Northern BC Centre for Skating
The Northern BC Centre for Skating operates year-round ice skating programs. The proposition for a centre for skating excellence in Prince George was finalized in 2012 when Executive Director for Skate Canada BC/YT Section, Ted Barton, officially announced its formation. The Centre was founded primarily by members of the Spruce City Skating Club, in existence since 1977, when they merged with membership from a different club,[which?] including several coaches. In 2013 the Club officially changed its name to the Northern BC Centre for Skating.
