Ganicheva & Letov are named the SC of Boston's high performance directors for the club's new facility in Norwood, Mass.

As announced in the article on pages 8-11 of the club's Summer 2020 newsletter: https://scboston.org/chips/summer2020/?page=10

The 10 skaters pictured in the team photo on page 10, left to right, are: Tamnhi Huynh, Alex Krasnozhon, Ganicheva, Audrey Lu, Letov, Hanna Harrell, Jimmy Ma, Emily Chan, Emilie Mao & Ashley Lin, with Lu’s pairs partner, Misha Mitrofanov, and Chan’s pairs partner, Spencer Howe, in back. (I assume this entire group of skaters will be relocating from Dallas to Boston with their coaches ETA but this has not yet been officially confirmed by them.)

I couldn't help but wonder how the Cains are thinking about the defection of certain skaters. Sylvia, were Ganicheva and Letov at their rink in Texas?

It wasn't the same rink as far as I know. But both Dallas area. Cain-Gribble/Leduc list their training location as Euless, and Krasnozhon had his as Plano (about 30 minutes apart) on the ISU bios.

Thanks for the clarification! That new SCOB facility is gorgeous. I remember going to the old facility starting in 1998 and those wooden bleachers were problematic then. I saw Ross Miner when he was about 7 or 8 at the Boston Open and he was an adorable blond tyke. But many of their events were magical

I skated at the old Boston Skating Club every Sunday night all through HS and College. It was our mall in the 1950's. I have fond memories of that old building.

No, it wasn't the same rink, but they were owned by the same overlords if that makes sense. This will definitely do a number to the Plano rink though (and the Dallas FSC) if all those skaters follow them.

I will miss the SC of Boston's old rink in Allston, too* When I lived and worked nearby, it had convenient evening hours for adult ice.

The new facility looks amazing. A true training center with lots of space.

*Despite the sometimes insane traffic to get there.

It works out great that the Mitchell-Johansson group is in Revere, North of the City, while the SCoB is in Norwood, south of Boston. I will miss the Allston location. Does anyone know if this will remain open or turned into condos like everything else in that neighborhood? The new facility will attract top coaches. I am wondering who's next.

"Take a look back at last week's private ceremony where 2020 U.S. Junior Champion, Maxim Naumov, took to the ice as the first skater in the Club's best-in-class facility in Norwood, MA." (almost 7-min. video) https://www.instagram.com/tv/CFNJstFjCro/

ETA that I just posted a new Maxim Naumov article in the U.S. Men's thread: https://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/th...eason-news-updates.107352/page-2#post-5861058
