Skate With Us National Contest

Skate Canada is thrilled to announce the Skate With Us National Contest. The Skate With Us National Contest is all about why you skate with us – no matter how you skate! It is an opportunity to showcase the amazing talent we have in the skating community.

To enter the contest, participants are asked to submit videos in one of three categories:

Skate Canada’s Got Talent: Share your off-ice talents. This could be anything from musical talent, to dance skills, to magic – anything you want to show off!

Skate With Us: Share your personal stories and experiences with skating.  Maybe it is to tell the concept behind this year’s program, or how you learned a new skill, how you just mastered skating backwards or even how skating has become part of your identity. No matter if you skate alone, or with a team, or even if you just skate outdoors for fun, we want to hear why you love to skate!

Club & Skating Schools: Showcase something special about your club/school. It could be something the club/school does really well, a best-in-class practice, or something that is totally unique to the club/school or something that the club/school are particularly proud of.

To enter participants are asked to upload their videos to YouTube and then fill out the submission form.

All videos must meet the following requirements:

  • Video must be four (4) minutes or less in length;
  • Video must be in English and/or French;
