The Golden Figure Skating Club will be sending six skaters to compete at Autumn Leaves in Kamloops.

The event will be held on Oct. 12-14 and is part of the Skate Canada Super Series for figure skaters. The performers from Golden will be taking part on Oct. 13.

“You will have the chance to watch it live on your computer,” said  head coach of the club Karen Maynard Nemecek. “By going to the Skate Canada website you won’t leave your home and you can see them perform.”

The site will direct those who are interested in seeing the performances by heading to the Autumn Leaves section under performances.

The figure skaters have been working hard to prepare for the competition according to Nemecek.

“They started back on the ice when school started. It has been a quick transition from being off ice to being on ice. Three of them have had to learn new programs,” she said.
