Every year, the CIFSC board nominates and votes for one outstanding volunteer within our club. We appreciate all of the parents who work tirelessly to make our club the best it can be. However, this year we recognize Trisha Hudack as our Volunteer of the Year.
Trisha not only serves as our club’s Vice President, but she also coordinates our Spring/Summer Ice Packages and is our Test Session Co-Chair. If your skater participated in our annual test session or Red Panther Highschool competition, you remember the snowstorm that weekend. Trisha’s quick thinking rerouted our judges from Chicago to Madison when their flight to Mosinee was canceled. She then drove to Madison late Friday night, through the storm, to get our judges to town. Without her, the event would have been canceled.
Thank you for your hard work and dedication, Trisha. Congratulations on being our Volunteer of the Year!
Join us for some fun on the ice to enhance your skating talent! Collaboratively we have about 40 years of figure skating coaching experience, and we are ready to share some of our knowledge with you! We are offering a series of classes once per month this spring and summer. Each class will have a unique focus that will help develop and polish your skating skills.
The registration deadline is April 18. You can pick and choose which ones you want, or take them all.
The Ice Show Volunteer Sign-Up is available here. Just a reminder that there is a $50 an hour fee for any volunteer hours not completed (4 hours for one skater, 6 hours for multiple skaters). Each family, whose skater is participating, must complete one hour of time at the ice show (2 hours for multiple skaters). Ice Show picture day hours do count towards your Ice Show requirements. All hours must be completed or paid for prior to being eligible to register for any Spring/Summer ice. If no Spring/Summer ice is requested, the fee will need to be paid before your skater is eligible for package ice in the fall.
Sign-up is due March 28. Each 1 hour session will cost $12 per skater. Walk on rate is $15.00 per freestyle session. Skaters must be signed up for at least 1 freestyle session to be eligible to walk-on.
It’s that time of year to nominate new board members. Please send nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 11th. Please consider nominating someone you think will be a good candidate for the position, or yourself!
