2012 NWP Regionals

Meagan is one of those rare skaters who combines athletic talent with musicality and artistry far beyond her years. In her most recent completion that won her a place at Pacific Coast Sections, Meagan skated a flawless performance with the speed and grace of a much older, more experienced skater.

Her performance was so exceptional that the entire audience, competitors, moms and dads, coaches, and spectators were all on their feet shouting and clapping as she raced to her final pose. She brought the house down with her performance.

Meagan was competing against 23 girls many of whom were older and more experienced. Her second place finish was a testament to her hard work, exceptional talent and beautiful artistry. Skating is an extremely difficult sport. Not only must the athlete perform amazing jumps, spins, and footwork, they must do so making it look effortless, graceful, and with musical interpretation.

Meagan’s performances improve dramatically each year, as she strives to reach her dream. She deserves the support of her community. Please become a sponsor.

Meagan's favorite color is green.  She loves yogurt and raspberries.  Her favorite movies are Muppet Movie and Blades of Glory.

Meagan loves to read when she is not on the ice, and likes to draw and paint. She loves to paint birds.  She still enjoys gymnastics and tumbling but is devoting her time to skating.

Her favorite animals are Narwhals and Cats!

Meagan's skating idol is Tara Lipinski because of how Tara expresses her love for the sport and how she won the Gold medal at the Olympics as such a young age.

My name is Meagan Duncan. I am 11 years old and attend 6th grade at Harrison Preparatory school in Lakewood, WA. I live with my mom, dad and my little sister Emma on Fort Lewis , since my dad is a Soldier in the US Army.

When I was 5 years old , my mom took me for a skating lesson in Fort Drum, NY and I fell in love with being on the ice. I continued lessons in Fort Drum and did a few competitions until my dad was told we had to move to Washington state.

It was hard for me at first to start over at a new school and ice rink, but getting right back on the ice there, helped me find friends and get adjust to the changes.

I found my great coach Heidi who is always there for me and encourages me to try my best.

Skating is my “place” where, no matter where we are, I feel at home. I feel happy when I skate and forget about everything else. I like being challenged and the feeling when I achieve something new.

Being a competitive skater is dedication and helps me also to stay confident at school, to work hard and keep my grades at straight A's.

Last year I even got invited to the National Young Leaders Conference in Washington, DC after my school recommended me for it.

Figure skating helped me to learn to never give up and always continue believing in myself. It is learning to support and encourage my friends, even when we compete against each other.

I also like that the skating is something our whole family does together, my mom and dad support me as much as they can, they always try to be there for me and support me.

Even my little sister cheers me on.


Ice Skating is not just a sport, it is also where children learn many of life’s most important lessons:

How to get back up when you fall. How to be a good team player but also how to work independently, with self-motivation and self-reliance.

Skating teaches children that working hard can make your biggest dreams come true. Children learn that it takes consistent effort to be the best at something. Skaters learn how to work through challenges, fears, self-doubt, and frustration.

Ice Skating gives young people self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-assurance.

Many of the Skaters at Sprinker Recreation have gone on to have careers in skating with Disney on Ice and tour the world bringing joy to other young children. Others have gone on to become coaches, helping the next generation of skaters succeed.

You may think that a local kid doesn’t have a chance but Ashley Wagner, the reigning US Women’s Champion skated at Sprinker when she was young.

When you support young ice skaters you are not just donating to a sport, you are giving these children life lessons that they will take with them into adulthood. Please sponsors Meagan so that she can go to Pacific Coast Sectionals in November.

Any amount is appreciated. To contribute to Meagan’s fundraising to make her dream come true.

Here is an estimation of the costs for my trip to Pacific Coast Sectionals:

Pacific Coast Sectionals--Oakland, CA, Nov. 19-23
Entry Fee—$200
Practice Ice—$200
Travel Expenses—1200
Coach’s Fees & Expenses—$800
Estimated Total—$3200


Meagan and her little sister Emma share time together on the ice. Meagan is helping Emma learn how to stay upright on those thin blades. The two sisters are inseparable. Emma watches her big sister skate and is learning from Meagan to work hard at what you love, stay focused on your dream, and how to get back up when you fall.

Meagan is a role model not only for her sister but for all young skaters who aspire to excellence in sport. She is a strong competitor but also has wonderful team spirit cheering on her fellow skaters and competitors.

Meagan’s dad has served in the US Army for 14 years, protecting our country. He served 3 tours in Iraq, and 1 tour in Afghanistan. Meagan’s mom works part-time while raising their two daughters.

Both parents work hard to support Meagan’s dreams but skating costs are high as Meagan goes up the ranks quickly with her talent and exceptional artistry.

At Regionals, Meagan’s dad was so proud of her he scooped her up holding her in his arms with a big bear hug. Meagan’s mom had tears of joy. To see their precious daughter skate so well was an amazing feeling for them both.
