Year 8 student, Tabs Ozard, has been selected to be part of an elite group of ice skaters who will attend a camp in Finland later this year.
Tabs has enjoyed considerable success with her Altrincham-based team: they won last year’s British Junior B Championship; and came second in the same competition, held in Nottingham, in January this year. They are the only team from across Britain to have been chosen to attend this Finnish camp. Tabs will be travelling with her mum and team coach (Sam Ozard) and two other members of the Whizz Kids team.
At the camp, Tabs and her team mates will be involved in dance and gymnastic skating. As coach, Sam will be learning new techniques, while Tabs and her fellow skaters will be acquiring new skills. “We look forward to being able to pass on our new knowledge and skills to our team mates when we return to Altrincham,” Tabs enthused.
