Bentley skating club growing


The Bentley Skating Club is preparing for another busy season of fun, learning, and challenges. Lessons are set to start Oct. 12. Registration will remain open until Oct. 7 so families with children interested in skating still have time to enrol them.

At the club’s fall registration meeting on Sept. 27, more than 30 children registered in each of the CanSkate and the PowerSkate programs.

“It was kind of hectic,” Jennifer Goddu said. She is pleased with the numbers so far this year and mentioned four levels of classes will be offered.

There is a new CanSkate program head coach; Morgan Laird, who is a new teacher at Bentley school, is a fully qualified instructor.

“We really lucked out there as we had no coach,” Goddu said. “And she is fully qualified.”

Kathleen Moore remains the head coach of the PowerSkate program.

Assistant coaches Joslyn Snow and Eylse Abma both helped out last year.

The executive welcomed some newcomers to the board. President remains April Skjonsberg, vicepresident is Angelina Lowery, secretary is Joanne Varge, treasurer remains Jennifer Goddu. Directors include Laura McKain and Shannon Anderson.

For more information about the Bentley Skating Club or to register, contact Jennifer Goddu at 403-755-1527 or April Skjonsberg at 403-748-2249.
