Skate Canada Manitoba Sectional Figure Skating Championship Announces Details
29 Oct, 2018
The Skate Canada Manitoba Sectional Figure Skating Championship will select the top skaters in the province to advance to the 2019 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 3rd and 4th, the Skate Canada Manitoba Sectional Championships will be hosted by the Morden Figure Skating Club & Skate Canada Manitoba. The competition will be located at the Access Event Centre (111-D Gilmour S). 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 2019 Skate Canada Challenge in Edmonton Alberta from November 28th to December 2nd, 2018. For Novice, Junior and Senior skaters, this will be the qualifying event for 2019 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 2019 Skate Canada Challenge in Edmonton in December followed by the National Championships in Saint John NB in January," 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.”
