** ATTENTION GROUP B, C & D Skaters **

Please check with your primary coach before registering for a competition!

 

To Clubs, Coaches and Skaters of Vancouver Island Region: 

 

We really appreciate the Racquet Club of Victoria Skating Club for offering the ice they had booked for an ice show to allow our island skaters to compete here on the island at a live event.  The arrangement we worked out with the Section to provide this opportunity to island skaters was that the Vancouver Island FunSkate Competition would be for Starskate events and Special O only and also that we would encourage our skaters to also attend the Super Series Vancouver Island event in Parksville April 1 – 3 which is only two weeks later.  We have had many enquiries as to adding Pre-Juv and Juvenile events to the schedule but with VISI only being two weeks later and the opportunity for those skaters to go to Kelowna or to be a part of the virtual event we are not able to include those events with our event.  Remember those who register for the Section events can not enter the Star 7 or 9 events at the island event and reverse is true.  The announcement for the island event is now posted on the section website (AND below this message) for those wishing to register.
