Located on the beautiful Arrow Lakes in the West Kootenay, the Nakusp Figure Skating Club is a member of the national Skate Canada organization. The club offers Pre-CanSkate, CanSkate and StarSkate programs. It strives to focus on fitness and achievement in a fun and friendly atmosphere while keeping it affordable for everyone. This non-profit organization is directed by a board of dedicated volunteers and skaters are taught by a professionally trained Skate Canada coach.
Figure skaters from five Kootenay clubs—including six from the Nakusp Figure Skating Club—will be gathering at the Nakusp arena on Saturday, December 7, 2013, to be tested in various disciplines, from partner dances to skating skills. The public is welcome to drop in any time between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to see the skaters in action.
