Each year we rely on generous volunteers for all the functions of the club. And each year we choose two special people who have gone above and beyond to ensure the club’s success. This year we recognize Karen Aiken and Lisa Stone.
Each year we ask members to submit photos and videos to help celebrate our club and the skater’s achievements. Here is the result from the 2018-2019 membership year including a few alumni.
The new Board of Directors were installed at the Annual Membership Meeting on June 15, 2019. Complete contact information available on the Contacts page.
Congratulations from the San Diego Figure Skating Club and Well Done!

Kate Liang started skating at SDIA’s Learn to Skate Program as a tot in 2003. Within six months of taking classes Kate joined Shining Blades and thus the beginning of her journey with synchronized skating. After skating with Shining Blades for three years Kate decided she wanted to be more competitive and began skating for Team del Sol and Karen Wiesmeier. Ten years later, having skated Juvenile through Senior Level, Kate had earned a U.S. Synchronized Skating Championship at the Intermediate level in 2013, an Intermediate Pewter medal in 2011, ten Pacific Coast Sectionals Championships, and at the Senior level, an International Gold Medal in 2016 at Trophy d’Escosse in Dumfries, Scotland. In addition, she earned gold medals in both Moves in the Field and Dance and did some Free Skate tests as well. She served as the SDFSC Jr. Board President for 3 years and was Volunteer of the Year in 2015.
Now in 2019, Kate has been skating with the University of Michigan Synchronized Skating Team for the past three years at the Collegiate level earning back-to-back U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships in 2017 and 2018 as well as a Bronze Medal in 2019. As an all-student run team, Kate has been in a leadership role for the past two years, one as the VP of Travel and Competition and this year as President. Kate was re-elected to serve as President for her senior year. Kate continues to be passionate about synchronized skating and eventually wants to skate on an adult team once her education is completed.
