Dear <<First Name>>
The Inside Edge wishes our SCSF mothers a Happy Mother's Day! We appreciate all you do for your skaters, families, and Club.
There will be no Club ice at YBISC on May 7, due to a test session
Reminder- Starting May 14, SCSF Saturday Club Ice is expanded to 2 hours, 5:45 AM to 7:45 AM. If you are a Belmont Iceland skater looking for Saturday morning ice, come to YBISC for the Club session!
SCSF offers new expanded weekly 2 hour Club sessions on Saturday mornings at Yerba Buena Ice Skating & Bowling Center for general skating practice, private lessons, and critiques upon request. These sessions will begin at 5:45 AM and conclude at 7:45 AM. Club session prices will stay the same at $7.50 per half-hour. If you are using Club Ice fairly regularly, you can purchase a punch card using cash or check. The card gives you twenty 1/2 hour sessions for $125 which works out to $6.25 per half-hour. The Board heartily encourages ALL SCSF members to skate at YBISC on Saturday mornings, and take advantage of these two hour Club sessions.

La Jolla, CA – Saturday, July 30th, Registration closes 7/17
What is S.T.A.R.S.?
S.T.A.R.S. (Standardized Testing of Athleticism to Recognize Skaters) is a fun, one day off-ice testing event designed to provide skaters and coaches with specific information about the athletic abilities specifically related to the skaters’ on-ice skills. The purpose of S.T.A.R.S. is to help you train your athleticism ahead of your skills curve and also to help your body be as injury resistant as possible.
The S.T.A.R.S. combine consists of 15 tests in three distinct areas:1) Agility/Balance/Coordination,
2) Strength/Power, 3) Flexibility
The tests allow athletes to compare their results with others of the same skating level, age and gender across the country. Individual data is never shared. All S.T.A.R.S. combines will have an interactive seminar in addition to the off-ice testing. This year’s seminar topic is “Taking S.T.A.R.S. to the Ice,” which dives into relating athleticism and athletic ability to how you learn and perform on-ice skills. This fun, interactive seminar is open to all participating athletes and their coaches and parents.
To participate athletes must be six years of age at the date of the combine; have passed their pre-preliminary moves in the field test
For more information about S.T.A.R.S., including a complete list of participating cities and ways to prepare for the combine, visit www.starscombine.org.
