Skater of the Month - SEPTEMBER

A little bit about Aiden...

Aiden is a 16-year-old dual competitive skater who started skating at the age of three. Aiden competes in Novice Ice Dance for KWSC with his partner Nicole Bolender, as well as in Intermediate Synchro with Team Unity from Tavistock. Aiden is coached by Paul MacIntosh, Rebecca Babb, and Tyler Morris. In 2019, Aiden was able to compete at nationals for BOTH of his disciplines.

 

Aiden started ice dancing 8 years ago and synchro 5 years ago. When Aiden isn't skating, he is working at his family's dairy farm where he spends most of my time milking cows, driving tractors, or playing with the family's many dogs and cats. In his free time, Aiden enjoys watching the Raptors and Blue Jays, and playing video games.

CanSkate COVID-19 Protocols for FALL 2020 REGISTRATION

Due to COVID-19 updated protocols, we can only welcome back those skaters who have passed CanSkate Stage 2 or equivalent. However, Stage 1 skaters can join if they are able to get up on their own and manoeuvre without hands-on assistance. 

Currently, in an effort to protect our coaches and skaters, KWSC COVID-19 policies are strictly following physical distancing requirements from public health. Therefore, coaches are not able to physically assist skaters in any manner, including helping children/skaters up after they have fallen down. 
 

Please review the Stage 1 qualifications below to determine if your child/skater is eligible for Fall 2020 Programs.

STAGE 1 QUALIFICATIONS*:

Skaters MUST be able to do the following:

  • Get up on their own (after falling down)
  • Forward push/glide sequence
  • Forward 2-foot glide
  • Forward 2-foot sit glide
  • Backward 2-foot skating/walking
  • Backward 2-foot glide
  • 2-foot Turn
  • 2-foot Jump

If you determine that your child/skater can do some of these skills and are able to get up on their own from the ice, then please go ahead and register  Please note that if the coach determines your child cannot get up on their own without requiring the coach to physically assist your child, then your child may need to be removed from the program in order to protect the health and safety of both the coach and the child. This decision will be made by the coach after the second session on the ice. If your child cannot complete the program, KWSC will credit your account for the remaining sessions.   

*Stage 1 qualifications come from Skate Canada's Report Cards. They are not determined by KWSC.
