Volunteering: The Ultimate Game-Changer for Momo Kano Podolsky

Momo Kano Podolsky’s ten-year journey through sport started with taking a chance.

Let’s rewind back to Skate Canada International (SCI) 2013, where Japanese figure skating star Yuzuru Hanyu was set to compete in Saint John, New Brunswick. Kano Podolsky had always been a casual figure skating fan, tuning in at the Olympics and watching well-known household names like Kurt Browning, Elvis Stojko and Bourne and Kratz, but she had never been involved in the sport until she applied to become a volunteer.

Kano Podolsky, who had already purchased tickets to watch the competition, ended up seeing a recruitment posting from Skate Canada for event volunteers and applied before immediately regretting it. Little did she know that initial regret would result in new friendships, a new perspective on sport and the opportunity to use skills and participate in a job she had always been curious about – interpreting.

Her application was initially denied, before she was contacted by the events team to gauge her interest in volunteering in the Media Centre. Kano Podolsky decided to take the plunge, packed her bags and headed to Saint John, arriving the day before competition.

Ten years and 23 events later, Kano Podolsky says that she has learned what it is like to be part of an organizing committee, how to act around athletes and the different duties that come with her important role. “Seeing the amount of behind the scenes work that is involved, how many people are involved. There are so many different pieces and that’s really exciting. You don’t realize these things when you are just a spectator. It’s great to be a part of.”

We asked Podolsky some of her key memories from over the years. Not surprisingly, her first day topped the list. It was the last day before competition, and she was getting a tour of the premise when she passed by Patrick Chan in the interview area of the media centre. Kano Podolsky tried taking a photo only to be told that it was not allowed, learning right there and then what it meant to be working behind the scenes. To this day, her favourite event remains Skate Canada International 2019, which was hosted in Kelowna, B.C.

“It was a huge event; it was totally sold out; any event with Yuzuru Hanyu was sold out and the fans were wild. The Winnie the Poohs were raining down and Nam Nguyen was skating after Yuzuru. Everyone was still trying to pick up the Poohs so he waited quite a long while, then he had the skate of his life. It was the most exciting event.” Nam Nguyen ended up winning the silver medal at this event.

Through the years, her enthusiasm has not faded, as Kano Podolsky was just as excited at Skate Canada International 2022 in Mississauga, Ontario, where she cheered on Japanese pair gold medallists Riku Miura and Ryuichi Kihara. Her proximity to the duo isn’t coincidental; she has gotten to know the young Japanese team quite well since they moved to train in her hometown of Oakville, Ontario. Watching them win at SCI 2022 was all the more enthralling because of this.

Life can be so multifaceted and Momo Kano Podolsky’s story illuminates that. Volunteering has given her a new way to use skills she previously did not get to use in her daily life. By day, prior to retirement, Kano Podolsky was a professor holding a PhD in Sociology. Later in her career, she moved on to become a Graduate Program Administrator at the Munk School of Public Affairs and Public Policy at the University of Toronto. This is leaps and bounds from the media work and interpreter work she has gotten to experience directly from volunteering. “I always wanted to be an interpreter and was interested in sport. That part of volunteering at Skate Canada is really interesting to me.”

When asked what she would say to people thinking of signing up to volunteer, she told us: “You have to take the first step and try it and see if you like it – chances are it’s going to be exciting. Getting your jacket and accreditation, it’s just fun and exciting. If you think of volunteering as an opportunity to explore what you can be doing better, it really broadens your life. You’re not doing something you usually do but get to use resources you have.”

Looking back, that one decision in 2013 led to a decade of memories and key moments that have enriched her life. To get to round out your life, build new relationships and be entrenched in something so much bigger than yourself is what it is like to volunteer at a Skate Canada event and for Momo Kano Podolsky, it is something that she would not give up for the world.

