Martensville Skate Club Celebrates End of Season with Ice Show

by guest

Skate Martensville held its highly anticipated annual ice show at the Martensville Sports Centre this past Sunday, March 24th, with the theme, “Ice Upon a Time.” Approximately 90 skaters of all ages took to the ice to bring beloved classic stories and fairytales to life through their entertaining performances.

The ice show featured a diverse range of performances, including solo routines and group numbers that were meticulously crafted to capture the essence of the stories they portrayed. From the classic elegance of Cinderella to the whimsical charm of Mary Poppins, the skaters transported spectators on a journey through the pages of their favourite fairytales.

“The ice show is a wonderful opportunity for our skaters to showcase their talent and creativity, while also bringing joy to our community. We are incredibly proud of all the hard work and dedication the skaters, coaches, and volunteers put into making this annual tradition a huge success,” Skate Martensville Coach Nicole Gryba stated.

In addition to the individual and group performances, Skate Martensville also showcased the talents of its two synchronized skating teams. The STAR 4 team and Adult II team wowed the audience with their precision and intricate formations, adding an extra level of excitement to an already spectacular event.

At the end of the show, Skate Martensville took the opportunity to recognize the outstanding achievements and contributions of its skaters with the presentation of year-end awards. Among the deserving recipients were:

• CanSkaters of the Year: Jaxson F., Emma K., Saskia W.
• Rising Star: Sohla W.
• Most Improved: Hunter M.
• Coaches’ Choice: Brooklyne L.
• Program Assistant: Mya R.
• Sportsmanship: Mya R.
• Kelly Novakovski Spirit of Youth: Ashlyn N.

In addition, Skate Martensville presented the Martensville Community Recreation Project (MCRP) with a $5000 cheque for the Lace ‘Em Up capital campaign, which will go towards funding the new community recreation centre in Martensville.

“We are incredibly proud to support the MCRP and their fundraising efforts by donating $5000 to the Lace ‘Em Up capital campaign. The new facility is going to be a huge asset not just for our skaters, but for many athletes in the community and we’re very excited to see the new facility when it opens later this year,” Gryba said.
