OTTAWA, ON: Skate Canada is proud to announce the launch of its Safe Sport Ambassador program. The new program will further advance Skate Canada’s safe sport program by allowing alumni and current athletes to give back to the sport by setting a positive example for the next generation of athletes and the greater skating community in safe sport.
We are happy to announce that three-time Canadian pair champion and Olympian, Kirsten Moore-Towers, and ten-time Canadian champion and three-time World champion, Patrick Chan, will be the Skate Canada Safe Sport Ambassadors for the 2021-2022 season.
“I am so honoured and thrilled to be named a Safe Sport Ambassador for the upcoming season, alongside Patrick Chan, who has been a long-time teammate and friend,” said Kirsten Moore-Towers. “I look forward to playing a key role in helping increase the awareness of Skate Canada’s National Safe Sport Program to all members and registrants.”
Both Kirsten and Patrick will be involved in increasing program awareness and education by promoting Skate Canada’s safe sport program through various channels. They will work closely with the safe sport and communications division to achieve its goals and objectives, such as communicating the value of our program to members/registrants, educating on various safe sport topics, and representing the program at launches and events.
“I am very humbled to be named one of Skate Canada’s Safe Sport Ambassadors for the 2021-2022 season. I am also very excited to have the opportunity to work with Kirsten Moore-Towers, who has been a positive role model in the figure skating world,” said Patrick Chan. “I believe Kirsten and I will be able to set a positive example and successfully relay Skate Canada’s Safe Sport messaging to the future generation of athletes.”
More information on this exciting new initiative will be available in the coming months.
