Blade bunch is beholdin’

Skating group grateful for significant support received

The Castlegar Skating Club held its second annual West Kootenay Learn to Skate Seminar on Nov. 2 at the Castlegar Recreation Complex. This was an all day event packed with technique-building on-ice instruction in jumps, spins and stroking with club coaches Sabrina Hinson and Andrea Poznikoff and Kimberly Club coach Lori Stolson. Skaters received a certificate of participation and took part in an off-ice dance class led by renowned dance instructor Margo Larose.

A nutrition session with Jennifer Keirstead, Holistic Nutritionist, was included for skaters and parents. The club hosted 55 skaters, as well as Dancy Pants dress and skating accessory boutique and Blade Runner Skate Sharpening and Accessories.  We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our local businesses that made generous donations to our event:

We would like to thank the coaches, families, parents and volunteers as well as the Kootenay Region (Skate Canada), Castlegar Recreation Complex and staff for helping make this event a success again this year. We look forward to hosting again next year.
