Dear Parents and Skaters

It is with great excitement that we inform you that SAFSA WP will be hosting a Year End Celebration of Skating Gala on Tuesday, 6th December 2022, at 19:00. GALA ENTRY FORM

The aim of the event is to raise funds, have fun, promote the sport, build camaraderie and not necessarily to create award winning performances, as there will be no judges, only spectators present. As time is of the essence, we have opted to run the evening more as a simulation evening than a Gala, however all skating will take place under lights in order to create the required ambience.

The evening will consist of WP Novice, Junior and Senior skaters, who are interested, skating a short program, on a first come first serve basis. Any short program may be skated, provided that the music is already loaded, as there is no time to edit/load music. Skaters may also wind back their elements should they wish to, to accommodate skating under lights and the use of props, provided they are safe, will also be allowed. So if you have a favourite short that you have always wanted to re-skate, or you wish to do your current seasons short, you are more than welcome. Entertainment is the key!

Solo dance will also be accommodated, with four slots available. Pre Novice, Juvenile and Chicks, will be accommodated in groups, where a two-minute fun performance can be choreographed. The Coaches and Taps will be assisting with this. Depending on the response, pre novice may also be offered a slot to do their component programs.

The evening will be advertised to the general public as well as SAFSA and all club members and spectator tickets will be sold via Quicket at R100 per person.

All participants will be required to pay a basic entrance fee with 50% towards ice time fees and 50% towards our fund-raising initiative, of which all funds raised will contribute towards the costs of WP Champs in February 2023. With the rise in costs and with that period of the year having WP Champs, GIP and SA Nationals all in a short space of time, we are wanting to keep the entry fees for WP Champs as low as possible. This can only be done by raising funds that will be used to cover as many costs as possible so that these are not passed onto the skaters.

Should you wish to enter please click on the link below and register. Proof of payment is due by no later than Friday, 25th November, however entries will close on Monday, 21 November.

We have set up an independent Events Co-Ordinating team, headed by Ingrid Botha so please feel free to contact her for any further queries on 0824504578 or
