Summer Holiday skating announcement
There will be NO SKATING at the Ross Peers Soham until 7th September. This is due to the summer holidays and attending numbers being very low during this time. A further announcement will be made shortly regarding our sessions at Ely Paradise Centre. Please keep an eye on our website here about any further news regarding this.
Website Booking System
Due to rising costs for the booking system we were running and fees for taking online payments, we have made the difficult decision to stop our online booking system and taking payments online. We understand the booking system was easy to use but moving forwards and with rising costs, we were unable to make this work.
We will now be only accepting cash payments on the day of the session you attend and payments via BACS. Our bank details can be provided on the day of your session by one of our team.
CARSC are now a registered charity! This means we are able to apply for funding which we were not previously. A huge thank you to Diane who has spent so much time filling out big forms and other paperwork to get us to where we are now.
We applied to the National Lottery Community Fund for a grant to allow us to keep our costs low for skaters and to assist in paying for hall hire fees. We were successful in applying for this and were awarded £9,999 by the National Lottery Community Fund for our project!! This is amazing for us as a small club and will greatly assist skaters/parents. Following this, we have also been awarded a grant from Ely City Council!
CARSC 2023 and Competitions
Competition season for 2023 is in full swing! We have had a good year so far with the Figures and Free Championships as well as the Dance Championships. A big well done to all skaters who have competed so far in 2023. Some amazing results with lots to work on for next year, so everyone should be very proud.
Skater Dads Ready to Roll! CARSC Fundraiser
Two of our skater dads will soon be taking to the floor at Spectrum Competition this weekend coming! They are competing to raise funds for the club, skating with their daughters. So far we have raised an amazing amount of money and they have both worked very hard training for the competition. As a club we are so proud of how far they have come and cant wait to see them out on the floor at the weekend.
