Raft Mountain Skating Club held a test day on Monday, March 23, for the first time in four years.

Vienna“Test days are essential for building skill and encouraging advancement in all disciplines,” said club spokesperson Jennifer Wadlegger.

Skate Canada preliminary to senior bronze dances were tested, as were skating skills, free-skate, and interpretive programs.

“Our test day ran for 4 1/2 hours with the regional judge, Cheyenne Irvine, evaluating,” Wadlegger said. “We had six Star-skaters testing with some skaters testing up to six tests.”

Canoe Valley (Valemount) joined the test day at the Sportsplex in Clearwater as well.

 

“The skaters from Raft Mountain Skating Club did extremely well and are looking forward to holding another test day in November of 2015,” the club spokesperson said.
