Revelstoke figure skaters showcased their skills in the recent Okanagan Interclub Figure Skating Competition. The skaters won a total of nine medals in ranked events and delivered one gold, five silver, and two bronze-rated performances during assessed events.

“All our skaters worked very hard to prepare for this competition,” said Head Coach Nina Greschner. “I am very proud of them for their dedication and hard work that allowed them to reach their goals.”

A total of 13 senior, intermediate, and primary skaters from Revelstoke competed during the three-day event in West Kelowna that wrapped up on November 30, 2014.

“More and more of our Revelstoke skaters are participating in competitions.” said Greschner. “This is the largest group of skaters from Revelstoke that have ever competed in an event, showing that even small communities can successfully develop young skaters.”

Interested in seeing for yourself what our own local skaters can do? The Revelstoke Skating Club is hosting a ‘Merry Grinchmas’ skating event on Monday, Dec. 15, at 4:30 p.m. at the Revelstoke Forum. Come out and see the solos and special numbers with all our skating club and powerskate program skaters.

This year the Revelstoke Skating Club has continued to expand and improve its programs for both young and adult skaters with the help of a strong coaching staff under the guidance of head coach Nina Greschner. The club offers Skate Canada Pre-Canskate and Canskate plus development programs for junior, intermediate, senior and adult skaters that run September through March. The club also offers a Powerskate program that builds strong skating skills for all skaters. The Powerskate Program is accepting new registrations for the January session.
