Students wanted for figure-skating classes

Raft Mountain Skating Club is looking for more people who want to learn to figure-skate

Raft Mountain Skating Club is looking for more people who want to learn to figure-skate.

The club has a new figure-skating coach this season.

Tanya Ney is a NCCP Level 2 qualified coach. She has completed 6 Figure, senior silver freeskate, gold dances and was a novice competitor. A resident of Kamloops, she comes to Clearwater with creativity, enthusiasm, and many years of coaching experience.

Eva Mortensen-Davies and Jennifer Yates, both very qualified coaches from Valleyview Skating Club, have agreed to fill in when needed.

Ice times for lessons are all on Thursday afternoon or Friday morning.

Most lessons will end with a 15-minute powerskate practice, which has proven beneficial for improving hockey skills.

Classes for the fall session began on Sept. 24 and will run for 13 weeks until Dec. 21. The spring session will begin on Jan. 3 and end 11 weeks later on Mar. 15.

 

The club holds various fundraisers and so is able to keep fees reasonable – about one-third of Kamloops.
