Skate Canada Challenge
Hard work and dedication are the keys to success and nothing could be more true than when describing our own Rachel LaFleche.
After qualifying at the 2013 Skate Canada Western Ontario Sectionals event, Rachel (pictured right) just returned from the 2014 Skate Canada Challenge held in Regina, Saskatchewan where she put in a terrific performance and won the bronze medal in the Novice ladies category.
Just the start to a truly wonderful experience, Rachel now moves on to one of the biggest stages in skating as she readies herself to compete at the 2014 Canadian Tire National Figure Skating Championships which will be held in Ottawa, Ontario from January 9-15, 2014.
Your skating family is truly proud of you Rachel!
John McKay Invitational
The Tillsonburg Skating Club was proudly represented at the recent John McKay Memorial Invitational which was held on November 23, 2012 and November 24, 2013.
The competition featured skaters in the STARSkate and WO categories and was held at the Tillsonburg Community Centre. Our appreciation goes out to the skaters for their wonderful performances and also to the many membership volunteers who supported the two-day event.
The results of our skaters can be found on the Competition Results webpage.
