The Figure Skating Club "KASKADS" was founded on 12 February 2001 in Riga, Latvia.
Our Club was created with the aim to promote figure skating in Latvia. To achieve said aim, a friendly team of professional coaches has been busy with training young sportsmen through all these years.
Our trainees take active part in different competitions, including international, and occupy prize-winning places. In the Club, those who simply want to learn and master the basics of figure skating are also trained since figure skating is a wonderful and useful occupation both for adults and children.
The activity of our Club is not limited to sport only. The desire to attract to figure skating as many children as possible, to create a friendly team of coaches, children and parents led us to the idea that it was necessary to organise concerts in which all the trainees of our Club could participate. That is why, for several years we have been dealing with the organisation and production of ice shows which leave bright pages in the book of our Club's history and are highly appreciated by spectators.
However, the more we tried to reach successes in sport, the less time we had for the organisation of shows. Nevertheless, the results of our leading sportsmen prove that we are on the right track!
Fantastic success at European and world championships over the last few years bring hope to our young figure skaters and instil confidence in them that everything is possible! The example of Angelīna Kučvaļska inspires the hardworking and talented sportsmen. For this very reason more and more new figure skating stars are born in our Club.
