What a year!
It's finally time to compete! We hope you are as happy as we are to return to the La Jolla Open Championships.
In 2021, we're keeping it small, local, and socially distanced. To shorten our officials’ days wearing masks, we won't select Special Award winners this year.
We may have taken a break, but our skaters' drive is stronger than ever. Registration filled up in just over three days, even though we limited entries to four counties!
This year, U.S. Figure Skating celebrates its Centennial! A big thank you to the officials and judges who volunteer at our competition, part of a team of experts that serve the sport across the country. Your efforts reward skaters at all levels and give young athletes a path to work their way to the top.
We want to recognize chief registrar Carylyn Landt, event chair Idoia Subinas, and Safesport chair Susan McCasland, who have put in a prodigious amount of effort. Our board, junior board, and volunteers have also really stepped up to the challenge of providing extra help.
D.A. Davidson Wealth Management, Augustine Design Group, Cynthia Slawter Photography and Hurd Video Productions have each made generous donations. Thank you for supporting figure skating in Southern California.
Finally, we salute Joe and Irina Polonsky and UTC Skating School director Heather Cristobal, who make UTC Ice a wonderful rink to call home.
To our competitors:
Best of luck!
Skate well, have fun, and join us again in 2022!
President, La Jolla FSC Board of Governors
