Welcome to Lake Bonavista Figure Skating Club!
We offer the learn to skate programs Pre-CanSkate, CanSkate, Pre-Power, CanPowerSkate and figure skating programs Pre-STARSkate, STARSkate and CompetitiveSkate all sanctioned by Skate Canada in the south east community of Lake Bonavista, Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Skate Canada Skating Programs are designed to allow individuals to participate in skating for life. Our programs provide participants with basic skating skills, advanced figure skating techniques, test and competitive opportunities, awards and incentives and the chance to learn new skills in a fun and positive environment.
Our professional coaches have coached Provincial Champions, Challenge Competitors and National and International Competitors.
Our club is run by dedicated parent volunteers who provide their knowledge, skills and precious time to ensure our skaters reach their full potential at every level.
Cooper Feser had a very memorable first trip to Sectionals—he won the Men’s Juvenile U12 event! Cooper started skating with CJ Fernet in the STARSkate program when he was 6 years old. He skates 9 hours a week and trains in off ice classes almost 4 hrs each week. He says it can be challenging to manage such a busy schedule, but he is committed. In fact, Cooper hopes to land his double flip or lutz before Christmas! When he’s not training, Cooper is a regular 10 year old who likes to play video games and just relax!
The Leading Edge Series was introduced to the Section this year. Points are accumulated throughout the season, culminating in medal presentations to the top scorers. LBFSC is proud to have 3 skaters recognized as medalists in this series. Congratulations to James Keenan who came in 1st in Pre-Juvenile U11, Cooper Feser who came in 1st in Juvenile U12 & Michael Keenan who came in 3rd in Juvenile U14! These boys have also been named to Alberta’s Junior Development Team for this year as a result of their achievements at Sectionals where Cooper placed 1st, and James and Michael both won bronze medals. As well, congratulations to Juan David Castillo who won the bronze medal in the Novice Men’s event at Sectionals.
