Sharon’s Story:

Both of my parents have always been involved in figure skating throughout my whole life with my mother being a volunteer extraordinaire! And my dad being a music technician right up until months of his passing in 2009. While at some point all 5 of us kids skated and competed, my older sister stuck with it the longest eventually becoming a professional coach, coaching for almost 30 years before retiring in the fall of 2009. So you see skating is in the blood!

In the years between being a skater and being a parent I volunteered helping the club during carnivals and competitions. But it wasn’t until my daughter turned 2 and they would allow her to register in Pre-School skating that my volunteering in the sport became one of the biggest passions in my life.

With both of my girls finished with their skating and moving on to other exciting pastimes I remain passionate about skating and volunteering in any way that I can.

Congratulations to Sharon Dahl who will be receiving the Sport BC Presidents Award this year!! The ceremony happens on Feb 24th! As we all know, Sharon volunteers countless hours for our Sport and so it is very fitting that she receives this award!
