SIGN UPS ARE LIVE!!!!!
Texas Gulf Coast FSC is thrilled to confirm that our summer seminar with the fabulous Sheila Thelen, Doug Mattis and John Zimmerman is a GO!!!!
Due to feedback from last year’s seminar we have split the seminar over 2 mornings and expanded the time on the ice from 35-45 min per session to a full hour! Skaters will be divided into 3 groups and will rotate between the 3 visiting coaches both days. Each day will have 2 on ice sessions and 1 off ice session. That is 2 full hours on ice and 1 hour of off ice time with the G2C coaches on both Monday and Tuesday!

Dear Texas Gulf Coast FSC and Sugar Land Skating Community,
The membership has done an amazing job at spreading the word to the community and gathering support to save our rink. TGCFSC along with Skate Therapy, Unity and the hockey community have been fantastic at contacting the media and spreading the word through friends and contacts. Please spread the word again and ask for a small donation. Working together we can bring the ice back for everyone.
Thank you so much. We could not have done this without the support of our wonderful members, the hockey community, Skate Therapy families and coaches and the amazing citizens of Sugar Land and surrounding cities.

MAY 20 – CLUB ICE
U.S. Figure Skating, with support from the Professional Skaters Association (PSA), has launched the SafeSport Program, which strives to provide a safe environment for its members and protect the opportunity to participate in an atmosphere that is free of harassment and abusive practices.
“U.S. Figure Skating is committed to providing a safe and positive environment for our members’ physical, emotional and social development and ensuring it promotes an environment free from abuse and misconduct,” U.S. Figure Skating President Patricia St. Peter said. “Through the U.S. Figure Skating SafeSport Program, U.S. Figure Skating is committed to providing the safest possible environment for all participants.”
The SafeSport Program applies to all U.S. Figure Skating clubs, programs, events and activities. It provides resources to help identify sexual, physical and emotional abuse and misconduct; bullying, threats and harassment; hazing and willfully tolerated misconduct. The SafeSport Program outlines steps that should be taken to reduce abuse and misconduct and offers procedures to respond to them.
Based on tenets of the U.S. Olympic Committee’s SafeSport program, U.S. Figure Skating has tailored the program to meet the specific needs of its membership. The organization will not tolerate or condone any form of harassment or abuse of any of its members, including athletes, coaches, officials, directors, employees, parents, volunteers or any other persons while they are participating in or preparing for a figure skating activity or event conducted under the auspices of U.S. Figure Skating.
“We applaud the efforts of U.S. Figure Skating in launching a targeted SafeSport program,” said Malia Arrington, USOC director of ethics and SafeSport. “Increasing efforts to prevent harassment and abuse at the grassroots level is critical to maintaining safe environments that foster healthy competition across all levels of sport. Addressing misconduct issues is a team effort – by working together with National Governing Bodies such as U.S. Figure Skating, we can ensure that sport continues to provide a multitude of benefits to athletes of all ages.”
