WELCOME to CFSC’s New Home!

CFSC is proud to announce the launch of our new website.

We’ve designed our new home with skaters, coaches, and families in mind and anticipate you will appreciate the more contemporary format and ease of use. Over time, we will integrate even more new features, but below are some things that will get you started:

  • The old site will no longer be updated. All new information will appear at this site ONLY.  (Did you know you can subscribe – look to the top-right on the sidebar? As a subscriber, you will receive an email when new posts occur.)
  • We’re still moving. The old site will remain active for at least 30 days to allow you to download any information you would like to keep. Most of the info will appear here as well, but just in case something you love doesn’t make it, we want to give you an opportunity to save your favorite memories.

Sincere thanks to the numerous dedicated members, who over the years, nurtured and managed the old site so that CFSC members had timely access to important information and could celebrate each others’ successes. We look forward to doing more of the same as we incorporate social media and move to a new platform.  Questions? Suggestions? Contact me.

Holiday Season Competition is just 1 week from today

The behind-the-scenes team of the Holiday Season Competition is ready to go and excited to welcome you to the OSU ice rink next Saturday.  As many of you know, depending on your arrival time, traffic and parking may be of concern. Recently we send an email with detailed information about traffic and parking, but a few of those bounced back. So, we’re posting it here, too.

If you haven’t already, double check the online searchable schedule to confirm your events. If you have any questions about your events, please contact Mel Shilling

And, if you are a local parent or family member and haven’t scheduled your volunteer time, Jen Beck would love to hear from you.

Good luck to skaters and coaches as you prepare for the competition in these last few days.
