Interesting read on Ice Skating International website regarding National Showcase.

I found a section of the article particularly inspiring as officials at LA Figure Skating Club recognized that there is more to skating than just the elite category and that a club is there for all of it's membership.

Thanks for posting. :)

Definitely there is more to skating than the elite competitions. It is wonderful to see Showcase competitions providing more opportunities for skaters in all categories to express themselves on the ice. While technical prowess in every aspect of skating is important, fs has always been about more than just the jumps and jump revolutions. I think creativity and artistic expression is the lifeblood of figure skating.
