Our home test session and high school competition is Saturday, December 10th. We are in need of volunteers for this event. Please sign up here.
If your skater is on the highschool team, you are required to volunteer 2 hours this day. These hours are separate from your club volunteer hour time. If your skater is participating in the test session (registration coming soon), you are required to volunteer 2 hours this day. This will count towards your club volunteer time.
If your skater is both on the HS team AND testing, 2 hours minimum is required and those 2 hours will fulfil your HS obligation. Any hours beyond the first 2 will be applied to your club volunteer requirement.
Ice Show Registration opens on Saturday, October 29th. The link to registration can be found on the KB Willett Ice Arena website. Skaters who are eligible, and interested, in trying out for a specialty, solo, or tot leader role must be registered for the ice show prior to tryouts (November 13).
If your skater earns a solo or specialty number, or will be performing as part of a synchoo team, highschool team, or as a senior, additional fees will be billed this year. Due to some redistribution of responsibilities the practice ice costs will now be divided by the skaters on the ice. The board is committed to minimizing these costs, as much as we can. We strongly encourage families to take advantage of our credit earning opportunities to assist paying these additional fees. RaiseRight (formally known as Scrip) is an easy way to build credit. For more information regarding this opportunity, please reach out to Cassie Tudor cassiejtudor@admin
Update 10/28/2022: After some productive conversations with the city about the ice show, the practice ice costs will not be passed onto skaters this year. Please prepare for the possibility that skaters may be billed next year. The best way to keep our costs low is to pack that arena for the shows. So please start spreading the word. Share the event on social media and, when the time comes, get those yard signs out.
We wanted to make sure families were aware of these changes, prior to registration. If you have additional questions, please let us know.
We have a wonderful opportunity for CIFSC and Learn to Skate families to once again participate in the Stevens Point Downtown Holiday Parade on Wednesday, November 16 at 6PM. We need your help to walk alongside the float and pass out candy!
This activity is optional, but we’d love to see our skaters (parents welcome too) partake in this fun event for our community!
Our Butter Braid fundraiser ends this Sunday. Please submit your order form and one check made out to CIFSC. These should be placed in our lock box inside the rink by 8 p.m. on Sunday, October 23.

The CIFSC will not be participating in the Stevens Point Downtown Holiday Parade this year as we do not have a volunteer coordinator.We now have a volunteer coordinator for the Stevens Point Downtown Holiday Parade on November 16th. Stay tuned for details!
We will have a dress-up day for Halloween on Tuesday, October 25th and Saturday, October 29th. Skaters are welcome to wear a costume during class if they wish as long as it does not inhibit their skating skills or leave debris on the ice. We will also be incorporating some fun fall-themed games and activities during class time.
Fall session progress reports will be handed out after class on Nov. 1st or 5th. Winter session registration begins on November 5th at noon.
Last year the club made a first attempt at using a digital music player in place of CDs. This year we have purchased a device strictly for this purpose and we need your help to try it out.
In order to play this year’s music electronically, we will need skaters or their coaches to upload a digital version of their solo, duet, artistic piece, and dance songs to the folder that matches their package.
The Downtown Stevens Point Holiday Parade will be on Wednesday, November 16 from 6:00-7:00. We are looking for a parent(s) willing to coordinate our club’s participation. Last year we also invited skaters from our Learn to Skate Program to join us and we had a great response.
This is a final reminder about the butterbraid sales beginning on Sunday October 9th. Please see information below. In addition, I wanted to let you know that I dropped off the actual order forms in the form holder next to our testing board at the Willett. Feel free to grab one if needed.
