Fall Freestyle Session Pre-Registration changes

As we head into the school year, we are making some changes to the ice arena pre-registration process for Freestyle sessions to accommodate the varying schedules our athletes need to navigate.

Beginning next week, you will register for 20 minute sessions. The coaches will be scheduling breaks to hopefully maximize the skater's ice time and allow more skaters to take advantage of our busy morning ice time.

For instance, if you are skating 5:40-7:00am, you would register for 5:40-6am, 6:-6:20am, 6:20-6:40am and 6:40-7am.

The cost will be the same, but this will allow for more flexibility.

Fall Off-ice classes open for Registration

Fall off-ice programs will look a little bit different as we continue to navigate the uncertainty of Covid-19. Class sizes will be limited.

All classes held at Park City Ice Arena will continue to require online pre-registration on a weekly basis. Our team of highly qualified coaches will rotate through the weekly class offerings to provide our athletes with a well-rounded training experience.

All Ballet/Contemporary dance classes held at the MARC will require program pre-registration for the entire session of classes. Katie Johnson will teach both Ballet & Contemporary dance classes this year.

Fall Off-ice schedule

Register for Fall Club ice!

We are excited to offer the opportunity to enhance their training with the purchase of club ice time.

PCA/FSCPC will be offering seven workshop opportunities this year - separate trainings for coaches, parents and athletes. More information will be sent out as available. The club is providing the workshops free to our members, but we will be asking all skaters/parents to purchase the $6 PCA workbooks, which will be used throughout the year. 

PCA/FSCPC Mission: To educate and actively support the Figure Skating Club of Park City in providing youth athletes valuable, non-cognitive skills that will benefit them in athletic competitions, classroom, community and career.

No Live Jans Winter Welcome Event but Opportunity Drawing

Opportunity Drawing - we will have an opportunity drawing this fall.  Just like previous years any tickets sold that are credited to your club will go back to your club at 100%. The tickets will be $50 each and all sales will happen on-line.  This year’s prize will be a deluxe package to next year’s JANS Winter Welcome scheduled for October 23, 2021.  

Package will include:

Virtual Silent Auction 

YSA will hold an online auction the weekend JANS Winter Welcome was scheduled.  We would like to have a small number of high value items. Obviously exotic vacations to far off locations are probably not going to sell however bikes, paddle boards and stay-cation type items will be very popular.  Please start brainstorming and acquiring what will sell well for your club.  We are asking for items with a value over $2500.  Again, just like previous years, the proceeds from packages that clubs bring into the auction will go back to the club at 100%.  The deadline for auction items is October 1st and we will be accepting 1-2 items per club/division.
