2019 Adult/Synchro Exhibition and Critique

One of the ways we help our skaters get prepared for the competitive season is to hold an exhibition and critique.  This gives skaters a chance to perform in front of a crowd and have judges provide feedback on their performances.  It gives us a chance to see our skaters if we cannot make it to one of their competitions.

Please come out and be a part of the crowd on Saturday, January 19, 2019 from 3:15 pm to 4:45 pm at the San Diego Ice Arena.

Adult competitive skaters interested in participating should read information letter and complete registration no later than January 7, 2019 (no extensions on this deadline).
