The Yellowknife Skating Club (YKSC) is a Skate Canada Sanctioned Club. The YKSC is celebrating 44 years of dedicated service to the citizens of Yellowknife. The Club was founded on December 11th, 1968, known then as Yellowknife Figure Skating Club. The word "Figure" has been dropped to reflect the changing attitudes that 'skating is a sport that can be enjoyed by all; no matter their age, gender, fitness level or personal interest.' The first Board of Directors included such long time Yellowknifers' as Mickey Brown and Ruth Spence.
Help us continue this great tradition!
