Team Ontario Women
Team Ontario Men
November 24th 2014
The Toronto club showed up in force this past weekend during the Ontario Team Trials for the 2015 Canada Winter Games.
Through many ups and downs of a very, very intense competition, three Toronto skaters - Ayanna B, Gibson H and Nils E - made it onto Team Ontario and will be skating at the CWG in Prince George this coming February. Not only did we send the most skaters to the team, but our skaters also got both (Female and Male) 1st Alternate positions through Juliette B and Aidan P.
Coach Will has this to say about the performance:
"There were many wonderful things that Cameron and I were able to experience this past weekend at the Canada Winter Games Trials in Clarington. It was wonderful to have Ayanna and Aidan back in our midst. It was incredible to watch as Gibson, Nils and Ayanna earned spots on the Ontario Team, with Juliette and Aidan earning first alternate positions.
What was most exceptional though was watching our Toronto skaters grow before our eyes: make mistakes and learn from them in the next race; manage the pressure of a high level selection meet; use the opportunity of a fast competition to establish new personal bests; and deal with a roller coaster of a weekend.
All of the Toronto skaters, Ayanna, Hannah, Juliette, Megan, Mila, Emma, Gabrielle, Gibson, Aidan, Nils, Hayden, Adrian, Elias, and Eren did yourselves honour, just as you bring honour to your families and the club.
Our five skaters at the Provincial meet that occurred at the same time made us proud too."
