Club News: Skater of the Month

The committee has decided to introduce a skater of the month award to reward a skater’s commitment, drive and passion for the sport. Skaters could receive the award for being a great team player showing determination, tenacity, improvement, team spirit and good sportsmanship.

Skater of the Month, June 2017: Ali Wright

Our skater of the month award for June goes to Ali Wright. She recently rejoined the club – Ali had been struggling to keep skating when our home rink closed and the Hot Fossils stopped skating as a team. She has shown fantastic team spirit, always wishing the skaters well and always smiling. Ali represented the Isle of Wight in the Gosport versus Isle of Wight friendly, performing a fantastic baton-twirling artistic routine and gaining valuable points to help the team secure the overall winning score.

Ali said she was incredibly nervous and it was her first  competition as a solo skater.

Coach Terri Smith said “ This was Ali’s first solo competition ever after having months of not skating. What an amazing achievement to help our team win the trophy. Ali demonstrated great performance and talent with her baton on the ice, one judge had her in second place, Well done Ali.”

Ali will receive 1 x Gosport patch session complements of the IWID&FSC.
