USFS National Components Camp News

Miami FSC USFS Components Camp SkatersComponents Camp Miami FSC Parents

Miami FSC Skaters are training at the USFS National Components Camp in Geneva, Illinois at the Fox Valley Ice Arena April 17-19, 2015. Pictured above from left to right are Danielle Cooner, Isabella Vazquez, Veronica Manes and Ariana Silva-Falcon.

This is a national training camp open to athletes who competed at the most recent regional championships. It will feature on-ice and off-ice classes designed to help competitive skaters improve their program components mark.

U.S. Figure Skating's Athlete Development Department is responsible for the curriculum, faculty and design of this camp. Athletes are assigned to "teams" of 20 skaters of similar skill, age and skating discipline. Athletes stay with their team for the entire weekend and learn in a fun, group environment.

The focus of the camp is on developing skills in a relaxed setting to help competitive skaters improve their scores in the five program components areas: Skating Skills, Transitions, Choreography, Performance/Execution and Musical Interpretation.

All presenters are selected for their expertise in teaching athletes "the second mark" and for their experience in working with groups of athletes. Singles, pairs and ice dancing athletes have the opportunity to focus on developing their inner artist and performer, their skating skills, edges and turns, making friends and having a blast while not having to worry about the technical aspect of the sport!

Great Results at the Florida Open!

Congratulations to all of the Miami FSC skaters who competed at the Florida Open in Maitalnd, Florida April 10 to 13. Our skaters performed exceptionally well with many medals received and two making the final rounds for the hotly contested Juvenile and Intermediate levels!

Now it is time to help the club with fundraisers to help the club get enough money to continue the activities such as Test Sessions, Club end of the year banquet and annual meeting .

The first fundraiser was held on May 1, 2014 on the Thursday evening public session.  The ticket desk was run by Club President Karen Kammer and board member Lee Lewedag. Many thanks to DJ Eddie for the great job he does! Stay tuned for information about our next fundraiser!
