“Choose Your Own” Summer Series Starts June 25th!

Hello skaters and families!
Snowcapped peaks are a backdrop to many Puget ...

Our Summer 2012 session begins this coming Monday, June 25th!  As summer is a busy time for all, we developed a “Choose Your Own” format to make it simple and easy to work around hectic summer schedules.

Classes will be held every Monday (5-6:15 pm) and Wednesday (5:15-6:30 pm) through the end of August, with the exception of July 4th (no classes this day!).  Class cost for pre-registered students (using form to self-select days) is $10/day.  Class cost for drop-in classes is $12/day.  If students would like to use practice ice without classes the cost is $7/day.  For more information please see Puget Sound Skating Summer 2012 registration form.

**Please note that all students must update their US Figure Skating Basic Skills Membership for the 2012-2013 year (current membership ends June 31st).  This fee is paid directly to US Figure Skating.**

Please let us know if you have any questions.  As always, we look forward to seeing you!

Thank you,

Welcome to PSS!!

Happy almost summer everyone!

Things have happened quickly for us this Spring and we wanted to let you all know what was new with the skating school!

Lisa has decided to move her Ice Angels program out of Puget Sound Hockey Center (PSHC) so Chelsey and I have decided to continue there with things on our own!  We are now operating under our new business: “Puget Sound Skating”.  Lisa has been a joy to work with and we will continue to collaborate with her in the future.  Things were just getting difficult for her living in Bellevue and operating a program in Tacoma.  We wish her the best of luck.

This summer, we have been given Thursday evenings for our group classes beginning June 16th!!!  Attached you will find our new registration form (Puget Sound Skating Summer 2011).  We have a ten-class session scheduled and are willing to pro-rate classes at the time of registration for those of you planning vacations this summer.  If you need pro-rated rates for Summer, please speak to Chelsey or I on Thursday to make arrangements.

In addition, we want to take this opportunity to welcome some new coaches and welcome back some others who have been missing (playing soccer) for awhile!

Tiffanie C has been assisting us in class on Saturdays for some time now.  Her energy is contagious and she has a great work ethic.  Tiffanie has experience skating on both types of blades so she may confuse you with her choice of skate each week!

Shannon B has been a student of and apprentice for Ice Angels for several years now.  She has an amazing talent in working with young children and we are so happy to have her on our coaching team.  This summer she will be working closely with the Girl Scouts, bringing in small troops each week for their own group lessons.

Emily N is back for good!!  Emily has a terrific knowledge of basic skills and the ability to bring out a skater’s best talents.  In addition to helping with group classes, Emily will be available to teach private lessons to skaters of any age and ability.  We are so happy to have her back with us!

We will be working hard to build our website and Facebook page this season.

Our program email address is: pugetsoundskating@gmail.com

We apologize for the late nature of this email, as I mentioned…things have happened really quickly

We look forward to seeing all of you!
