Aldergrove Black Ice Intermediate Synchronized Skating team competing at the Skate Canada National Synchronized Skating Championships

The Aldergrove Black Ice Intermediate Synchronized Skating team will be competing at the Skate Canada National Synchronized Skating Championships being held at Burnaby’s Bill Copeland Arena from February 20 to 22.

This is only the third time this event has been held in B.C. in 30 years. Most of the championships have been held in Ontario and Quebec over the years.

The Aldergrove team has only been together for five months in this new category, but have worked hard together and are ready for this rare opportunity to skate at this exciting event. Teams from across Canada will be in attendance and the Senior Nexus team, which are World Silver medalists, will also be at this competition.

The Aldergrove club was given the honour of being asked to have their Beginner 1 team skate for the Opening Ceremonies on Thursday, Feb. 20. This team won Gold medals at the BC/YK Championships as well as Gold medalist at the Mountain Regionals that were held in Lethbridge, Alberta, at the end of January.
