Skate Canada Manitoba Announces Qualifying Events
3 Nov, 2017
The Skate Canada Manitoba Sectional Figure Skating Championship will select the top skaters in the province to advance to 2018 Skate Canada Challenge, ultimately leading to the Canadian Figure Skating Championships.
This event allows Manitoba to feature our skaters’ athletic abilities and showcase their grace and talent to the public. These athletes will be travelling from across the province to strive to compete for provincial titles and to achieve their personal goals.
On November 4th and 5th, the Skate Canada Manitoba Sectional Championships will be hosted by Skate Virden & Skate Canada Manitoba. The competition will be located at the Tundra Oil and Gas Place (900 5th Street South, Virden). Over 70 figure skaters will be competing from the Pre-Juvenile to the Senior levels for the opportunity to be the top skaters in the province. The 3 top skaters at the Pre-Novice and Novice levels and the top 2 at the Junior and Senior levels will have the opportunity to continue to the 2018 Skate Canada Challenge in Pierrefonds, Quebec from November 29th to December 3th, 2017. For Novice, Junior and Senior skaters, this will be the qualifying event for 2018 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships. The Canadian Pre-Novice Champions in men's, women's, pair and ice dance are determined at Skate Canada Challenge.
"Skate Canada Sectionals is the entry point for the athletes, enabling them to qualify for the 2018 Skate Canada Challenge in Pierrefonds in December followed by the National Championships in Vancouver in January. This national competition is where the 2018 Canadian Olympic Figure Skating Team will be announced," said Donna Yee, Skate Canada Manitoba Board Chair. “It is very exciting for all the skaters to experience this level of competition and to dream about someday competing on the International stage.”
