The new bright LED lights in our rink made a huge difference in getting better photographs of the event also as you’ll be able to see. Thank you and good luck to all our skaters!

Congratulations Ashley Wagner on Gold at Skate America 2016

We would like to congratulate Ashley Wagner on her Gold Medal performance at Skate America 2016.

Wagner won the Progressive Skate America women’s title Saturday, edging California training partner Mariah Bell.

Japan’s Shoma Uno topped the men’s short program earlier, followed by Americans Adam Rippon and Jason Brown.

Wagner, the world silver medalist, has now won her second Skate America title in five seasons.

 ”Today was a little sticky, but at the end of the day I got the job done,” Wagner said. ”I think I built upon what I did at the Japan Open. It felt like more of a complete program and I think that’s what pulled me through today. Beyond that, I think I have some serious spin levels to work on going into Cup of China; they were dearly missed today.”

In Memory of Coach Rick Stengle

In Memory of Coach Rick Stengle

Coach Rick Stengle passed away Sunday morning after suffering several strokes in the past 6 weeks. He skated at SCW as a competitor and then coached full-time at SCW from 1983-2011 and he was an 8-time National Freestyle Skating Coach. He coached part-time for a couple of years after 2011, and often would stop by during his retirement to catch up on rink news. He taught all levels of free skating at all ages and even taught low level ice dancing. Rick had a B.A. from ENC in Boston. Rick will be greatly missed by many of his friends, past students and close associates. Funeral arrangements will be announced at a future date.

Congratulation to Biechler & Dodge

Julia Biechler & her partner, Damian Dodge placed in 4th place in the Senior Dance level at the 2016 Lombardia Trophy Competition in Bergamo, Italy. This was their very first International competition as part of Team USA. Congratulations to both! SCW is proud of you!
