"Figure It Out" skating event coming to Apex July 30

posted Jul 20, 2017, 10:25 AM by Columbine Figure Skating

Mark your calendars!  On Sunday, July 30th from 10am to 1pm the World Figure Organization is hosting a figures workshop at Apex Ice Arena.  Columbine Figure Skating club is a proud sponsor of this event! The workshop called "Figure It Out" is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the grass roots of skating and get out on the ice and make some beautiful figure 8s and specialty patterns. First timers are welcome. 

Figures was a required component of skating from its start, all the way up to the '90s.  It is considered a great skill builder for skaters, helping them learn to use the entire blade and all of the various edges.  It also builds core strength.  

This event is open to all skaters and will include a workshop - time to practice and develop these skills - and will be followed by an optional exam and a competition for those interested.  Visit the website, talk to your coach or Nancy Grieder for more information.  

We also want you to mark your calendars for September 28th through October 1st when the 2017 World Figure & Fancy Skating Championships World Junior and World Skating Festival will be held in Vail, CO.  It was just announced that Olympic Champion Dorothy Hamill will be a Special Guest and Honorary Referee.
