Who are we?
We are a US Figure Skating club with hundreds of members who call sunny San Diego, California our home. Our home ice surface is the San Diego Ice Arena located in the community of Mira Mesa. Our satellite ice surface is the Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center located in the SDSU college area of San Diego.
Helping Our Skaters
Following the 1981 U.S. National Championships, the Club established the Founders Fund using the profits from Nationals. The purpose of the Founders Fund is to raise funds and distribute them to club members by means of grants for skating related activities. Since its inception, grants have been given every year to those skaters who qualify and compete at the Sectional or National level (both single skaters and precision team members). The fund has also made grants to the judges in our club to attend USFSA required judges schools. Our Program Development Committee is chartered with providing skating development programs for our skaters. The committee initialized our annual Moves in the Field Seminar, a 10 week course taught every summer, as well as hosted several other seminars including Dance, Introduction to Judging, and Understand the USFSA Scoring System. The committee is continuously evaluating new programs. The Club provides an annual Scholastic Achievement Award, which is given to the skater who excels on the ice and in the classroom. Scholarships are awarded at three academic levels, Junior High School, High School and Collegiate.
Our latest effort to help our skaters is the formation of a Competitive Skater Fund. This fund seeks to provide annual grants to our Singles, Pairs and Dance Skaters who go to Regionals, Sectionals, Nationals and International competitions. Funding is provided by donations and fundraising events such as raffles, restaurant profit share, scrip, and other programs. Grants are paid annually after the conclusion of Southwest Pacific Regional Championships.
