Of course every parent knows the answer is, “Whatever it takes!” But what if their passion is competitive figure skating and the “whatever it takes” is more than you have? When most people think about ice skating, they think of that Saturday afternoon in November or December when everyone bundles up and heads to the local ice rink for a couple hours of stumbling around or holding hands with that special friend and swaying with the music as you try not to fall, followed up by a nice cup of hot chocolate.
If your child is one of the few that finds balancing on a thin slice of metal comfortable and exciting and you see them zipping around the middle of the rink instead of hugging the wall, you had better plan for a life changing experience. Group lessons lead to individual lessons and custom skates, costumes and choreographed programs, traveling to cities you never really thought about visiting and before you know it you start scheduling your time off and vacations around the USFSA competition schedule and asking for a little help from friends and family when your child has dreams you simply cannot afford.
Levon has qualified (with his partner) for the 2018 US Figure Skating National Championships in San Jose, CA. in the Juvenile Pairs event. They will be one of only 12 Juvenile pairs in the country to compete on December 29th. I’m humbled and extremely emotional as his Dad and I reach out (once again) for help with the cost of getting him there. All money raised will be used to offset travel expenses and coaching fees related to the competition and please know that a “Good luck, Levon” will be appreciated just the same as any dollar amount given. http://www.skatesanjose2018.com/
