Manitoba Figure Skaters headed to Hazelridge Manitoba for STARSkate Championships
28 Mar, 2018
The Hazelridge Skating Club and Skate Canada Manitoba will host the 2018 Skate Canada Manitoba STARSkate Figure Skating Championships March 3 & 4, 2018 at the Hazelridge Sport Complex in Hazelridge Manitoba.
Hundreds of young figure skaters competed throughout January and February at six STARSkate regional competitions across the province. These skaters will congregate in Hazelridge to perform against other Manitoba skaters at their level. This competition will provide skaters the opportunity to demonstrate skills they have been learning throughout the year. Each skater is judged on skill and content based on the stage they are learning. Each stage of this national program emphasizes key skills such as turns, stroking, jumps, spins, and different aspects of performance that have been designated by figure skating experts as necessary for development and progression in the sport. All skaters began Skate Canada’s CanSkate, Learn-to-Skate program and have moved into the STAR 1-5 program. STAR is where figure skating begins! Skaters will also skate in higher levels including STAR 6 to 10 as well as Pre-Juvenile and Juvenile.
Shauna Marling, Skate Canada Manitoba’s Executive Director states that this is a very special event. The Manitoba Men’s and Ladies Provincial Champions will be named in the following events:
Pre-Juvenile Under 11
Pre-Juvenile Under 13
Juvenile Under 12, and
Juvenile Under 14.
Come to Hazelridge and see our young skaters in action! What an opportunity to see our future skating STARS!
