The Fuller Lake Skating Club will be hosting its annual Skate with Santa on Dec. 12.

Attendees can expect festive fun and a spectacular show afterwards as the Skating Club’s figure skaters present solo performances they have practised since summer.

The performers range in age from six to 16, and compete in all levels from performance to pre-novice.

“This is just a chance for them to have fun and show off where they’re at,” said head coach Shannon McKinlay. “And for people to see the local talent in Ladysmith and Chemainus.”

It will also give potential new club members the opportunity to come get bitten by the skating bug.

“There are lots of areas to succeed in skating,” McKinlay said. “It’s something you can do for a long time.”

In addition to the figure skating program, the club offers the Power Skaters program, which teaches skills on the ice.

“They’re learning all the jumps and spins, and they’re part of the Skate Canada program,” McKinlay said. “They compete all over B.C. and take Skate Canada tests.”

Two Fuller Lake club members recently competed at Sections in Kelowna; Sarah Kedves in Juvenile came in 20th and Heather Robertson in Pre-Novice came in 39th.

“We are very proud of their results, as they were competing against skaters from all over our province,” McKinlay said.

The Skate with Santa is open to all Fuller Lake Skating club members and begins at 5 p.m., with the performance, open to the public, from 6 to 8 p.m.

There is no cost to watch the performance; however, attendees are asked to bring a donation for the Harvest Food Bank. For information, contact Fuller Lake Arena at 250-246-3811.
