Con­cep­tion Bay North Skat­ing Club

The Compass - - COMPASS -

2013 marks the 40th an­niver­sary of the Con­cep­tion Bay North Skat­ing Club. With over 200 mem­bers, the Club is one of the largest clubs in the prov­ince. Skat­ing out of both the Bay Arena in Bay Roberts and S.W. Moores Me­mo­rial Sta­dium in Har­bour Grace, skaters come from as far away as Old Per­li­can and Sal­monier. The Club is a mem­ber of Skate Canada and all skaters are reg­is­tered mem­bers of this na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tion.

The club of­fers a wide va­ri­ety of pro­grams - CanSkate and Ac­cel­er­ated Canskate pro­grams for those learn­ing to skate, the more ad­vanced Star pro­gram for both re­cre­ational and com­pet­i­tive skaters as well as Ice Dance. Each year, skaters work on badges and tests and many go to In­ter­club, Divi­sional, Pro­vin­cial and Sec­tional com­pe­ti­tions. This sea­son the Club will host the East­ern Divi­sional Com­pe­ti­tion in Jan­uary 2014 at the Bay Arena and the Re­gional In­ter­club com­pe­ti­tion in Fe­bru­ary 2014 at S.W. Moores Me­mo­rial Sta­dium.

The Club has a large syn­chro­nized skat­ing pro­gram with teams com­pet­ing last year in the Be­gin­ner 1, Ele­men­tary and Pre Novice cat­e­gories. The Ele­men­tary team, Ice An­gels, won the pro­vin­cial Syn­chro com­pe­ti­tion this year with 16 skaters bring­ing home gold!
