Six Comox Valley Skating Club skaters participated in the Vancouver Island Interclub Championships, held before the Christmas break at Fuller Lake Arena.

On the first day of the championships we had three skaters win three Bronze Medals in three different events, Jane Schaffhauser in Sr. Bronze Women, Emma Cullen in Pre-Juvenile Women, and Jade Paganelli skating up an age category in Juvenile women U14.

For the final day of the event we had Milan Husiamen, Aaliyah Melanson and Quinn Smits participating in the STARSkate categories. These are the early development categories of Figure Skating where each skater is evaluated on their individual efforts for each element skated, and then given a report card and a ribbon for their over all evaluation. In these events our skaters picked up two bronze ribbons and a merit ribbon.

After the competition Milan, Aaliyah and Quinn attended the “Long Term Athlete Development” Learn to Train seminar, where they had a chance to work in groups with nearly 40 other Vancouver Island skaters, and show off some of their better skills. CVSC coach Greg Ladret was chosen as one of the four coaches conducting this seminar.

When the skaters return to the ice in January, they will be preparing for the Vancouver Island Regional Championships, and beginning rehearsals for the April 5 Ice Show, which will include all skating club members who wish to participate, from our youngest beginners up to our senior skaters.
