Gold Ice teams have been hard at work these past few weeks with competitions and our annual Gold Ice Gala.
The Junior team was in Kalamazoo, Michigan November 16th – 18th to “kick-off” their competition season at the Kalamazoo Kickoff. Up against some tough competitors and US National team members, Gold Ice skated two strong programs and finished on top of the podium for both. We are proud of the skaters for a great start to their competitive season!

Junior Free Program – 1st
That same weekend, the Gold Ice Juvenile team was invited to participate in the Meraki Showcase. The team enjoyed themselves and loved watching Canadian Senior Ice Dancers Piper Gilles and Paul Porier perform. Thank you to Meraki for having us!
Following a very successful Gold Ice Gala – which featured performances from all 7 Gold Ice teams, 6 guest teams and SCBC skaters – our teams got right back to work preparing for the first Ontario competition of the season.
This past weekend, six of our Gold Ice teams headed to the new location of Dorchester, Ontario to compete at Bill Phillips. It’s always an exciting event with teams debuting their programs for the first time. Many of our teams laid down personal best performances, kicking the season off in a big way.

A special thank you goes out to the organizing committee and Skate Ontario for hosting such a fantastic event. The Gold Ice family had a wonderful time and we are very grateful to all volunteers for your time and dedication!
It’s no time to rest – our teams are already back at the rink working hard towards improving their programs for Winterfest. Gold Ice is looking forward to once again hosting this exciting event!