Skate Canada joining Abuse-Free Sport

OTTAWA, ON – Skate Canada has confirmed our commitment to Abuse-Free Sport and has signed an agreement to join the program by December 31, 2022. Abuse-Free Sport is a newly formed independent program to prevent and address maltreatment in sport, which includes the services of the Office of the Sport Integrity Commissioner.

Abuse-Free Sport will now handle all misconduct complaints for individuals that are part of the National Team and NextGen programs, which includes athletes, coaches, team leaders, staff, and integrated support team members. Abuse-Free Sport will also be the reporting system used for the Skate Canada Board of Directors and international officials.

“Our dedication to a safe environment is a top priority and we are proud to be taking another step towards protecting the skating community through the Abuse-Free Sport,” said Debra Armstrong, Chief Executive Officer, Skate Canada. “We are pleased to see Abuse-Free Sport fully operational, with the expertise and capacity to support the sporting system.”

In September 2020, Skate Canada launched an enhanced National Safe Sport Program with updated policies and procedures to improve safety within the skating community. This update also included the adoption of the Universal Code of Conduct to Prevent and Address Maltreatment in Sport (UCCMS) into all policies and procedures.

Before December 31, 2022, the identified groups will continue to have access to Skate-Safe, an independent third-party reporting mechanism for all misconduct matters.

Misconduct matters for all remaining members and registrants are still managed by Skate-Safe, a misconduct reporting system that is operated by IntegrityCounts, a third-party service provider. Complaints received through Skate-Safe are submitted to an independent external Case Manager to ensure an independent review, investigation, and disposition.

OTTAWA, ON (December 13, 2022) – Skate Canada is excited to announce that single day tickets for the 2023 Novice Canadian Championships/Skate Canada Cup will be available for pre-sale on Thursday, December 15, 2022, at 10:00 AM EST, and on sale to the public on Monday, December 19, 2022, at 10:00 AM EST.

Single day tickets will be priced at $45 for adults and $20 for children 12 and under (plus applicable taxes and fees). Please note that tickets will be general admission. Tickets can be purchased at Ticketmaster.ca 


The 2023 Novice Canadian Championships will feature the top up-and-coming Canadian figure skaters in the men, women, pair, ice dance, and synchronized skating disciplines, and will determine the 2023 national champions in these fields. The event will be followed by the 2023 Skate Canada Cup, which will showcase the very best Canada has to offer in synchronized skating. This event will feature synchronized skaters from the intermediate and open levels, who will be vying for a spot on the podium across these categories.  

Most recently, Calgary hosted the Skate Canada Synchronized Skating Championships in 2022, 2020, and 2017. 

Definition of ‘Team’ updated to reflect gender diversity across the Podium Pathway

OTTAWA, ON: Skate Canada is pleased to be advancing its Skating for Everyone initiative with the updated definition of ‘team’ in the Podium Pathway for pair and ice dance teams. The Podium Pathway definition of ‘team’ will be revised to ‘a team consists of two skaters’.

The previous definition of ‘team’ was one woman and one man. That definition was inconsistent with Skate Canada’s vision of Skating for Everyone and Skate Canada’s commitment to non-discrimination, including non-discrimination based on gender identity.

The recommendation was developed by the Skate Canada Equity Diversity, Inclusion and Accessibility (EDIA) Operating Committee and unanimously endorsed by the committee in July 2022. In September 2022, the motion was presented to the Skate Canada Board of Directors and was unanimously passed.

“By updating the definition of team, many individuals in the figure skating community in Canada will have new opportunities to embrace the sport. This change is about removing barriers to participation in skating, and we believe it will have a significant impact in ensuring all gender identities are recognised and accepted equally and without prejudice,” said Karen Butcher, President, Skate Canada. “This change has been collectively endorsed by Skate Canada and will allow for new and exciting partnerships in the pair and ice dance disciplines to compete at the national level. Skate Canada is privileged to continue the advancement of skating in Canada by making rule and policy change that allows everyone to experience the joy of skating.”

