Welcome to the Tri Area Skating Club

Where Success Begins


Fun, Achievement, and Fitness: these are the goals of the Tri Area Skating Club.

Whether it be standing up and gliding on skates for the first time, landing that first triple salchow jump,

skating to increase fitness, or improving technique for hockey and ringette,

the Tri Area Skating Club has programs designed to assist skaters in achieving these goals.

We are a family-oriented club with programs for all ages and skill levels.

The club was formed in 2013 when the Stony Plain and Parkland Skating Clubs joined forces

to offer families a wider range of Learn-To-Skate and competitive skating programming.

Affordable and convenient lessons are offered at the Glenn Hall Arena in Stony Plain

and the Tri Leisure Centre in Spruce Grove.

We are a Skate Canada sanctioned program with nationally trained NCCP Certified coaching staff.
