On behalf of our all our club members, I wish to express the sentiment that we are all very proud of the achievements of the team of young skaters from our Club who made the trip to St. Paul for the 2016 U.S. National Championships and who are coming home with TWO National Championships, ONE Silver medal, and TWO Pewter medals. In point of fact, all our team members skated great and had really fine efforts! Go Team LAFSC.

Another fortunate aspect that is quite apparent to us all, is that they are all great kids and it’s such a pleasure to see them develop as athletes and more importantly good people who understand the importance of hard work and giving your best effort. Bravo to you all!

We are very pleased and proud to announce our newest National Champion – Eric Sjoberg. Today, Eric became the 2016 U.S. Figure Skating Novice Mens Champion. Eric skated two excellent and breathtaking programs to capture his title. In fact, Eric finished the competition 20 points ahead of the Silver Medalist in the event. How is that for a definitive performance?

Your club mates at the Los Angeles Figure Skating Club salute you on your momentous achievement Eric!

GO ERIC!

At today’s events, we also had two medalists in the Novice Pairs event! Isabella Gamez, with partner Griffin Schwab (SCNY), is the 2016 Silver Medalist in Novice Pairs. This is their first year together. Yay Isabella! Also, Robert Hennings, with partner Emma Coppess (AYFSC) (who have just recently teamed up as well) earned the Pewter Medal! Excellent job Robert! Congratulations to you both!

Showing some bling!
