Canskate  PA  of the Month

December 2019 & January 2020

Thank you for all of your hard work helping to make our CanSkate Programs successful!

 

You can usually find Chelsea helping out on our Wednesday PreCan session at the Piper Arena.  She's shown great initiative as a PA; knowing how to set up circuits quickly, knowing where she's needed the most on the ice and has even offered guidance to other PA's when necessary.  A wonderful smiling asset to our PreCan program, Chelsea is reliable, punctual and wonderful at assisting skaters on the ice.

Rylee is so dedicated while helping the skaters out on the ice, she does everything she can to make sure the ice is a fun and safe place to be.  She's always getting down to the skater's level and is actively communicating with them.  And when asked to take on extra roles she doesn't hesitate and rises t the challenge!  You can usually find Rylee helping out on Friday's and Wednesday's at Heritage Heights.  

Sonya has been an immense help on Friday's and Wednesday's this past month!  Very adaptive, Sonya takes any instruction well and is always looking to the next thing that needs to be done.  She has such great energy she shares with the skaters as well as her quality of edge work.  Thanks for all your help so far Sonya! 

 

Kristen is one of our most reliable and consistent PA's that we can always count on to help make our CanSkate program a success!  You can find her usually helping out on Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings.  She's punctual every session, demonstrates great leadership skills and is prepared for any challenge or tasks we ask of her.  Congratulations Kristen!
