Spring Show 2023
Next year's Spring Show's theme is going to be BROADWAY!
We will have a meeting for anyone interested in participating in that show on Saturday, November 12th at 9:30 am, after freestyle ice time.
We understand that it seems early, but we would like to get a jump start on costumes and the lineup of songs. This way we will have a better chance of getting the costumes we would like to order, as they run out of stock very quickly.
Attendance of this meeting is required for anyone who wishes to participate in the show.
All skaters are welcome to sign up, even our youngest skaters! Each skater will required to perform in the opening number, closing number, and a group number with others in similar levels. Only skaters who are currently in Freeskate 1 and up will be given solos. More information will be given at the meeting.

In Skating This Month
Ilia Malini lands quad axel at Skate America, and at 17 yeas old, becomes youngest men's champion in the event's history. He opened his free skate program by landing the hardest of his 6 quad jumps - a 4 1/2 revolution axel with a forward takeoff. The other 5 quad jumps are 4 revolutions, making them 1/2 rotation fewer than the axel, and have backward takeoffs. Last month he was the first skater to land a quad axel in a competition. Malini told NBC Sports, "This morning, I wasn't really sure if I would attempt it or not. It cam over my head. Everyone's watching. I have to go for this. I went for it, and I just landed it, and I was in shock. I mean, the whole building was screaming for at least a couple of seconds after that. I didn't even hear the music after that. I didn't even know the music was still playing."
