FFFSC awarded series trophyPublished 10:53am Wednesday, March 27, 2013
The Fergus Falls Skating Club was represented by competitors at the Willmar, St. Cloud, Wahpeton, Fergus Falls, and Alexandria Basic Skills Competitions.
We are very proud to have such wonderful and talented skaters representing our club and community throughout the year in these various locations.
They all skated very well and, of course, had tons of fun. The Fergus Falls Skating Club is one of four clubs that sponsors the Central Minnesota Basic Skills Competition Series. Skaters that participate in the series earn points for each event at each competition depending on the placing they receive.
At the final competition within the series, Alexandria’s Battle of the Blades Competition, skaters are not only awarded for their performance at the competition, but also for their overall performance in the series. A traveling trophy for the club that has the most series participants is also awarded. For the second year in a row, Fergus Falls Skating Club was awarded the traveling trophy. Congratulations skaters.
Area skaters participate in local figure skating competitions. Skaters ranging in age, some as young as three, participated in local skating competitions.
Many young skaters participated in the Basic Skills Mini Series. The mini series consists of four competitions: Willmar, St. Cloud, Fergus Falls, and Alexandria. The competitors earned points at each of these competitions which was tallied at the end of the season. The competitors than earn an award based on their overall placement of the series. It is really fun to watch the skaters progress throughout the year.
For the second year in a row, Fergus Falls Figure Skating Club (FFFSC) was awarded the Series Traveling Trophy. The Traveling Trophy is awarded to the club which has the most participants in the Mini Series.
Although many of the young skaters pictured took place in the mini series, the FFFSC had a number of skaters who took part in the competition that took place right here at the Community Ice Arena. Some girls even competed in a competition for the first time this year.
We have a figure skating club that continues to grow and we are blessed with wonderful, dedicated coaches and skaters. Our skaters work hard throughout.
