On a Saturday morning, Singapore skaters gathered at the Orchid Country club, at an event hosted by the Singapore Ice Skating Association (SISA). We started with a welcome address by SISA president Sonja Chong, after which SISA vice president Kaori Zage gave an overview of the SkateStar program. She also unveiled the new SISA logo, which was selected from entries submitted during the logo contest last year. The winning logo was designed by figure skater Genevieve Har!
The draw for the upcoming Singapore National Figure Skating Competition was held next, where skaters from the various event categories came up to draw their skating order.
During the luncheon that followed, SISA exco had a question-and-answer session with the skaters and parents. There was interest in the new Olympic ice rink in JCube, as well as in the new SkateStar program. The rink will begin operation in April and SISA is working on obtaining freestyle ice time, though schedules are not fixed yet. The skating community is looking forward to having a safe and friendly environment to train in!
