The World Figure Skating Championships are being hosted in Montreal from the 16th to the 22nd of March 2020 at the Bell Center. One of the main objectives leading up to these championships is promotion to the local community. In partnership with Skating Quebec, Skating Canada, the city of DDO and Skating Montreal, the RSEQ GMAA is proud to offer an Initiation to Skating Playday!
What? A day-long event offered to GMAA schools that includes on-ice drills, as well as off-ice conferences with current Quebec or Canadian Team athletes.
Who? Cycle 2 (Grade 3&4) students from Lester B Pearson or English Montreal Schools (LBPSB priority will be given to schools in DDO)
Cost? The activity is being offered completely free of charge. The City of DDO and Skating Montreal will be donating the Arena space and Skating Quebec will even be providing skates and helmets to those participants who do not have their own equipment!
Students who participate will also be invited on Monday, March 16th to attend the first official practices as part of the World Championships.
How to register?
Please fill out the appropriate form and send it into the GMAA office by, Friday, November 1st. Maximum of 30 students per school will be permitted.
