Skate Canada Announces New Skate Canada Trophy National Event

Skate Canada is pleased to announce a new national event – the Skate Canada Trophy – as part of the 2024-2025 competition season. This event will bring together the former Novice Canadian Championships and Skate Canada Challenge – Pre-Novice/Novice events under one umbrella. 

This new event will showcase Canada’s top up-and-coming talent in novice and pre-novice men’s and women’s singles, pair, and ice dance. The first edition of the Skate Canada Trophy is scheduled to take place at the Terwillegar Community Recreation Centre in Edmonton, Alta., from February 6-9, 2025 and will see new Canadian champions crowned at the novice level.  

The existing Skate Canada Cup will expand to encompass crowning new Canadian champions at the novice level of synchronized figure skating, as well as Skate Canada Cup champions in the gold and open categories. 

“We’ve listened to our Podium Pathway community and are excited to announce this more streamlined competition format for our novice and pre-novice skaters, and to continue to enhance the competition format for synchronized skating in Canada,” said Shae Zukiwsky, Senior Director, Performance Excellence at Skate Canada.  

The existing qualifying structure for the Pre-novice/Novice Challenge will be used for the Skate Canada Trophy. More details on this event will be released in the coming months.
