I will soon look into winter indoor skating options. As the Scooter’s Indoor Speed Club is ceasing to operate, volunteers have stepped-in to help organize an indoor program on behalf of TISC.
Skating would likely take place at the Scooter’s Roller Palace in Mississauga either on Sunday mornings or Monday evenings, with costs ranging between $12 and $22 per practice per person. The only significant change from recent years is the skating will be organized through the Toronto Inline Skating Club.
I will look at meeting with Scooter’s management to discuss exact cost for renting their facility and what days & times are available.
Please let me know by October 28th by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you will commit to skating with TISC at Scooter’s at the price-point and times I mentioned.
Once I have heard from everyone and after I have met with Scooter’s management, I will announce if indoor skating will take place this winter. I will then ask for your commitment (registering with TISC for the winter, paying floor fees), and I will also provide details (start date, which days we’ll be skating, who the programming will be geared toward, exact costs).
The final cost per practice for each skater will be calculated once we know the final number of committed skaters, so it’s important you let me know by October 28th if you will be skating with us this winter.
ALSO: We need help to organize and manage the Club and practices & programs. Please let me know if you would like to become involved as an instructor, coach, or volunteer in other capacities.

Can you believe skaters have been enjoying skating with TISC since 1991?! Thank you all for coming out and supporting TISC’s 27th season!! Even though 2017 was a slower year in terms of races and events, TISC skaters took advantage of practices, outings, and events & competitions in Quebec, Minnesota, New York, and Georgia!
If you’re considering coming out and skating with TISC when operations resume either this Winter or next Spring, you’ll never really know where this great sport will take you. Whether you’re a new skater or someone who’s been thinking of making a comeback after taking a break, you’ll get to skate in an engaging and challenging program. You might make new friends and possibly even make some rivals, perhaps travel to events throughout North America as some TISC members love to do, or hopefully you’ll find your calling and become involved and volunteer & help support and build this great club!
Of course TISC is always looking for volunteers as this club cannot exist without volunteer efforst. We currently have a need for individuals to help coach and with instruction, organize events (races, outings), promote and get the word out to as many people as possible to raise awareness and invite skaters out to give TISC a shot!
Keep in touch – and keep an eye out as we’re looking to have our Year End Party & Awards at some point in November and we will be looking into keeping you on wheels by running an indoor Winter skating program.

Come out and skate with the Toronto Inline Skating Club. You’ll sharpen up your skating skills, quench your thirst for racing and prepare for competitions, and network with skaters so you can skate some more!
Many of TISC’s members get together to skate outside of practices at Max Ward loop near Dixie and Eglinton and at the Hamilton Beach Trail.

Warm wishes and speedy skating to TISC members who will lace up their skates and race in next weekend’s Northshore Inline Marathon in Duluth. A number of TISC members are ready to race and take on the beautiful scenic 42kms spanning Minnesota’s Two Harbors to Duluth.
