150 worth of tickets for the Basket of Cheer draw.  All Winter Sport registrations are required to complete 5, 10 & 15 hours per family (depending on the program) of volunteer time towards fundraising, helping with an event, a position on the skating committee, MFSC Executive etc. 

Intermediate, Juniors and Seniors - 15 Volunteer Hours Required or a $400 “buy out”

Subsequent children enrolled in skating = 3 additional hours of volunteer time or a $150 “buy out”

Notes:- If a family wishes not to participate in volunteer hours, they may "buy out” of the program and submit their payment with their registration payment, at which time their name will be removed from the "volunteer call list"

 Volunteer tracking is the responsibility of the individual families.  All hours must be signed off on by a member of the executive.

Who do I talk to about concerns with the program?

If you have any concerns with your skaters progress or any other element of the program please feel free to talk with any member of the Executive or your child’s coach.

Our club has an email address for all inquiries, please feel free to contact us at any time.

*Skaters and Parents MUST sign the Skater and Parent Code of Conduct before the first night of skating. Failure to do so will result in your skating being delayed.

Looking forward to seeing you at the rink!
