Burlington Skating Centre - Club History
The Burlington Skating Club was founded in 1953 with less than 100 members. In 1994, the club was requested to facilitate the Learn to Skate programs for the City of Burlington. That same year, the club name was officially changed to the Burlington Skating Centre. We are a “not for profit” organization and part of the Burlington Ice users Group. We depend on volunteers and a dedicated staff to provide Skate Canada sanctioned programs to the Burlington community.
Through the years, BSC has grown significantly to include a thriving competitive figure skating team, a large Learn to Skate and STARSkate program and is also home to NEXXICE, Canada’s most successful Synchronized Skating Team.
With the opening of pad 3 and 4 at the Appleby Ice Centre in 2010, Burlington Skating Centre now has a designated, climate controlled rink and off ice training rooms that allows us to continue to offer cutting edge programming to the citizens of Burlington.
