Skater of the Month
Mckaylin's skating journey started in the summer of 2011 when she had a fun day at the rink with her siblings and some friends. That day sparked her interest in ice skating, so in 2012, at the age of 5, she started taking group lessons at Westminster ICE. In 2014, she joined the All Year Figure Skating Club, and she competed in her very first USFS competition where she found her love of competing and performing in front of an audience, and she realized the fun of meeting new friends during competitions. In August 2015, she competed in the Silicon Valley Open and was awarded the Kayla Dopp Memorial Award - Outstanding Pre-Preliminary Freeskate. In 2016, she was the Southern California Interclub Invitational Series Final Preliminary champion, and this year, she is the SoCal Interclub Final Pre-Juvenile champion and 2018 Skate Southwest Pacific Regional Pre-Juvenile Group A winner.
Mckaylin is thankful for her coaches, Dianne DeLeeuw and Doug Chapman, for guiding her in her skating journey and her friends, family, siblings, and parents for supporting her in her sport.
Youth Player of the Month
Jimmy is 10 years old and loves being on the ice playing hockey for the Jr. Ducks. He has many interests and hobbies such as collecting cards (hockey, baseball, YuGiOh, & Pokémon) blacksmithing, parkour, and chess. He always appreciates a good riddle and spending time with his parakeet, Slapshot. He will jump at the opportunity to volunteer at the Learn-to-skates to teach other little kids how to play hockey.
Thank you, Jimmy, for being such a great example on and off the ice!
