The Comox Valley Skating Club is presently home to three Vancouver Island Region champions.

At the recent VI Region Championships, Jane Schaffhauser won the Senior Bronze Girls event and Emma Cullen won Pre-Juvenile Girls U14.

That added two more titles to the one won by Jade Paganelli in Juvenile Girls U11 at an earlier provincial event. Jane and Emma are now off to Kelowna to compete at the “Pond to Podium” Super Series STARSkate Final.

Also representing Comox Valley at the VI Region Championships were Aaliyah Melanson, Milan Huisamen, Michael Robert, Jade Paganelli, Peyton Meiers, and Meghan Taylor.

The next big event for the skating club is the “Big Time Fun Under the Big Top Skating Extravaganza” with two performances on April 5. Tickets are available now.
