Letter from the Director


Dear CIA skating families:

It is with great pleasure that I can introduce myself this season as your new director of figure skating here at the Canadian Ice Academy.

There are many changes within our facility, starting with Chris McNamara taking over the role of General Manager. Jenny Wyant is now heading up as our CanSkate director and Signe Ronka, with her team from Flexafit, will be taking over our fitness and dance programs. All of these changes have been greeted with rousing cheers of enthusiasm. The team of coaches and directors are creating a special environment at the CIA that welcomes all skaters and their families. We hope to be a part of your child’s life as they grow and learn in a positive place.

We look forward to a fantastic year which is already under way with numerous medals at the first two area competitions.

With the Sectional Championships and Keswick competition just around the corner our High Performance athletes and StarSkate athletes are all hard at work.

We are proud of all our skaters and wish them the best of luck in the upcoming events.

With the changes in management and programs we have also seen the addition of our new club jackets. These are available for all skaters of all levels. If you wish to order your own team jacket please speak with Carolanne our office administrator in the office.

Welcome to the NEW Canadian Ice Academy!

Keep your blades sharp!

Yours in skating,

Karen Preston
Director of Figure Skating / CIA
Two Time National Champion
