Written by 

The Swift Current Skating Club celebrated a successful season with the On Broadway ice show at the Innovation Credit Union i-plex, March 19. The club's ice show is an annual event to showcase the talent of their skaters in front of family and friends, who attended in large numbers. Skaters wore colourful outfits and performed routines that where choreographed to the sound of music from some famous musicals, varying from The Sound of Music to Grease and The Lion King. The performance concluded with a grand finale, when all the skaters were on the ice. This was followed by an awards ceremony, during which six rising star awards were presented to skaters. The award recipients were Hart Johnston (First Blades 1), Georgia Unger (First Blades 2), Vaeda Johnson (First Blades 3), Sadie Schamber (CanSkate 1), Erika Olson (CanSkate 2) and Karley Tait (Rising Stars). A gift was also presented to Tracy Hansen, a member of the club's coaching staff, who is retiring after 19 years as a professional coach, of which around 16 years were spent with the Swift Current Skating Club.
