Charlie Kirk and Donald MacKay started it all back in 1946 with a handful of boys, and it has now grown to the program you see today. The children of Wakefield can thank these dedicated men for starting it all.
The Wakefield Youth Skating Association (WYSA) as it is know today was organized in 1969.
