Club Members,

Skating Director Riley and I are pleased to announce the following new additions to our team:

Lillian Derynck will serve as the Learn to Skate Coordinator and the Aspire Program Coordinator for the upcoming year. Lily has grown up skating in the Club and did a super job last year as a new SR Coach. Her contagious enthusiasm and perpetual smile will keep our Club growing.

Deb Melstad will be the Sports Engine Administrator. Over the past years, Deb stepped up to learn the complex Sports Engine program that was vital to the growth of our club. Deb has served as a past board member and has been a long time skater parent and volunteer.

Peter Hauck will be the Director of Marketing & Club Communications. Peter has been very successful in his role as the Community Manager for Startup Sioux Falls and will leverage that experience in our branding and advertising campaign. Additionally, Peter is the "voice" of the Club as the announcer at all events and competitions.

Senior Coach Sarah Hanson has been selected to be the Coaches' Representative to the Board of Directors for the upcoming year. Sarah is a long time coach and served as the Club President last year. Her expertise and leadership enabled our Club to see dramatic growth in our 25th Anniversary Year. We look forward to her continued leadership.

This talented group brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and passion for skating that is essential for our continued growth. Together, we look forward to another exciting year for the Sioux Falls Figure Skating Club. Thank you for your continued support!
