The Carleton Ravens Figure Skating Competitive Club is looking to fundraise $3000 to assist with competition and training costs leading up to the 2019 OUA Figure Skating Championships February 12 & 13 in Kingston, Ontario. As in previous years, a priority of the team is promoting safe travel for our athletes to and from competitions . This ultimately means taking a team bus. Our athletes train four times each week at the Ice House, with some practices starting as early as 6:30am. All athletes are required to be full time students and have made the commitment to stay involved in the sport of figure skating through the Carleton Ravens Figure Skating Team. With all that they invest the team, we want provide you with the opportunity to assist in their fundraising goals ensuring it is feasible for all athletes to arrive at competitions safely, rested and ready to compete representing Carleton University.
Each season Ravens Figure Skating receives generous grants from the Department of Athletics and CUSA. While we are forever thankful for these contributions to the team, the cost of attending university figure skating events far exceeds these amounts. All team members individually invest a large amount into season fees however, also rely heavily on fundraising. We have had success with the Future Funder platform in previous seasons and hope to gain your support this season allowing us to best prepare, attend, and arrive safely at the 2019 OUA Figure Skating Championships.
The Carleton Ravens Figure Skating Competitive Club is aiming to raise $3000 which will be used toward our season’s remaining competition entry fees, bus transportation and accommodations. These are all essential components in attending university figure skating competitions and we need your help! A team bus, while a large investment, is essential for the safety of our athletes and coaches. Having met many snow storms on our drives home from competitions in previous seasons, this is a priority for us. It also allows all athletes to arrive rested, relaxed and ready to compete and represent Carleton University to the best of our ability at the competitions.
