PA & SKATER OF THE MONTH - CONGRATULATIONS MARY & AIDAN!

SKATER OF THE MONTH - AIDAN WRIGHT

Aidan began skating when he was just three years old and joined KWSC’s CanSkate program when he was five years old so he could further develop his skills in order to play hockey.  

In 2009 Aidan started figure skating competitively and also continued to play hockey with the Kitchener Junior Rangers. When he was thirteen years old he decided to give up hockey to focus on figure skating.

Aidan was in the competitive Dance Program for four years. In 2016, he and his partner received the Gold medal in Juvenile Dance at the Ontario Provincial Championships and placed 7th in Pre-Novice Dance at the 2017 Skate Canada Challenge.

Aidan joined the Pairs program in February of 2017. In his first year of Pairs, with his partner Lily Wilberforce, they won the Gold medal at the Ontario Championships and received the Bronze medal in Pre-Novice Pairs at the 2018 Skate Canada Challenge. Aidan is currently coached by Kris Wirtz and Kristy Sargeant-Wirtz  and loving the Pairs program. He is looking forward to a successful competitive season with partner, Lily!

This September, Aidan will be going into Grade 12 at Grand River Collegiate in Kitchener. Outside of skating, Aidan enjoys spending time with family and friends, going to the movies, swimming, playing video games, travelling and photography. Aidan also spends his free time supporting and cheering for his sister Meghan as she plays goal in the hockey net.




PA OF THE MONTH - MARY LAMKY

Mary began skating at age four and chose to volunteer as a PA for KWSC because she enjoys helping younger skaters and hopes to make a positive impact on someone’s life.  Mary remembers PAs helping her as a CanSkater, so she wanted to do the same! She likes watching new skaters improve and encouraging them to do their best.

Outside of skating, Mary participates in karate, swimming, playing the piano and taking voice lessons. She likes reading, making crafts, drawing and playing with her dogs and teaching them new tricks- especially with her one year old bichon frise/shih tzu puppy, Muffin. Mary also has a thirteen year old blind black poodle.
