Congratulations to the SCSF Graduating Seniors

The USFS Graduating Senior Award program recognizes student-athletes who have worked hard to pursue figure skating while maintaining their academics. While figure skating is not a traditional school sport, it requires the same dedication, perseverance and time management as any varsity sport. It is the goal of U.S. Figure Skating to help ensure these student-athletes are recognized for those skills.

There are four categories of recognition based on competition and test achievements in all disciplines of figure skating. Student-athletes are rewarded based on their highest level of achievement at either the Platinum, Gold, Silver, or Bronze level. There is no cost for this program and the student-athletes apply online by March 1 of their senior year.

Following the application review process, U.S. Figure Skating sends the student-athlete their awards certificate, congratulatory letter and lapel pin. This year, awards are being presented to nearly 800 student-athletes.

Congratulations, Skating Club of San Francisco Graduating Seniors and Awardees!

Lauren Louie, Platinum

Joelle Faybishenko, Gold

Jenny Mao, Gold

Dinh Tran, Platinum

Shannon Lin, Silver

I hope this email continues to find everyone safe, sheltered in place, stocked with toilet paper, and healthy during these unprecedented times.

As the SCSF Board continues to monitor the recommendations set forth by the CDC for returning to the ice, we want to remind our community of a grant opportunity that provides supplemental financial support to SCSF Home Club applicants.

The Hickox Memorial Fund Grant is open to coaches, skaters, and officials who have been SCSF Home Club members for at least three years from the date of the grant application. Additional details around the grant and the grant application can be found here: https://scsf.org/grant-policy/.
