You be the judge: Novice clinic Nov. 5 & 6

The Skate Canada Alberta-NWT/Nunavut Section is holding a Novice Synchro Judging Clinic just outside Calgary at the Springbank Park for All Seasons on November 5 and 6, 2011. The registration form and further details are available here.

While it’s perhaps cliché to say so, and I’m admittedly biased, judging is truly an excellent way to give back to the sport, and to stay involved after you’ve hung up your skates. Many skaters also get their feet wet as a judge while still competing, often taking the opportunity to trial judge at competitions they’d be at anyway. Though for many years judging suffered from the perception that it’s too subjective and political, the evolution of CPC has led to a judging system that’s far more straightforward, fair, and objective than ever before. If you’ve ever been curious to see what it’s like on the “other side,” I encourage you to consider taking advantage of this opportunity. You’ll likely be pleasantly surprised at what you find.