The Podium Pathway is the final Skate Canada pathway to be revised to align with Skate Canada policies related to non-discrimination and gender diversity. The STAR and Adult pathways were adopted to the ‘two skaters’ terminology in 2019.

“It has been a privilege to work with the Skate Canada Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Accessibility Operating Committee and push forward this proposal to update the definition of “Team” to include all pairings of gender identities,” said Kaitlyn Weaver, EDIA member and Olympian. “Ice dance is my passion, and although beautifully steeped in tradition, the future of our sport depends on looking critically and assertively at who and who is not represented. All skaters deserve to have a home on the ice— inclusive of their fullest selves. I look forward to seeing that become a reality in the competitive arena.”

Allowing any two skaters to compete through the Podium Pathway will have a significant impact on the sport development in both the pair and ice dance disciplines. This update will allow skaters to move forward with further achievements and competitive successes through the Skating to Win strategic imperative.

“It was necessary for the ice dance and pair world to change their definition of team from a man and a woman to just two people skating together, however they identify. Many colleagues and I have pushed for this change and are excited that Skate Canada has taken action to make skating more accessible,” said Scott Moir, Skate Canada coach and Olympic Champion. “Our craft is a mixture of athleticism and art and because of this we have a unique opportunity for a level playing field unlike any other sport, regardless of how individuals identify. This change will push the sport forward in many ways with the creation of new and interesting work from athletes that now can perform together.”

The definition and the language will be updated in the rule book, Podium Pathway documents, and the scoring system. Previously pair and ice dance teams required an entry of a woman and a man. Updated language of ‘skater A’ and ‘skater B’, ‘lifted partner’ and ‘lifting partner’ as well as ‘follow’ and ‘lead’ can all be used to differentiate each athlete.

The definition of a team as two skaters applies only to Skate Canada domestic events. All International Skating Union (ISU) events are subject to ISU rules.

Canada Reigns in Ice Dancing with Double Gold at ISU Grand Prix Final

TORINO, Italy (December 10, 2022) – Canada won the gold medal in both the senior and junior ice dancing competitions Saturday to conclude the ISU Grand Prix Final.

In the senior event, Piper Gilles and Paul Poirier of Toronto made it a golden sweep on the circuit this year placing first with 215.64 points. Madison Chock and Evan Bates of the U.S. were second at 211.94 and Charlene Guignard and Marco Fabbri of Italy third at 206.84. Canadians Laurence Fournier Beaudry and Nikolaj Soerensen were sixth with 196.15 points.

‘’That was the most present we’ve felt all season,’’ said Gilles. ‘’We felt nervous at our first two events this season, but today we just let it skate and it topped the other performances.’’

The couple had contemplated retirement after the Olympics last year. This season was a test to see whether they still had that passion.

‘’Our goal for this season is really to recapture our joy of skating,’’ said Poirier. ‘’It was really stressful during the Olympics. Yes, we want to win and be the best in the world but more than that we want to feel really proud of the work we’ve done and enjoy every performance.

In junior ice dancing, world junior bronze medallists Nadiia Bashynska and Peter Beaumont of Ajax, Ont., were the victors with 167.26 points. Hannah Lim and Ye Quan of South Korea took the silver at 162.53 and Katerina Mrazkova and Daniel Mrazek of the Czech Republic were third at 161.54. The Canadians won their two ISU Junior Grand Prix’s, as well as the Final this season.

‘’That’s why we are here,’’ said Beaumont. ‘’Having two clean skates which we are super proud of, especially here in the Final. The world juniors are in Calgary (February 27-March 5, 2023) so we are aiming for the gold there as well.’’

Chloe Panetta of Laval, Que., and Kieran Thrasher of Amherstburg, Ont., finished sixth in the junior pairs event. Australians Anastasia Golubeva and Hektor Giotopoulos Moore were the winners.

