Where it all started

Scott and Tessa Got Their Start at Ilderton Skating Club

Tessa and Scott started their skating career here at the Ilderton Skating Club. Their coach, Carol Moir, paired them up to compete in the Western Ontario Development program and never looked back!

They caught the World’s attention in 2006 when they became the first Canadian Ice Dancers to win the Junior World Championships. Since then, this pair consistently placed among the top of the pack at International competitions, including a gold medal at the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver, two silver medals at the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, and gold at the 2010, 2012 and 2017 World Figure Skating Championships. Virtue and Moir are also eight time Canadian National Champions, winning in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2017 and 2018. At the 2009 Skate Canada, the pair received the first 10.0 awarded in dance in international competition. The pair have skated together since 1997, and are known for their intricate footwork and innovative lifts.

Tessa and Scott still continue to travel around Canada and the world skating in shows such as ‘Stars on Ice’, ‘Artistry on Ice’ as well as speaking engagements to various groups.

We are proud to call them home club members!
