Skate Canada Manitoba Sectionals to be Held November 7-8
29 Oct, 2015
Skate Canada Manitoba Sectional Figure Skating Competition is used to select the top skaters in each province for advancement to the next stage of qualifying, ultimately leading to the Canadian Figure Skating Championships.
Each Sectional Competition allows each Province (Section) to feature their talented skaters, train officials and volunteers, recognize sponsors, and provide entertaining skating for audiences at the provincial level. Skaters will travel from across the province to challenge themselves.
On the weekend of November 7th and 8th, Skate Canada Manitoba Sectional Championships are being hosted by Morris & District Skating Club & Skate Canada Manitoba. The competition will be located at the Morris Memorial Arena (380 Main St in Morris, Manitoba). Over 65 figure skaters will be competing from the Pre-Juvenile to the Junior and Senior levels for the opportunity to be the top skaters in the province. The top 4 skaters from the Pre-Novice, Novice, Junior and Senior levels will have the opportunity to continue on to Skate Canada Challenge in Edmonton, Alberta in December. For Novice, Junior and Senior skaters, this is the only opportunity to qualify for the 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 start to the biggest qualifying event of the season, with skaters hoping to make it to Skate Canada Challenge in Edmonton in December followed by the National Championships in Halifax in January of 2016," 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.”
