On behalf of Skate Canada it gives me great pleasure to invite you to the 2014 Skate Canada Annual Convention and General Meeting and National Coaches’ Conference.
With the hospitality of our Quebec Section and hosted in historic Quebec City, we’ll be celebrating our own history and launching the next 100 years of our annual get-together.
It’s here at the ACGM and NCC where we have the opportunity to exchange ideas, build friendships, discover new initiatives and create a future roadmap for skating. Whether on or off the ice, it’s our individual experiences that provide the basis for our sport’s growth and when those experiences are sprinkled with a passion for skating, it’s clear: Canada Skates!
At this year’s ACGM, learn how your club and members can participate in Canada Skates: The Fall Tour when Skate Canada will travel coast-to-coast to celebrate skating in communities across Canada. On tour, we’ll honour the contributions of our clubs and the legacy of our champion Alumni. Also on the tour we’ll salute the re-launch of our world renowned learn-to-skate program, CanSkate, where “only the best can bring out their best”, all to raise local and national awareness of our clubs and our programs.
Since our last annual meeting, a great deal of work has been done on creating our strategic priorities and on refreshing our organization’s vision and values, items which I want to share with you. By accentuating the joy of skating and the personal skills learned at the rink and within our programs and communities, we will focus on promoting the lifelong benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle that skating provides.
Together we’ll find ways to inspire all Canadians to embrace the joy of skating!
Sharpen your skates and join us for the 2014 Annual Convention and General Meeting and National Coaches’ Conference.
I’m already looking forward to seeing you in Québec City!
Skate Canada President
