Talk to your coach or download our application packet for further information about how you can participate in this exciting event! Let us know if you are willing to help with planning.
Dear YFSC Members and Friends,
It's hard to believe, but our fall sessions are almost over, and it's time to plan for our "spring" term, which will begin on January 4th.
First, though, I want to remind everyone that our fall sessions will meet at their regular times through December 22nd. This includes Basic Skills on Saturday, Dec. 21, which is a make-up for our first Saturday in September, which was cancelled.
Also, Saturday, December 21st will also be our Holiday Party, which will run from 10:45-11:45, immediately following the Basic Skills session. We will have a demonstration by the Team Esprit Beginner Synchronized skating team, followed by a Grand March and open skating, not to mention hot chocolate and snacks. This party is for ALL club members, and there is no charge. Family members are welcome to join us.
Spring Registration: The Spring Registration Form for Current Members and Spring Calendar are attached. Please complete the registration form and return it with your payment no later than December 22rd. We will be happy to accept forms and payment at the rink during our sessions. Otherwise, please mail them to Mary D'Agostino at the address indicated on the form. Please renew as soon as possible so that we will know who to expect and can plan accordingly. We cannot guarantee a spot for you in the spring unless we have your forms by the due date.
If you have enjoyed our program, we hope that you will invite your friends to join us. Please direct them to our website, www.yale.edu/yfsc, for membership forms and registration information.
Bridge, Dance, and Synchro Classes: These classes are not only open to higher level Basic Skills skaters, but are encouraged. Visit our website for more information and minimum qualifications. We must enforce a 4 skater minimum on these classes, and sadly we only had enough people to hold the Sunday bridge class in the fall. If we have enough interest, we'll hold the others in the spring, so be sure to let us know if you'd be interested.
Yale Basic Skills Competition: Monday, January 20th. Are you ready? Be sure to mail your application by December 13th. If you have questions or need help completing the form, please be sure to ask. If you would like to have a few private lessons before the competition, or would like a coach to help put together a program to music, be sure to ask about that too. It's not too late! We're getting excited as we see several new programs coming together.
Test Session: We are planning a test session (for those beyond the Basic Skills) for some time in March. We will let you know just as soon as we have a date.
Volunteers: Volunteers are always needed to help with Club activities. In particular we need help for our Basic Skills Competition on Monday, January 20th Please indicate on the form how you can help, and feel free to approach any of our board members with questions or suggestions. Their names and numbers are listed on our website.
With best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season,
