Grand Opening of The Rotation Room in Kitchener Waterloo at RIM Park!

June 3, 2023
Over the past few months, KWSC staff have worked alongside Jonathan Mills and the TRR staff to bring a Rotation Room to Kitchener-Waterloo. This new addition to our facility will greatly benefit skaters from KWSC and surrounding skating Clubs. Our aim is to support the skill development and performance of skaters by offering harness lessons and spinners as a new element to skater training models.
To celebrate the new Rotation Room in Kitchener Waterloo, KWSC will be hosting a full day seminar with some amazing special guests and presenters!
Located inside the main doors at RIM Park entrance (door A), in front of The KWSC Office, from 9:00-9:30am.
Groupings and a detailed group schedule will be assigned and provided to you when you check-in at the Registration Desk.
