Connaught Skating Club hosting simulation at oval

Following on the heels of a successful Competitive Elements Competition at Minoru Arenas last month, Richmond’s Connaught Skating Club will be holding a simulation from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday at the Richmond Olympic Oval.

Unlike previous simulations, this one will be unique in that it is being held in conjunction with the BC Coast Judges Training Clinic. This is also the first time in B.C. that a figure skating judging clinic has used a club simulation as a training tool to develop its officials.

"We are very excited and proud of our athletes as this opportunity clearly shows our reputation for developing elite skaters," said the Connaught Skating Club's athlete administrator Kay Churches. "This is beneficial to our club because the skaters get the chance to perform in front of these professionals and hear feedback that they can then implement into their training."
