The Castlegar Skating Club has had a very successful 2014-15 season competing and testing throughout the region with impressive results.

STARskaters competed at the East Kootenay Invitational held in Cranbrook, the West Kootenay Invitational held in Rossland and the region championships in Fernie. Castlegar skaters earned gold, silver and bronze standings for their individual freeskate solos and interpretive performances.

Throughout the season STARskaters have been preparing and taking nationally standardized Skate Canada tests. Skaters from preliminary, intermediate and senior levels tested in various skating disciplines such as freeskate, skating skills, ice dance and skating elements. Test days were held in Beaver Valley, Cranbrook, Rossland and Fernie with great results as many skaters advanced to higher testing levels.

Congratulations to all the STARSkaters. Individually, their hard work, self-discipline and dedication are reflected in their numerous achievements. Collectively, their positive club spirit shines through their support of one another.

As this year’s skating season comes to an end, the Castlegar Skating Club is busy planning and rehearsing for their annual year-end show.  STARSkaters as well as Juniors and CanSkaters will be performing on March 8 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. at the Castlegar Recreation Centre. Everyone is welcome to attend.

Additionally, on February 14, the Castlegar Skating Club participated in the fifth Annual Move-A-Thon hosted by the Castlegar Lions. Funds raised by the Skating Club were shared with the Castlegar Lions and will be put toward community projects. Thanks to all who participated and donated to this worthwhile fundraiser.
