Stickel family receives Gagné Family Award from Speed Skating Canada

first_imgSpeed Skating Canada’s Gagné Family Award is awarded yearly to the family that has made an outstanding contribution to the development of the sport. This year’s recipients are well known within the Fort St. John community as the Stickel family has played a huge part over the past number of years training local skaters.Richard Stickel started teaching speed skaters in 1999, and took over as head coach of the Elks back in 2001. He said he initially got involved in speed skating to help his children get comfortable on the ice.“We put my son in speed skating to teach him how to skate for hockey,” he admitted. “We have a daughter that’s a year and a half younger and she liked it so we got involved that way. I had been coaching hockey but I promised my daughter there too. Somehow or another I ended up as head coach so I stayed there.”- Advertisement -While he was thankful for the award, he admitted to feeling a bit shy when it comes to the recognition because of the efforts and dedication put into the sport by others. That being said it was especially meaningful as the award gave credit to other members of the family.“You see so many people that put so much time into the sport and all sports so you kind of feel a little bit embarrassed for being singled out, but I was really happy for it to be a family award. My wife puts in so much work with it and my daughters are going to school and competing and they took such an interest and took that on as well at a young age.”Stickel’s wife Dee-Ann, along with their daughters Dayna, Kathryn, and Eryn have all made various contributions to speed skating.Advertisement “All three of my daughters coached the cradle group, the youngest group and took responsibility for that and made the practice plans,” he said. My wife is a level three meet coordinator and a level three recorder so she can do national events. She can do national events and has done quite a few big events.”While summer is just beginning, plans are in the works for the upcoming speed skating season. The Elks will be having their speed skating summer camp at the Pomeroy Sport Centre August 26-30.last_img read more

English refs chief admits four VAR blunders

first_imgThe VAR blunders included Fabian Schar’s equaliser for Newcastle against Watford, which should have been disallowed for a handball by Isaac Hayden, and Leicester midfielder Youri Tielemans avoiding a red card for an apparent stamp on Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson.The other two errors were the decision not to award Manchester City a penalty when Bournemouth’s Jefferson Lerma fouled David Silva and West Ham not getting a spot-kick after Sebastien Haller was brought down by Norwich’s Tom Trybull.Riley, the managing director of the elite refereeing body, said the Silva, Haller and Tielemans incidents were indicative of the high bar the Premier League has set for overturning the decisions of the on-field refereeBut he conceded the “clear and obvious” bar had been reached in each of these cases.“If you look at the four match rounds 227 incidents have been checked,” Riley told Sky Sports News.“Out of that we’ve changed six decisions, (and) we think we should have changed 10 in total.“That gives you the scale of where VAR can help and add value to the game. But it also demonstrates that this is still about refereeing a game of Premier League football on the pitch.”It is also understood that clubs discussed the length of the summer transfer window at Thursday’s meeting.Clubs voted two years ago to move deadline day, previously at the end of August, to a date before the season began.But with no uniformity of deadlines across Europe, some managers have urged a rethink because players can still be lost to clubs abroad after the Premier League window closes.The matter was raised at the meeting but no decisions were made and it will be discussed again in November.0Shares0000(Visited 29 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000A scoreboard shows that VAR is checking a possible goal © AFP / Daniel LEAL-OLIVASLONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 12 – Referees’ chief Mike Riley admitted on Thursday that four VAR mistakes have been made in the Premier League this season.Riley addressed the controversial issue of VAR use in the Premier League at a meeting of top-flight club chairman in London.last_img read more
