On Saturday June 25th, our skaters were able to enjoy the teaching skills of renowned choreographer, Sarah Kawahara, pictured in the center of the skaters wearing a bright pink jacket.
The skaters enjoyed, performed and absorbed as Sarah presented her “Palette of Choreography Workshop” at the San Diego Ice Arena from 12:00pm – 6:00pm. This is just another example of how the San Diego Figure Skating Club is committed to encourage, develop and educate their elite competitive skaters!

We wish the UCSD figure skating the best of luck as they travel to Delaware to compete at the Intercollegiate Championships at the University of Delaware! This is the first time they have qualified for nationals since the team came together 4 years ago. Skate great UCSD!
SDFSC is proud to have 18 skaters that are now International Gold Medalists!
Our Senior Team del Sol was not only chosen to represent Team USA internationally, but they won the Gold medal at the 2016 Trophy D’ Ecosse Championships in Dumfries, Scotland as well as two “Most Entertaining Performance” Awards!
These skaters came from different backgrounds; some from Ladies & Men’s Singles, some from Ice Dance & Pairs and others started out directly in the Synchronized Skating discipline.

The synchronized skating season concluded in Kalamazoo, MI at the US Synchronized Skating Championships. Some teams endured more than 24 hours of travel time due to snow storms in the mid-west and battled various injuries and still delivered respectable performances:

Congratulations to all the coaches, skaters, managers and families for another great season.
