Beaver Valley skaters off to provincials
The Beaver Valley Skating Club (BVSC) is gearing up for a big finish on the ice with a competition, a year-end show, awards, and spring skating school all on tap.
After qualifying in the regional skate last month, Mackenzie Walts will join Taryn, Jacob and Robert Verhelst for the competition - the inaugural SuperSeries “learn-to-train” program that has been adopted across Canada.
“It’s the best figure skaters in B.C. competing, so it should be a good experience for them,” said BVSC coach Liz Iannone.
The club is also fine tuning for its dynamic finale, dubbed “Musical Memories” on Tuesday at the Beaver Valley Arena.
The performance hits the ice at 6 p.m. with all BVSC skaters putting their best blade forward as they showcase a number of great dance-skating performances. Everyone is welcome.
The club also named its Skate Canada sections nominees for achievement awards. Anna Shin was nominated as CanSkate Skater of the Year, while Walts is up for consideration for the Assistant of the Year, and Jacob Verhelst for Skate Canada’s Test Athlete award.
To top it all off, the BVSC is holding its Spring Skating School from Apr. 2-28. Offering instruction for all ages including Canskate, Canpower, Pre-junior, and Starskate.
