Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Where is Truro Skate with a Champion: Patrick Chan taking place?
A: Colchester Legion Stadium, 14 Lorne St., Truro, NS
Q: How do coaches register?
A: You simply need to let our Registrar, Coach Annette Hiltz, know so you're on our list and then you can pay in advance by mail or at the registration desk when you arrive, between 7 and 7:30.
Q: Why aren't I able to send an e-transfer to register my child?
A: We're trying to keep the registration process as clean as possible so we're asking that fees and applications arrive at the same time so nothing gets lost or separated.
Q: Why am I having so much trouble finding a hotel in Truro for that weekend?
A: There is a large cheer competition in Truro the same weekend as Truro Skate with a Champion: Patrick Chan so a lot of the area's rooms are booked. Click here for information on hotels for Truro Skate with a Champion.
Q: Why did you move Truro Skate with a Champion to the spring?
A: The fall was getting to be a difficult time to schedule this event - other seminars being offered, busy ice surfaces, and the usual competitions. We try to keep the timing fluid so we can accommodate our host champions' demanding schedules but we expect it will stay in the spring going forward.
Q: How do you choose the host champions?
A: We always try for a Canadian first since our country is a figure skating powerhouse with lots of talented champions. So far, we have booked champion figure skaters but we also consider coaches and choreographers who have accomplished great things with their skaters. We take into account the wish list of skaters in Atlantic Canada, of course. They usually have lots of suggestions! We focus on booking host champions who have achieved greatness (or are on the road to it) and who have an interest in and love of teaching. We want them to be upbeat and fun, while also demanding the best of our participants. And then, of course, we have to consider availability also. Easy, right?!
