September 2013 Greetings from the President! Welcome to the 20132014 skating season. I am very excited to be your new President. We have a very busy year stacking up for our club. Skate St. Moritz is our first clubsponsored event followed by the Pacific Coast Sectional Championships, the competition that qualifies skaters to Nationals. As always these events require a lot of manpower and I encourage each and every member to give back to our club and the sport you love by donating a few (or many) hours of your time. As you are aware, we are an allvolunteer club. What this means is that everything we do is coordinated by our membership. Whether you can give a few hours or many days, the club could not function without your help. If you get a call or an email requesting your time, please don't just say "no" and instead give some serious thought as to how you may be able to help out. A shared workload by many volunteers makes it easier for everyone. Without the help of our volunteers there would be no Clubsponsored events, which range from tests and competitions to critiques for our competitors and seminars for skaters and parents. I wish you the best of luck in the coming season and HAPPY SKATING!!!

    Greetings from the President!

    Welcome to the 2013-2014 skating season. I am very excited to be your new President. We have a very busy year stacking up for our club. Skate St. Moritz is our first club-sponsored event followed by the Pacific Coast Sectional Championships, the competition that qualifies skaters to Nationals. As always these events require a lot of manpower and I encourage each and every member to give back to our club and the sport you love by donating a few (or many) hours of your time. As you are aware, we are an all-volunteer club. What this means is that everything we do is coordinated by our membership. Whether you can give a few hours or many days, the club could not function without your help. If you get a call or an email requesting your time, please don't just say "no" and instead give some serious thought as to how you may be able to help out. A shared workload by many volunteers makes it easier for everyone. Without the help of our volunteers there would be no Club-sponsored events, which range from tests and competitions to critiques for our competitors and seminars for skaters and parents. I wish you the best of luck in the coming season and HAPPY SKATING!!! Susan Rogers Bonn Look for this button to learn more about volunteer opportunities at St. Moritz:

    St Moritz Ice Skating Club http://www.stmoritzisc.org P.O. Box 72452 Oakland CA 94612 Dublin Iceland 7212 San Ramon Road Dublin CA 94568 Oakland Ice Center/Sharks Ice 519 18th Street Oakland CA 94612 President: Susan Bonn Vice President: Phillip DiGuglielmo 2nd Vice President: Jean Fahmie Treasurer: Katie Specht Secretary: Jacki Paytas Directors: Lisa Erle Justin Dillon Teressa Vellrath Membership Chair: Jean Fahmie

  • Breaking News!

    Skate St. Moritz The 33rd Annual Skate St. Moritz competition will be held Sept. 20 - 22, 2013 at the Oakland Ice Center. We will have approximately 300 competitors and 40 officials participating this year. Help is needed as we will need shifts filled beginning with set up and practice ice on Friday and all the way through to the break down on Sunday evening. Be on the lookout for all requests for volunteers and sign up to help your club put on a well run and enjoyable competition for everybody! For more information on Skate St. Moritz, please visit our website: http://www.stmoritzisc.org/competitions.htm Looking for New Junior Board Members! A new year for the Jr. Board is beginning and we are looking for new members. This past year we have hosted Coaches Appreciation Day for our Dublin and Oakland coaches. We have bonded over creating our own Holiday show number, at pool parties, at Great America, and during our Skate-A-Thon Fundraiser. This next year will be just as exciting. The Jr. Board looks forward volunteering at St. Moritz and Sectionals this coming fall. If you or your skater is interested in joining the Jr. Board they must be under 18 years old and a member of the SMISC. Please send a brief paragraph to Teressa Vellrath at [email protected] about why you are interested in joining the Jr. Board. Please do so by September 8th as the next Jr. Board meeting will be in late September. The New U.S. Figure Skating SafeSport Program

    U.S. Figure Skating strives to provide a safe environment for its members and to protect the opportunity of its members to participate in the sport in an atmosphere that is free of harassment and abusive practices. SafeSport Program provides resources for all members to help identify abuse and misconduct, outlines steps that can be taken to reduce it, and offers procedures to respond to it. For more information, go to: http://www.usfsa.org/shell.asp?sid=49066 A USFS requirement of the SafeSport Program is having at least 3 members take part in the SafeSport Training Webinar. To ensure dispersed learnings we are looking for at least 4 Adult skating members - 1 from Oakland, 1 from Dublin, and 1 from each Synchro team. Additionally, we would like an under-18 member. No prior experiences or knowledge is required - just an interest in ensuring the safest environments for all SMISC skaters. If interested in participating in this critical program please email Jacki Paytas at [email protected]c.org
