Future Plans: World Inclusive Skating Virtual and Venue Championships
In future Virtual Events will compliment Venue Events. Venue Events will return soon and the next event will be named as the Walter Stewart Memorial Event. When Venue events can take place Virtual Championship events will continue as they meet the needs of Inclusive Skaters who find it difficult to travel or who experience difficulty participating in Venue Events. Virtual Events are fun for everyone, promote inclusion, provide additional competition opportunities and are now an established part of the Inclusive Skating format.
