"The COVID-19 pandemic has continued to deliver uncertainty surrounding skating events and activities around the country," explains Skate Canada in a press release on Tuesday. The federation decided to cancel the 2021 Skate Canada Synchronized Skating Championships. The event was scheduled to take place in Sherbrooke, QC, in February 2021.
Due to these exceptional circumstances the 2021 Skate Canada Synchronized National Team will be comprised of those teams that finished in the top three in the senior discipline at the 2020 Skate Canada Synchronized Skating Championships.
As part of those initiatives, Skate Canada will collaborate with OneTeamMVMT to bring virtual learnings to the Canadian synchronized skating community. The five-week "Virtual Off-Ice for Synchro" will begin on October 24 for synchronized skating teams. It aims to help teams to keep their goals in focus.
