The Nelson Skating Club has named Anne Van Dijk and Liam Malpass its CanSkate Champions.

Each season, the club’s coaches select a number of award winners within the various programs that the club offers. CanSkate Champions are selected based on who demonstrates the qualities that embody the “Spirit of a Champion” — determination, discipline, perseverance, and a positive attitude.

“Both of these skaters worked hard all season and had correspondingly high achievements,” said coach Sarah Gower. “Anne is still skating with the CanSkate program and has almost completed all six stages, while Liam is playing hockey, where he is easily one of the best skaters on the team. We are very proud of them!”

In other news, the club has now launched online registration for the upcoming January session. Register today to ensure your place!

The Nelson Skating Club is a non-profit society run by volunteers, dedicated to developing skaters for every sport including hockey, speed skating and figure skating. The Nelson Skating Club offers CanSkate, CanPowerSkate and STARSkate.
