Will you be competing soon and want to try that new element in your program? Do you want more practice in a competition setting so that you can feel more prepared? Would you like to banish those competition jitters before the actual event? Or perhaps you want to try out your new competition outfit and perform for your family and friends? These are all great reasons to participate in the FSCO Exhibition Series. Each month from May through July, we will hold an exhibition where skaters can perform their program in a competition event setting. Skaters will need to wear their competition outfit, makeup, and hair. Participating skaters will be divided into warm up groups by level, with a 5 minute warmup for each group.
The exhibitions will be held on:
- Saturday, June 11 – 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
- Saturday, July 9 – 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
- Saturday, August 6 – 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
The exhibitions are open to skaters of ALL levels. You will need to pay 1 coupon or $13 cash for each program that you want to skate. There is a limit of 20 skaters per exhibition, so reserve your spot by emailing Andrea Williamson no later than the Wednesday before your preferred exhibition date.
The FSCO annual ice show will be held on Saturday, April 30th at 1:30 pm at Motto McLean Ice Arena in Hitchcock Park.
The show numbers will feature our FSCO Learn to Skate and competitive skaters in several large group, small group, and solo numbers. Admission is $7 for adults and $4 for children ages 12 and under (children 2 and under are free!) Tickets may be purchased at the door. We hope to see you there!
Skaters! Do you have any dresses or skates sitting around the house that you have outgrown? Or do you need to buy a new outfit for your next competition? If so, then we have the perfect opportunity for you! We will be holding a used apparel and skate sale at Motto McLean ice arena on Saturday, April 16th, from 8:45 to 11:30 am. Bring your gently used skates, skating outfits, or other skating equipment that you would like to sell. Make sure tags are securely attached to the item and clearly marked with your name, price, and sizing information. You can choose to consign your items (you keep 80% of the selling price) or to donate them to the club. These sales are the perfect opportunity to pick up a new competition outfit or purchase other skate apparel at a great price, so be sure to browse when you drop by! Any unsold merchandise will need to be picked up, so please plan to stop by and retrieve any of your remaining items at the end of the sale. Any items not picked up will be donated to Goodwill. If you have any questions, please contact our fundraiser coordinator, Laura.
