Skater of the Month is April Wang. April is 13 years old and attends Grade 7 at Roberts Creek Elementary School.
April says her favourite thing about skating is when she learns something new. She also loves doing spins on the ice. When April is not skating she likes to play the piano.
Professional coaches Lesleigh Farr and Daryl Austman say, “April is our newest addition to Starskate, moving up for Spring ice. April competed at the Star 1-4 competition in Vancouver in March and at the VI Superseries in Parksville in April, claiming gold both times in Star 1. April participates in both on-ice and dry-land practice; she also attended the Gary Beacom seminar in Squamish along with 17 other SCSC skaters this past weekend. She has an exemplary work ethic and is focused and respectful. Keep up the good work, April.”
Congratulations, April, on your achievements!
