Competitive Skate is a program for skaters who show potential as competitive skaters. In order to compete in this stream, skaters are required to achieve at a specific level. Coaches will advise if this is an appropriate option for a skater. Competitive disciplines include: singles, pairs and ice dance wishing to compete in qualifying events all the way up to the international level.
Nepean Skating Club has a strong contingent of competitive skaters, supported by coaches certified for all levels of development and performance. The Club offers programming and supports for its competitive skaters through the Learn to Compete Plus (LTC+) Program and the Skater Development Fund.
