A fantastic performance by all our skaters today, well done Everyone!!
A huge big thank you to all the coaches for preparing choreographies, running extra practices, for all the encouragement and, especially, for the example of hard work (and excellent work) that they offer to their junior skaters.
A special thanks to all the parents who baked, cooked, served hot drinks, lifted furniture, played music, presented, cleaned up… you really are amazing!
We wish you a very Happy Christmas and a fantastic 2020. We look forward to seeing you back… next week!
(Classes will run during the holidays excluding 24th, 25th and 26th December :-))
From all CFSA coaches and officials
We are really looking forward to our Christmas show this Saturday at 4.00pm in Little Island Sports Complex.
All skaters performing should be there before 2.00 pm for a final rehearsal (no need to wear your costumes). All spectators should come in later, after 3.15 please.
Please ensure that your skates are in order (check with Kelle if using club skates).
All skaters and coaches have been working really hard to prepare for the show. We hope that you enjoy every minute of it!
See you all there,
Just some clarifications about this Saturday’s test:
You can come to the hall from 2.00pm (unless you are already there for your normal class);
Level 1 test starts at 2.30 sharp, higher levels to follow. Full timetable is on display at the hall.
Please wear either a skating dress/skirt and top, black leggings with a top/jacket, or club uniform. No hoodies, loose jumpers or baggy pants. Long hair tied up.
Certificates will be handed out at the end of the test, at about 4.15.
Please note that criteria for passing any particular level are quite strict, so if you don’t pass a level it only means that you need more work, not that you are a bad skater. If you keep practising, you will be more than likely to pass it the next time!
Any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.
See you on Saturday!
All skaters are invited to take par in our Christmas Show on Saturday 14th December at 4.00pm in Little Island Sports Complex.
