Figure Skating Championships Coming to Wesley Chapel
The Sunshine State Games attract athletes of all ages and skill levels from throughout Florida.
WESLEY CHAPEL – The competition is heating up on the ice in Pasco County.
Pasco will host the annual Sunshine State Games Figure Skating Championships from May 18 – 20 at Florida Hospital Center Ice in Wesley Chapel.
For the first time, the Florida Sports Foundation has chosen Pasco County to be the host community for the prestigious, annual Olympic-style program. The Sunshine State Games attracts athletes of all ages and skill levels from throughout Florida.
“We’re excited to host the most important figure skating event in Florida,” Pasco Tourism Program Manager Consuelo Sanchez said. “Exceptional teamwork among the Office of Tourism Development, Florida Hospital Center Ice and local clubs created this opportunity.”
The Sunshine State Games Figure Skating Championships is presented by the Florida Sports Foundation, a division of Enterprise Florida, the official sports promotion and development organization for the state of Florida.
Florida Hospital Center Ice was also the training home for the USA Hockey Women’s National Team that won gold in this year’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. The state-of-the-art facility has hosted multiple National USA Hockey championships and is the training home for international athletes – including six-time French national champion figure skating pair Vanessa James and Morgan Cipres.
“We’re proud that Pasco County is being recognized nationally as a sports destination,” Sanchez said. “These events bring athletes and their families, and our growing list of entertainment and accommodations keeps them coming back.”
