The National Team Challenge (NTC) took place on Sunday 3 July at Guildford ice rink. Clubs fielding teams at this year’s event included Alexandra Palace, Basingstoke, Bracknell, Coventry, Gosport, Guildford,  Isle of Wight, and Slough.

At the NTC, clubs compete in eight out of a selection of 17 free skating, ice dance, synchro and artistic groups, plus a ninth, compulsory show category. Teams score points based on their finishing position in each group, and with eight teams competing this year, 1st place in each group scored 8 points, down to 8th place which scored 1 point. Choosing the right groups in which to compete can hugely change a team’s potential score and is part of the game of the event.

Positions of IW entries were as follows:

Synchronized skating: 3rd Isle of Wight

Beginners men, any age: 4th Kallum Wood

Novice A ladies, any age: 5th Keelin Scholes

Novice A men, any age: 4th Will Riley

IW skaters were in action at Guildford open competitions on 18 to 21 May, achieving the following results:

Beginner girls age 8 and under: 8th Sophia Elliott (7.17)
Beginner girls age 10: 4th Courtney Lane (12.30), 5th Tiarna Barton (11.88)
Beginner girls age 12 and over: 8th Bethan Perry (8.18)
Level 2 girls age 12 and over: 3rd Saphire Recalde-Arnold (15.02)
Level 3 girls: 4th Holly Eldridge (15.76)
Adult single silver Class I and Class II: 6th Miranda McGeoch (16.47)

Ryde head coach Terri Smith writes: “These were great results for our young skaters, especially Saphire Recalde-Arnold making the podium and achieving third place competing at level 2 for the first time. Saphire also received the score for her next test. This is new to figure skating – skaters can now achieve a certain score in competition and buy their test. This is more convenient and a great step forwards as the skaters can progress during competitions and it takes the extra stress out of taking exams.

“Test scores were also gained by Courtney, Tiarna and Holly, so if they want to move forwards they can buy their test.

“It was the first time Bethan Perry had competed in solo competition nationally, as she had only competed on the Island before. She found the large ice pad challenging and didn’t skate to her best. Experience was gained especially for all our skaters as the more they compete and get into the competition environment the better.

“IW solo skaters are now looking forwards to Basingstoke opens in November.”

The National Team Challenge (NTC) is under way today (6 July) at Lee Valley ice rink, east London. Clubs fielding teams at this year’s event include Alexandra Palace, Basingstoke, Bracknell, Chelmsford, Isle of Wight, Lee Valley and Slough. Members of the IW team were up at 4am today for the trip to Lee Valley.

Clubs compete in a selection of free skating, ice dance, synchro and artistic groups, plus a compulsory show number. The show number is for Isle of Wight skaters sometimes their first experience of competing on the mainland, and allows them to compete yet have the support of other members of the club. Teams score points based on their finishing position in each group, and with seven teams competing this year, 1st place in each group will score 7 points and 7th place 1 point. Groups can be lightly or heavily contested, leading to easy or hard-won points, which is both the charm of the NTC scoring system and part of the art of doing well at the event. It’s important to note that all calculations about maximizing points from small group sizes fail if one team can outright win in every group through the quality of its skating.

The Isle of Wight has never won the National Team Challenge, but has in the recent past has performed well overall for a club of its small size, finishing second in 2011 and third in 2012 and 2013.  In 2013 its show number, Cats, was first; the first time it came top in this group was in 2007 with Phantom of the Opera.
