Communicate With Club Members

       Every club needs to have a program that actively involves regular communications with its members about club functions and activitie that are both skating related and about social/fun activities.

       It is important to stress the need for a club's board to be open, transparent, and making a concerted effort to involve existing and new club members as volunteers who develop and staff activities/events that encourage and support the aspirations of its skaters.

      All volunteer organization share a common problem in attracting and retaining volunteers. Most organization share an unfortunate inability to develop and implement a plan to involve their members. It takes time and training to recruit individuals who have the willingness to become a volunteer. It also require a training program for the positions to be filled after determining what existing talents and interests they have.

Ice Skating Information & Resources

hosted by
San Diego Figure Skating Communications

A web site for figure skaters of all ages involved in
Basic Skating Skills and USFS Figure Skating programs

The information on this site is provided to support skater's efforts to
achieve their full potential in the pursuit of his/her skating goals, and to transfer
those skills to their future education, career, and other life activities.

    Information is an important tool that provides a basis for the articles being developed. The goal is to help facilitate communications between judges and coaches that provides the technical descriptions coaches use in their teaching and for judges the basis they use to arrive at the minimum standard for passing each level of tests.

  Comments and suggestions are welcomed so a balance of different perspectives can be achieved. Input from coaches and judges will help to achieve a consensus. We hope our efforts will result in skaters who are well prepared to test and receive a uniform evaluation by judges from rink to rink.

San Diego Figure Skating Communications (SDFSC) goal is to provide information
that encourages participation and achievement in the sport of figure skating.
Articles are continuously under development to serve as reading/reference
materials for seminars with an audience of skaters, parents, coaches, and judges.

Suggestions and comments from rink management, coaches,
     choreographers, judges, skaters, and parents are welcomed.
