The Skating Programs Committee is hosting the “Black Boots Seminar” (BBS).

The purpose of the seminar is to bring male figure skaters together for increased appreciation for the sport and to understand the advantages associated participation. A positive and enthusiastic atmosphere by our instructors will encourage male skaters to continue advancing to higher levels of figure skating. Our goal is that seminar participants realize that they are not alone, but part of a group of male athletes working towards common goals in the sport. They will also gain more technical knowledge to help with their progress.
