Spring 2022 Newsletter

The JDFSC skaters have had a very busy, fun and productive spring!

StarSkate was finally allowed to compete in person in our VI Funskate event held in Esquimalt with so many great results. This was a great event experience for all the skaters and a good first in person event since before Covid.


We held our own year end showcase on the last day of our ice at JDF arena in March.


The skaters were all able to do their solos on cleared ice/competition style with an audience present for the first time in such a long time! These skaters were presented with Bravo Certificates for their wonderful performances.

We had our Star 6-Gold Assessments early March and then again in early May and it was great to be able to have a Skate Canada Official in person at these events. The skaters had great results at both of these along with the Star 1-5 Assessments that have been ongoing for our skaters. Congratulations to Madison Simoneau on passing her Skate Canada Gold Skills!!! Star and Competitive skaters competed at the Super Series Vancouver Island competition in Parksville in early April and their awards were mailed to us and we did presentations on ice at the Westhills arena.

Great performances and results skaters. A detailed list of their results is at the end of this newsletter.



Our Canskate sessions at spring were full with a waiting list for both days and our Pre-Star Group A session doubled in numbers with many skaters passing ribbons and badges and also enjoying the theme days for spring.

All JDFSC skaters received congratulations certificates during the last week of spring ice. Many skaters competed in Vancouver on the May long weekend at the Super Series Victoria Day event. Awards were presented on site at this event which was nice for the skaters as it is the first time in a long time due to Covid restrictions. We are enjoying the Covid restrictions being relaxed this spring but still respect each other in the facility as we are back to a "new normal" in the arena.

The skaters are back on the ice for some June sessions and look forward to summer ice back at the JDF arena.

Happy Spring to All...let's bring on summer! 😊
