9 Newmarket Skating Club members heading to provincial championships

The competition will be held in Mississauga this weekend

The Newmarket Skating Club is sending nine of its top skaters to the provincial championships in Mississauga this weekend. 

Athletes competed throughout the 2021-2022 season against skaters from across Ontario and now the highest scoring skaters have qualified for the Skate Ontario Championships. 

"Having such a large number of skaters make the provincial team is a huge success and win for Newmarket Skating Club. After numerous lockdowns and having to adapt to constant programming changes during the pandemic, this achievement is a testament to the determination, resilience and hard work of our skaters and coaches who are passionate about achieving their goals no matter the circumstances," said Heather Jannway, the club's program director.

The competition had been cancelled the past two years due to the pandemic, but this year it will run from March 25 to 27 at the Iceland Arena in Mississauga. 

The Newmarket Skating Club is the oldest and largest skating club in Newmarket. 

"These skaters represent our club's deep talent pool and serve as an inspiration for younger athletes just beginning their skating journey," Jannway said. 

The nine skaters competing this weekend are: 

  • Alfred Lau – Men’s Star 9 and Star 10
  • Julia Okorn Women’s Star 6
  • Elizabeth Michaud – Women’s Star 5 (Over 13)
  • Gabriella Terzievski – Women’s Star 5 (Over 13)
  • Sydney Achtermeier – Women’s Star 5 (Over 13)
  • Jerod Sparrow – Men’s Star 5 (Over 13)
  • Brooklyn Doerner – Women’s Star 5 (Under 13)
  • Brooklyn Redvers and Timothy Elliott – Star 4/5 Dance

The championships will be live streamed on the Skate Ontario website for those who want to cheer on the hometown crowd, which includes 23 other skaters from Newmarket's North Point Skating Academy.
