OTTAWA, ON: The Skate Canada Synchronized Skating Championships are heading back to Calgary, Alta., in 2022. The Championships will take place from February 24-27, 2022, at WinSport’s Markin MacPhail Centre.
“We are very excited to be returning to Calgary for the Skate Canada Synchronized Skating Championships in 2022. Calgary is known for its successful sporting events and we are more than confident that this event will be nothing but that,” said Debra Armstrong, CEO, Skate Canada. “With the severe level of disruption to the 2020-2021 competitive season, we are very much looking forward to Canada’s best synchronized skating teams stepping onto the ice in Calgary in 2022, showcasing their dedication and hard work for all to see.”
The 2022 Skate Canada Synchronized Skating Championships will bring approximately 40 teams and over 800 skaters from across the country to Calgary. The city most recently hosted this event in 2020.
“Calgary is excited to welcome back the Skate Canada Synchronized Skating Championship and its accompanying $2.8 million in projected economic impact,” said Jeff Daniels, Executive Director, Sport, Culture & Major Events at Tourism Calgary. “This will mark the fourth time Calgary has been selected to host the championship in the past nine years and we are thrilled to once again have Canada’s best synchronized skating teams compete at WinSport’s Markin MacPhail Centre.”
Teams will compete for national titles in senior, junior, novice, intermediate and open categories. The top two senior teams will represent Canada at the 2022 ISU World Synchronized Skating Championships in Hamilton, Ontario.
