Last weekend, skaters representing the Birmingham Figure Skating Club (BFSC) traveled to Nashville for the annual Skate Nashville competition, a non-qualifying United States Figure Skating (USFS) event. Based on total medals, the BFSC came home with the Newton T Todd and Laura Maki Memorial Team Trophy.
Skaters & Events
Skating against over 300 competitors from five states, 28 skaters ranging in age from 6 to adult brought home 15 1st place medals, 10-second place medals, and three third place medals. They skated several events, including:
- Learn to Skate
- Light Entertainment Showcase
- Novice Freeskate
- Solo Combined Ice Dance
One of the first competitions of the season in preparation for USFS qualifying events, they return to their home rink, the Pelham Civic Complex and Ice Arena, to tweak their programs and continue their intense on-ice and off-ice training with our top-notch coaches.
