Jamboree

A Jamboree is a fun event, kind of like a competition. Skaters get put on teams (red, yellow, green, blue) with skaters from their club and from other clubs. Skaters preform and earn point toward their team score. Skaters will get a written evaluation sheet from the volunteer coaches who act as judges. The team score is all that matters in the end and teams will be awarded as a group.

This event is great for first time competitors from Pre-Junior level up.

Jamboree can be added onto another competition but it is also its own event in the northwest.

Did you know……

Figure Skating judges are all volunteers?

Yes, they all volunteer their time to judge competition and evalute test days. Their travel, accomodation and food are paid for but not their time.

They often receive a small gift if the host club can afford it.

These are normally past figure skaters but even with previous knowledge there is a lot of updates, clinics etc that they must attend to stay current.  They put in many hours to see the sport they love carry on.
