Yep. I cringe every time Skate Canada mentions "skate for life", while entirely ignoring adult skating. And even Skate Ontario, which really has made an effort for adult skating, cancelled Adult Provincials again this year, since they couldn't find a club to host it. It was last held in 2019. (Of course, the last couple of years have been a mess with covid, but still, lots of other events have taken place during that time...)Adult skating in Canada is in a very sad state. A few years ago SC cancelled adult nationals because "it cost too much". As far as anyone can tell, there is no one at SC head office responsible for supporting adult skating. SC loves to promote "skating for life" but adult skating wasn't even mentioned in the most recent strategic plan.
Some sections, like Alberta and Ontario, recognize the value and opportunity of adult skating, and encourage their clubs and competitions to incorporate adult programming. But other sections seem to have taken the message from the national level that adult skating isn't important, and have done very little or nothing to develop or support it.
At the Skate Ontario Adult Provincials which were cancelled in 2020, solo dance actually had been offered, and there were a decent number of entries at all levels. I do think the interest is there and would increase if there were regular competition opportunities.
