Prospective Member Information

The New Canaan Winter Club is a family-focused community where parents and children delight in the magic of skating outdoors each November through March. Rich in history, the Club is a unique and Norman Rockwell-like setting for all ages.

The Club offers a variety of programs for skaters and players at all levels: learn-to-skate, hockey skill development, travel and house hockey, figure skating, adult hockey, skating lessons, and more. While the many classes offer a breadth of structured options, it’s the open skate times that members find most memorable. Whether it’s skating on a peaceful weekend morning, with classmates after school, or on a weekend when the ice is bustling with tweens and teens, the idyllic outdoor setting creates memories that last a lifetime.

The New Canaan Winter Club is a private club. Prospective members require the support of four or more existing members to complete their application. Each candidate should identify a proposer who will oversee the admissions process, assist with collecting three additional letters and be the point of contact with the Membership Committee. Once a proposer has been identified, the candidate should complete the online membership application and notify their proposer. For more information, click here.
