That’s right! We’re baaack! Actually, TISC never went away. We’ve just been waiting, and planning, and waiting. And finally, we strile! We will be able to roll!!!
With the help of several meetings, a lot of paper work, safety precautions, permit and insurance requirements, sorting through a lot of confusion and uncertainty, the TISC Board of Directors is pumped up and supper happy to let you know we will be rolling again on the 400-meter track at Father Redmond (near Lake Shore and Kipling in Etobicoke (Toronto)) starting Monday August 2nd at 6pm.
Yes, things WILL be different, but skating itself will reign supreme!
- Skating will take place on Mondays for all of August and September at 6pm, weather permitting
- COVID-19 prevention measures and keeping everyone safe will influence how the skating program is delivered
- Membership fees will be structured differently than in the past, more info coming later
- There will be NO Sport Accident insurance through TISC. Those who skate with TISC (members, visitors, guests) are responsible for all costs related to injuries and sport accident sustained during and related to TISC activities and programming
- All wishing to participate will be required to 1) pre-register online (the form should be online on our website late next week or over the weekend of July 31/ August 1); a couple of days before practice), 2) pay all fees (we take Paypal), 3) complete sign-in which includes a health check and attestation related to COVID-19, 4) as usual have your skates and all required protective equipment and be ready to rock on skates
For 2021, TISC will only skate on Mondays. We used to use the 200-meter track at Lake Shore and Brown’s Line. But if you go there and check out the track for yourself, you’ll see all gates are locked and there are portables that have been installed directly on the track!
We hope to have full and complete details online, with the site (mostly) updated by next weekend (July 31/ August 1). Stay tuned, and keep on touch on TISC’s Facebook page or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org

Hello skaters! TISC is hoping to get rolling at some point this year, but there is no clarity (yet) about when we will be able to resume operations and start skating.
Some skaters will be meeting to skate soon, and these meetings are NOT TISC organized or sanctioned events. We are simply raising awareness of group skates, practices, training opportunities, and meetings. Coach Larry Magloire, long-time TISC member since 1993, will be hosting skating practices in Brampton at Bramalea Secondary School (510 Balmoral Drive, Brampton, Ontario, L6T-1W4) on Saturday mornings at 9:30am.
Please note this is not learn-to-skate. Those wishing to attend should have the ability to start and stop rolling, be well balance on skates without toppling over, be able to turn right and left, can come to a stop and control speed, and be in general good control of their skating, and have basic knowledge of how to skate with others (drafting, matching strides, stepping in and out of the pack (group/ peloton), how to come in contact with other skaters, how to pass and be passed and general track awareness).
See his message below, and let Larry know that you’ll be coming (if you don’t have his contact information, then let us know at email@example.com –
“Hope everyone is looking forward to enjoying the warm weather and staying safe. I am planning to be at the Bramalea Secondary high school track for 9am each Saturdays starting June 5 to July 31. Practice starts at 9:30am. The track surface is very smooth and flat, great for practicing technique. Reaching out to those who want track time if road skating is not available in your area. I am not skating the next couple months due to long term ankle recovery but as Coach, training programs are available and it would be great to see the skating community once more. Hope you can make it, weather permitting. Washrooms are not available. Please let me know to expect you. Bicycle helmet, wrist guards are mandatory. Knee pads and elbow pads are optional. Bring water! Thanks and have a safe day.”

The Toronto Inline Skating Club has been on “standby mode” since the onset of the Covid-19 Pandemic in early 2020.
TISC’s operations and programming are dependent on requirements and permissions from venue owners (City of Toronto, School Boards) as well as local, regional, Provincial, and National health and sporting authorities.
TISC’s Board of Directors is looking at options for return to skating in 2021. This return will depend on whether the aforementioned authorities make it possible for TISC to resume operations and run skating programs.
At this point, there is no start-up date for TISC resuming activities, since the requirements and restrictions are a function of the Covid-19 Pandemic, and the situation is very fluid and unpredictable.
New for 2021- No RSC Registration, No Sport Accident Insurance: In the event TISC is able to offer skating programming to members in 2021, TISC members will not be required to register with Roller Sports Canada (RSC). RSC is not currently accepting registrations, and RSC will not offer Sport Accident insurance (for practices/ training and competition) to registrants once it accepts registrations. Insurance policies of any type (including Sport Accident insurance policies) are not currently and have never been included with TISC membership. TISC members are free to purchase their own Sport Accident insurance policy.
Reminder: AGM April 18th: This is a reminder that the Toronto Inline Skating Club’s Annual General Meeting will be held April 18th at 5pm. Details will be published shortly. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

The Toronto Inline Skating Club will postpone its start to the 2020 season indefinitely after giving consideration to advisories and recommendations from Health, Government, and Sporting authorities regarding the COVID 19 Pandemic.
Once activities and gatherings such as TISC’s are cleared to resume by Health, Government, and Sporting authorities, TISC start-up plans will be announced.
The Toronto Inline Skating Club is well positioned to shelter this challenge, will not incur any financial losses as a results of this pause, and has excellent leadership and committed volunteers who are eager to get rolling.
It is important that we all do our part to protect all in our communities and beyond. You can use this website link to access some resources you might find particularly useful:
We are all looking forward to rolling together on the road, track, trails, and paths.

The Toronto Inline Skating Club held its 2019 Annual General Meeting on November 30th 2019. A budget for 2020 was approved and the Board of Directors to lead TISC into the new season was acclaimed. The new Board, which has the same composition as last years’ Board, is working hard on planning a beautiful 2020 season!
2020 will be busy and action packed, possibly opening up with indoor skating starting in January, followed by outdoor skating starting in April for which the Board is looking at new venues. Two Toronto-area events are in the works, planned to be held on the 400-meter track. Summer events will include the Canadian Champs in Halifax on August 8-9, the New York 100k on August 23rd, the Canadian Marathon Champs on September 12th!
