2018-2019 Parent Education Seminar Series – I

THE IMPORTANCE OF EFFECTIVE PARENT-COACH RELATIONSHIP AND COMMUNICATION
IN SUPPORT OF THE SKATER’S GOALS

The most effective coaching relationships are based on mutual trust, respect and understanding of the skater’s goals. Once you have selected a private coach for your child or are thinking about it, what are the steps you can take as a parent to make sure that the relationship with the professional coach or team of coaches will be as effective and supportive as possible? What are some pitfalls to avoid?

Come join us to discuss this crucial aspect of your skater’s development with an opportunity to ask questions and meet some of our experienced skating parents and PFSC coaches!

When: Saturday, December 1, 2018, 10:00-11:00am

Where: Pasadena Ice Skating Rink, Front Patio

Breakfast and Refreshments available.

The full flier is available here

PFSC Junior Board’s Mini Silent Auction – June 23rd


On Saturday, June 23rd during club-ice, there will be a mini silent auction from 8:30 a.m. – 10:15 a.m., to benefit the PFSC Jr. Board. Please be sure to peruse all the wonderful silent auction items that we have received from our community partners, PFSC and members (PFSC Jr. Board 6-23 Mini Silent Auction Items). Successful bidders need not be present to win but the lucky bidders will be confirmed by 10:30 a.m. and contacted the same day to arrange payment and delivery of the silent auction item.

If you cannot attend, no problem, please inform me of what item(s) # 1-8 you are interested in as well as your maximum bid, and I will bid on your behalf. For example, if you are interested in #3, Artistic Exploration for Two! (2 tickets to the Huntington Museum and a $50 CPK gift card valued at $100) and your maximum bid is $40; I would place the starting bid in your name and if no one else bids, the item is yours for the starting bid of $25. If, however, one or more members out bid you by the $5 increments, I would bid on your behalf until your max bid of $40 has been met.

Please alert me of your online bids either via email laura.davidson@pasadenafsc.com or text, at (213) 926-4665. I will check my emails up until 7:30 a.m. this Saturday. After that please let me know your updated bid and/or new bids by text by 10:00 a.m. and I will do my best to apprise you of the ongoing bidding.

Cash, check and credit card payments will be accepted and can be made either in person and/or online. If you have any questions, please contact me at laura.davidson@pasadenafsc.com or (213) 926-4665.

Thanks for your anticipated support of the PFSC Junior Board!
