Navy Blue Gold Medal Competition Winner Congratulation Message Instagram Story
This competition is specially designed for skaters in our Learn to Skate classes to give them their first experience in the world of competitive skating! The competition is a relaxed, no-pressure event focused on introducing skaters to performing solo on the ice for a hometown audience and a panel of judges composed of friendly, familiar faces.
 
There are events for all Learn to Skate levels, from Snowplow to Free Skate 6 and ages 3 to 99. Skaters will compete in small groups with just their level. Every skater will receive a medal or ribbon and will get to stand on the awards podium for pictures!
