SAANICH SKATING CLUB GOLD FEET OCTOBER, 2016
Kelly Hwang My name is Kelly Hwang and I am 13 years old. I have been skating for 5 years with the Saanich Skating Club. I’d like to thank my coaches Barb, Murray and Brenda for being awesome coaches. I am going to work towards getting my gold feet in dance and freeskate.
Madelaine Cail I've been skating since I was 7 years old and I started skills about 3 years ago. I'm so happy to have completed my Gold skills after just learning them after a month. Skills has been a great way for me to improve my footwork and timing. This has been an incredible skating year and I hope that every skater has the chance to feel what it's like to have finished all their skills. Finally, I'd like to thank my coaches for teaching me my skills and improving my skating abilities.

|Shannon and Krystal with coach Rae Anne|
Krystal Moore (Janicki) passed her Gold Skills in April 2014. Krystal started skating at the age of 6 and won many competitions along the way. When she was in her teens, she found a new passion and that was horses. She took a few years off to work with them and then her love for skating brought her back to the ice when she was a young adult. Krystal is currently working on her Silver Interpretive and will continue to skate as long as possible! Krystal also thanks her long-time coach Rae Anne Hesketh along with her family and friends for their support and encouraging words for her to continue skating.
Blake Strachan – Gold Feet Skills
Completing his gold skills this past summer was a goal he set out for himself and achieved after working hard and believing he could master it!
Blake is now in his first year at UVIC and is eager to take any opportunity to spend even just a few minutes on the ice enjoying what he likes to do most SKATE!
Thanks to the Campbell River Skating Club for all the support and a special thanks to Blake’s coach Jannine Ranniger, who also believed he could do it! Blake would like to mention that without the love and support from his Mom and Dad none of this would have been possible!
Mairin Sheilds Brown was 8 years old when she joined the Canskate program with the Campbell River Skating Club and has loved it since the first day she cut an edge! Every year Mairin balances her sports both on and off the ice. In the spring, she participated in the provincial Track and Field Event and took part in the “Summer Provincial Games 2014” placing 7th in “Triple Jump” in the province! We are very proud of her! At school, Mairin continues to excel as a “Straight A Student” in Grade 10 and has volunteered as a Canskate Program Assistant for the past three years. In April, she passed her Gold Skills and continues to work hard to master her goals! A big thank you goes out to Mairin’s coach Rae Anne Hesketh, for encouraging her to reach her goals and never look back!
Leana Tremblay is 14 years old and in Grade 9 at Southgate Middle School in Campbell River. She has been skating since she was 5 years old and started with the Port McNeill Figure Skating Club. Leana has been skating with the Campbell River Skating Club for the last 5 years. In 2007 she qualified to compete in skills at the Pacific Star Skate. She loves skating her skills and was thrilled to have passed her Gold Skills this spring!
Leana enjoys helping other skaters in the Canskate program and has been doing so for the last 7 years.
