Welcome to Lake Bonavista Figure Skating Club!
WE WELCOME FAMILIES FROM ALL COMMUNITIES
We offer learn to skate programs Pre-CanSkate, CanSkate, Pre-Power, CanPowerSkate and figure skating programs Pre-STARSkate, STARSkate and CompetitiveSkate all sanctioned by Skate 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.
We are so proud of James Keenan who represented LBFSC at the 2018 Sectionals and was crowned the Pre-Juvenile U11 Sectionals Champion. In addition to winning his event, James was also the winner of the Leading Edge series for 2018!
James started skating when he was 4 but focused on figure skating when he was 6 years old. He is a 6th-grade student in Turner Valley but comes to train at LBFSC with Coach Barb Westhaver 3 hours each week. James’ is a natural athlete who is interested in many sports. In fact, he also participates in competitive trampoline and tumbling at Airborne in Okotoks.
Though James had a wonderful skate, he is already looking forward to next year’s Sectionals where he is hoping he will land a double axel! Congratulations on your achievements, James!
