Two IW skaters are due to compete at the IJS competitions in Sheffield next week (22 to 26 August).
Nikita Heathfield makes her debut in the novice ladies competition, and Maggie Read competes in the junior ladies. Both skaters are trained by IW head coach Terri Smith.
Former IW skater Sophie Kent, representing iceSheffield, also competes in the junior ladies.
As usual, both events have attracted a large number of talented young skaters from across the UK: according to the provisional lists there are 44 competitors in the novice ladies and 50 in the junior ladies. A strong placing in either event is going to be a real challenge.
