Skate Canada Judging Promotions

Congratulations on the following Judging Promotions:

Laura Crosbie:  Section Level Referee
Jennifer Stuckless:  Senior Singles Judge

These promotions have been approved by Skate Canada and have taken these judges 8-10 years to achieve this level of officiating.  It requires clinics, written exams, judging at many, many competitions and several trips out of our province to get exposure to Junior and Senior Level Skating. These promotions show a true dedication to volunteering as an official in the sport of figure skating. Congratulations Laura & Jennifer!
