Important Announcement re: Pacific StarSkate Championships

                       IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT


November 30, 2010


To our members in the BC/YT Section


Several years ago we were mandated by Skate Canada to have a section qualifying competition for skaters advancing to the National STARSkate Championships.  It was at that time that we offered the Pacific STARSkate Championship.


Currently Skate Canada no longer has this National Championship, so we are no longer in need of a competition where skaters must qualify.


This coming season we are introducing the Pond to Podium Super Series, for both STARSkate and Competitive skaters.  This series gives every interested skater the opportunity to compete in freeskate, and see how they compare to other skaters in our Section.  Every Super Series competition will also offer Interpretive events if skaters wish to compete in that discipline.  With the Super Series, there will be far more opportunities for many more skaters as the skaters will not have to qualify to participate.


At this time we are announcing that the 2011 Pacific STARSkate Championships being held in Cranbrook in March 2011 will be the last one held.  We thank all of our previous hosts of this competition for providing a wonderful experience for our skaters and we look forward to the start of our Pond to Podium Super Series.
