    Good for him. One of the great things about Canadians each year is seeing all the former competitors at the boards, passing their experience, skills and encouragement to the next generation.

    Wish Bryce all the best as he begins the next stage of his skating career. Looks like he has settled in at the rink in Hamilton. And it would be great if he can bring more young boys to the sport!

    Very smart choice. He's going to be a great coach. :) Looking forward to seeing him on the other side of the boards.

    I wish him good luck with his coaching career. If he was living here, I would take him as my coach for sure lol!:)

    To be honest, personally I think Jessica was the person to drag them down, although she was also the person who shone. I really hope Bryce having a happier career as a coach.

    Thanks for the link Sylvia and the quote from it. :)

    Just from watching Bryce interact w/the little ones at SC a couple of years ago, I had a feeling he'd be a great coach some day. I really hope this new direction in his skating life is a very successful one. :)

    To me it was Bryce who shone. They both have greater posture, but IMO Bryce's stands among garden variety male pairs skaters in terms of both posture and grace.

    Yeah, to me there was nothing that thrilling about Jessica Dube.

    Hmm. So some feelers were put out. I’d be curious to know who he was interested in. South of the border perhaps? Sylvia (or anyone else who might know), is there some sort of competition registration deadline in the US system? Sept. 1st?

    Here is the CHCH news video interview with Bryce and some footage of him working with the kids both on and off the ice: http://www.youtube.com/user/HamiltonSkatingClub#p/u/0/6-zR1M6-QVk. Be forewarned, it’s a bit of an OTT lurve-fest. :lol: He does utter the “r” word” however. Understandable that he might still be a little ambivalent about his plans. I usually tell my clients to hold off making any major life decisions until they’re fully recovered because they may feel quite differently once they’re able to return their normal activities. It can be hard to stay motivated and positive during a long rehab program, especially when there here isn’t a specific goal to work toward or an activity the person is anxious to get back to.

    Yes, any new US pair or dance team that hopes to qualify for 2012 US Nationals via one of the 3 Sectional Championships in November 2011 must register online with USFS by September 1, 2011.

    Thanks Sylvia! That would have put the kibosh on competing for the US this season. Unfortunate. :(

    A September 1st deadline seems so early. A team that forms in September or October could possibly throw something together in time for November's Sectionals and be plenty competent for January's Nationals, but instead has to sit out for the whole season. Oh well. I understand that registrations cannot be made at the last minute, but Sept 1 is early. On the bright side, it encourages new teams to not rush things, I suppose.

    The deadline is September 1st because most entrants start their qualifying season at Regionals (in early October). For a Senior pair, they get a bye through Regionals since there are not as many competitors and begin their qualifying at Sectionals, but need to register early to "qualify" for their bye.
