Hello HRSSC Families,
Hope this finds everyone in good spirits as the busy days of December get rolling and lots of our skaters have been singing and dancing away at holiday concerts.
First off, a huge Thank You to all of our volunteers and officials- club members, alumni, family, and friends who joined us at the CITADEL CUP and for helping to make the weekend a great success. We were excited to see lots of members try out new officiating and volunteer positions. Every little bit helps and all together we were able to host a successful meet and welcome skaters and families from across the region.
Congratulations to all of our skaters – lots of personal bests; ribbons and medals; first tries at new distances; and first tries at a competition! Thank You for being brave athletes, working hard to bring all your skills and training together on race day, and for being great hosts.
Thank You to our coaches, CJ and Jessica for the support and keeping our big group of skaters ready to go all weekend.
