Administrative history

The Club de patinage artistique de Coaticook (CPA de Coaticook) began in 1969 as Les Pointes argentées de Coaticook. The first Board of Directors was composed of Andrée Joubert, Rita Veillette, Thérèse Couture, Marguerite Gosselin, and Carmen Michaud. Financing of Club and access to ice time was particularly challenging in the early years. Over time, they were able to secure some donations from the City of Coaticook as well as charitable organizations in the area. By the second year of their activities, club membership had risen to 135 members and the first performance of the skaters was organized.
Over the years, some skaters from CPA de Coaticook went on to compete in provincial and national competitions, such as Maryse Tremblay, Martine Ruel, Renel Péloquin, Nathalie Coupal, Vicky Coupal, Louise Michaud, Maggy Caron, and Odrée Grenier.
The CPA de Coaticook encountered challenges in the 2000s as a result of the decrease in popularity of figure skating in the region. During this time, club membership was about 50-60 skaters. With the efforts of dedicated directors and volunteers, the CPA de Coaticook experienced a resurgence of interest and activity following 2011, which was also marked by the official change of the Club’s name.
