Welcome to the SRA Ice Season 2018-2019
Welcome to another ice season at SRA! Just because the pool is closed, doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of fun activities at Southampton. Your membership includes full use of the ice rink, you just have to sign a Waiver Form and a Passcode Agreement. This can be done at the Lesson Sign-Up and Used Skate Sale (see dates below) or in the SRA office. We have ice hockey clinics, figure skating lessons for all ages including adults, and open skate times. There will also be a couple of weekend Ice Socials that the whole family can enjoy. Check out dates and times for everything on the SRA Ice Calendar found at sra-fun.org.
Ever dreamed of driving a Zamboni? Now is your chance. Our rink is almost entirely volunteer run. Ice making, ice maintenance, and fundraisers are all run by our members. For more information on how you can volunteer, call Maja Bality at (804) 938-3682.
Allison Ezzi returns for her 11th year coaching figure skating at SRA. She is from Massachusetts and loves everything skating. She competed throughout her childhood including on a synchronized team at Michigan State University. Her coaching reflects her ice career as she teaches with love, precision and creativity. Thank you Allison for your talent and leading SRA in the art and joy of skating. We also welcome back Chris Hogan, Leisa Weatherford and Kelly Gregory.
Used Equipment Sale
Bring in your old skates, skating apparel, or hockey equipment to sell. Tag it with your name, contact info and asking price and put it on the table in the clubhouse. Items can be dropped off or viewed for purchase at lesson sign-ups or any time the office/clubhouse is open.
Lessons and Lesson Sign-Ups
Skating lessons are an important component of our ice program. Children as young as three years of age can safely learn how to skate, fall and stop on the ice. Skating can be a fun, family activity! We offer a wide variety of classes on different days throughout the week. For those interested in hockey, we will have our ever popular hockey clinic on Sundays at 2:00.

An ice social is a time for members to get together at the rink to enjoy skating, music, hot cocoa, and snacks. It’s a great way to socialize and get a winter boost of SRA spirit! It’s a potluck, so bring your favorite snack to share and prepare for lots of fun.
