In August, Columbia Valley Skating Club ran their annual summer skating camp. The camp provided skaters with 4 hours of ice time, with two devoted coaches, Regan Taylor (Geiger) and Skyanne Tillotson. The camp was a great opportunity for skaters to improve, have fun, and be with their skating friends. Skaters developed a solid foundation in skating fundamentals while enjoying their days at the rink. The coaches were patient, and committed to helping the skaters attain their skating goals.
Following the camp, the Columbia Valley Skating Club is starting off their new season with Pre-CanSkate, CanSkate and CanPowerSkate sessions starting Monday, October 2nd running through mid-December that will allow skaters to learn and develop new strengths and skills in a fun and friendly way. Lessons are taught by our professional coaches, Denise Reid, Marni Kreutzer and Skyanne Tillotson, in a ratio of 1 coach per 10 skaters, along with Program Assistants (volunteer STARSkaters trained to help out). Our program is designed to ensure skaters are always on the move, learning new elements and strengthening old skills to ensure the learning environment is fun and active. Skaters are assessed regularly and move up to the next level when ready, as determined by the coaches. For more information about our programs, please visit our website at: https://www.columbiavalleyskatingclub.com.
In addition to the season start up, CVSC will also be offering a free skate day on Monday, September 25th, from 4 to 4:45 p.m., which will allow the kids to try out our programs and meet the coaches. Please send your child with a CSA approved helmet and skates. The coaches will be available to answer any figure skating questions you may have. We are looking forward to a great season ahead!
