As the reconfigured 2020-21 season continues, the Novice athletes and all levels of Dance have completed their virtual event during February. Here is an update of that activity.
Congratulations to All Year FSC members who participated in the Novice level events of the 2021 U.S. Figure Skating Championship Series Presented by Toyota, which was held as a virtual event!
See the list, below, for skaters placements and those who have currently qualified for the 2021 National High Performance Development Team.
We also want to wish the very best of luck to all our members who are submitting their audition video during the month of March. As the auditions for Juvenile and Intermediate singles and pairs are completed, and more skaters are added to the National High Performance Development Team, we will update those home club members on our website.
Congratulations to those whom have already participated in this season’s events and best of luck to those in the process of submitting video.
Your figure skating community and family at All Year Figure Skating Club. We are very proud of each of you.
In Honor and In Memory of Morry Stillwell
All Year FSC is saddened by the passing of our dear friend and mentor, Morry Stillwell, on December 25, 2020. All Year FSC sends its deepest condolences to Morry’s wife, Elda, daughter, Lisa, and their family. The skating community, of Southern California, has lost a leader, mentor and friend, who had great passion and drive to always bring the very best out of each skater, official and club member.
All Year FSC will be forever grateful to Morry’s years of service, as a past member of All Year FSC, and most especially for being one of the founding members of our flagship competition, Golden West Championships. Recently, he was instrumental in the creation of our own showcase event, The Curtain Call. Morry’s vision and passion brought significant changes to figure skating, as he was a catalyst in the creation of so many events that our club and the skating community enjoy annually. We can only hope, that as a skating club, we can carry this torch into the future. Without a doubt, Morry’s presence and guidance will be missed.

Dear Skating Community,
We were very sorry that we had to cancel Golden West as a competition this season. However, we are making an effort to provide you with some critiques and feedback on your programs.
We have a very short entry window for skaters to sign up for a “virtual performance“. Skaters will be provided an opportunity to upload a video of their performance. We will then have a tech panel and judges assigned to provide skaters with their protocol and an opportunity for a virtual critique with a couple of members of the Officials panel.
Additionally, we have a bit of ice time available on Saturday and Sunday (Dec. 12 & 13) where we will have on-ice/in-person evaluations. Since ice time is limited, we are limiting the in-person opportunity to Novice through Senior Singles and Pairs. We will have a tech panel and judges in attendance providing an evaluation and protocol for you.
The entry portal, on Entryeeze, was opened today, December 4. It will be open until Dec.10. We hope that you are all staying safe and healthy and we are trying our best to provide you with an opportunity to track your progress and get some feedback on your performance.
Thank you and wishing you all a Safe, Healthy and Happy Holiday.
All Year FSC Board of Directors