‘’We showed what are capable of in the free skate,’’ said Panetta. ‘’We attacked every element and we just have to build off of that so we can be even better for nationals.’’

Two bronze medals for Canada at ISU Challenger Series

ZAGREB, Croatia (December 9, 2022) – Madeline Schizas and the new pairs team of Lia Pereira and Trennt Michaud won bronze medals for Canada on Friday at the Golden Spin of Zagreb, the last stop on the ISU Challenger Series figure skating circuit.

In women’s competition, Schizas, the Canadian champion from Oakville, Ont., produced her best free skate of the season to climb from fourth after the short program to total 183.24.

The Americans were 1-2 with Lindsay Thorngren first at 196.48 and Bradie Tennell second at 193.31.

Pereira and Michaud, fourth after Thursday’s short program, gained ground on the leaders and were third at 176.88 in their international debut. They’d only had two national events under their belt this season.

‘’Our main focus right now is to train and put in the work every single day,’’ said Pereira, from Milton, Ont., who is also a singles skater. ‘’ We are building and learning new skills every time we compete.’’

Corey Circelli of Toronto stands ninth after the men’s short program.

Gilles and Poirier Lead After Rhythm Dance at ISU Grand Prix Final

TORINO, Italy (December 9, 2022) – Piper Gilles and Paul Poirier of Toronto are in first place after the rhythm dance, while Deanna Stellato-Dudek and Maxime Deschamps of Vaudreuil-Dorion, Que., nearly reached the podium in pairs on Friday at the ISU Grand Prix Final. The competition regroups the top-six performers in each event during the regular senior and junior Grand Prix seasons.

In pairs, world championship silver medallists Riku Miura and Ryuichi Kihara of Japan completed a golden sweep of their three Grand Prix assignments, topping the six-team field with 214.58 points. Alex Knierim and Brandon Frazier of the U.S. were second at 213.28 and Sara Conti and Niccolo Macii of Italy snuck into third with 187.02. The Italians caught Stellato-Dudek and Deschamps, who dropped to fourth overall with 184.28.

The Canadians won gold and silver in their Grand Prix events this season. However, Stellato-Dudek was ill this week which kept her off the ice in training. While she expressed her disappointment, Deschamps viewed it as a learning experience.

‘’We were able to accomplish some things. Sure, the result wasn’t what we wanted but once we overcome our emotions we are going to get back up and build for the next one.’’

Gilles and Poirier earned an 85.93 score in the rhythm dance which was slightly better than Madison Chock and Evan Bates of the U.S., who came in second at 85.49. Charlene Guignard and Marco Fabbri of Italy stand third at 84.55.

‘’We don’t’ often see the scores this tight after the rhythm dance,’’ said Poirier, who won both Grand Prix stops this year with Gilles. “It’s exciting to see. Everyone in this field is so good and so strong. It’s great for the audience as well.’’

Laurence Fournier Beaudry and Nikolaj Soerensen of Montreal are also in the medal hunt with 83.16 for fourth.

‘’We’re happy with what we put out there,’’ said Fournier Beaudry, a gold and silver medallist with her partner this season on the circuit. ‘’Our goal is always to go out there and try our best to win. This is also a challenge to see how we measure against these teams.’’

In junior ice dancing, world junior bronze medallists Nadiia Bashynska and Peter Beaumont of Ajax, Ont., lead after the rhythm dance. The Canadians, who won their two Junior Grand Prix assignments this season, totalled 67.74 points. Phebe Bekker and James Hernandez of Great Britain are second at 64.58 and Hannah Lim and Ye Quan of South Korea third at 64.21.

‘’We just wanted to give our best performance for the audience and we gave it our all,’’ said Bashynska. “I’m so excited for the free dance. It’s the most detailed and the most heart-felt program we’ve ever done in our lives.”

Competition ends Saturday with the senior and junior free dances, as well as the junior pairs free program. For full results, click here.
