YRSA hosted a special seminar with our club Founder, Joanne McLeod on March 17, 2013.  Joanne and Kevin Reynolds had just finished the ISU World Figure Skating Championships in London, Ontario and she has graciously offered to stop by her old home club to conduct a seminar with our skaters.   All levels from Intermediate to Elite enjoyed a 45-minute session with Joanne. 

YRSA would like to congratulate Kevin Reynolds on his success at finishing 5th at 2013 ISU World Figure Skating Championships in London, Ontario!  Job well done!

Founder Seminar


With a record enrollment this year and an enthusiastic participation from our members, YRSA has put together a social lunch for the parents and skaters with Joanne after the seminar.  It was a wonderful opportunity to meet Joanne, a World and Olympic coach!   She has delighted everybody with the story how the club had started and what her vision had been almost 27 years ago.  

Nick DiSanto, YRSA President, thanked Joanne for her compelling speech and her continuous support for our Skating Director, Tracey Wainman, who continues with the club’s tradition of excellence Joanne had started years ago.

On behalf of all YRSA members, Nick has extended a warm welcome to Joanne any time her schedule lets her to visit us again.  Thank you Joanne for a memorable day!
