Events were hosted in every state, includ- ing Hawaii and Alaska. A full list of event summaries can be found

MEDIACOM ICE RINK (SPRINGFIELD, MO.)


We set up a table in the lobby to talk about


figure skating, Basic Skills and our programs (plus hand out U.S. Figure Skating gifts). On the ice, we set up a stopping station, a gliding station, a turning station and a swizzle station. We used half of the ice for these four stations and the other half for skaters to practice. — Amy Torcasso, figure skating director
