Good Luck for Glasgow
Uttoxeter Skating Club would like to wish the best of luck to Vicki, Carl and Gracie as they go to Glasgow to
compete in the British Inclusive Skating Chamionships 2019. This competition allows those with additional needs to
compete in an environment
that is supportive and inclusive, whilst taking into account the skater’s particular needs.
This will be Vicki’s second time competing at these championships having won gold
last year. This year she will be entering even more disciplines than last year as she competes in the Free
Program, Free Dance, Pattern Dance and Compulsory Elements categories. Vicki is aiming to reach a score in double
figures in her Free Program, bettering her impressive
score from last year.
Carl will be competing in his first exclusively inclusive competition, as he competes in
both the Free Program and Compulsory Elements at Level 4. He has previously represented Uttoxeter at the 2018
Artistic competition in Milton Keynes in the inclusive
category. Carl goes into the competition with a high level of competitive experience having competed both at
Uttoxeter and nationally.
Gracie will be taking part in her
first competition and is looking forward to impressing the judges in Glasgow. Having started skating less than a
year ago Gracie has come on leaps and bounds, reaching a level 8 in Skate Excellence. She enjoyed showing off her
program during the Spring Showcase and will hope to replicate this performance when she steps onto the ice in
The British Inclusive Championships will be a great experience for all three of these
skaters and we wish them all the best over the next week!
