PA & SKATER OF THE MONTH - CONGRATULATIONS AMEILYA & JULNAR

PA of the Month - Ameilya Shuglo
Ameilya began skating at the age of 2. She became a PA because she loves to help others. She enjoys seeing the younger kids smile and their eyes light up when they have done something hard. "Skating is my favourite thing to do and I love to see others enjoy it as much I she do!"
Ameilya is a grade 5 student at a French immersion school in Stratford and she currently lives in Mitchell. Ameilya's favourite things to do are skating and synchro. In the summer, she enjoys playing fastball, spending time with friends, reading books, and hiking in Algonquin Provincial Park with her family.

Skater of the Month - Julnar Aizouki
Julnar began skating at the age of 5. She is currently skating with coach Victoria, focusing on developing her jumps. Julnar is also a member of the Dynicety Synchro team. "Last season I skated synchro for the first time, and it was a great experience. I would definitely recommend it to other skaters because it helped me see more improvement in my overall skating."
Outside of skating, Julnar enjoys writing, reading, hanging out with friends, and music. Julnar is in Grade 7 and really likes music, language, and gym. She also loves to play the piano and travel.

PA & SKATER OF THE MONTH - CONGRATULATIONS GRACE & THE DYNICETY INTERMEDIATE TEAM

PA of the Month – GRACE SMERCHINSKI
Grace began skating at the age of 3. She became a PA because she wanted to inspire young skaters the same way the PAs and coaches who taught her did while she was participating in CanSkate. She loves being greeted by their smiling faces every time she steps on the ice, it lights up her day!
In the limited time she has outside of skating, she enjoys doing many things. She loves hanging out with her friends and spending time with her siblings and family. Grace plays the violin and is an avid Greys Anatomy and Survivor fan! However, Grace says that “none of these things are as fun as skating, which is where I spend the majority of my time.”

Skater of the Month – DYNICETY INTERMEDIATE
In their debut season this team, along with Coach Rebecca Babb have surpassed all expectations. From a bumpy beginning to a provincial championship and an exciting personal best at the national championships. These skaters have come together to improve daily and prove hard work and strong team spirit pays off. These skaters are 14-17 years old and are all members of KWSC.
