Parent Educations Seminar – 2/20
SCNV will be hosting a Parent Education Seminar for Club members on preparing for competitions. Competition Chair Melissa Mahle will present practical information for parents of skaters who are new to competitions and parents who would like a better understanding of the differences between types of events – well balanced verses Excel, for example. We’ll discuss some do’s and don’ts, and tactics on how to manage competition anxiety and encourage good sportsmanship. We will have a Q&A section, so bring your questions!

The Parent Education Seminar will be held on February 20 at 7:00pm via Zoom. It will be recorded, with the recording made available afterwards to those who are not available to attend the virtual discussion. Contact for Zoom link and more inforation.

Did You Know?!
As the 2022 Winter Olympics at Beijing concludes on 2/20, here’s a quote from the Olympic Gold Medalist in the women’s individual event, Anna Shcherbakova:

“I don’t know what will happen tomorrow and I still don’t know what my plans are in the future, so I can’t tell you about 2026,” Shcherbakova said. “But I can’t imagine my life without figure skating. Today, I have achieved result that is considered the pinnacle of sport.”
