Peninsula Skating Club Buddy Program

Sept 1, 2021

Hello Junior Board members!

Hope your new school year is going well!

To start the new season, we are collaborating with PSC and starting a Buddy Program to connect PSC skaters and make everyone feel like more of a community. We hope this program will promote friendship, support social needs, and foster a greater sense of belonging. It welcomes new and younger members and reaffirms their decision to join PSC while giving them the support in knowing that they have someone they can confidently turn to for support. This program will hopefully create friendships that enable both older and younger skaters to bond more closely with their club. The older skaters learn responsibility, leadership and communication skills, and benefit from all those wonderful feelings from helping others and being involved. Buddy systems can have numerous benefits such as promoting an inclusive environment for all, better acceptance of differences, encourage interaction with peers, and even personal growth.


We are currently looking for big buddies from Junior Board to mentor and support little ones in their skating journey. Big buddies will connect with little buddies through interactive activities, examples include gift exchange, regular check in at least twice a month, attend little buddies' test sessions or competitions, meet ups. 


If you are interested, please fill out the sign up form by 9/19 and we will pair you with a little buddy.


Thanks for your consideration!

Your Junior Board officers

Petition to Save Redwood City Ice Rink

Oct 18, 2020

Hello everyone!

We want to thank all the skaters and their families who have signed the petition letter to save the Redwood City Ice Rink. As many of you may or may not know, the Redwood City ice rink is closing, and we need your help to get the rink back. 

For our October project, we have decided to support the rink by sending out a letter from the Junior Board. 


Please read the letter attached below, and let us know if you agree with the letter. It would be very helpful if everyone could support this, as we will include your name in the petition letter. 


Thank you very much!

-The Junior Board Officers

PS: Junior Board's petition letter


Skating is a very important part of our lives, as it is a huge passion for many of us. Just as how everyone has their own dreams and paths in life, we have many dreams of succeeding and achieving our goals in this sport, and the ice is what brings us back together as one. It is a wonderful place full of memories that a countless number of people make each day. From kids who practice in the morning and afternoon, before and after school, there are also many passionate adult skaters who practice very often as well. Not only is a skating rink a place for us figure skaters or hockey players, it is also a very important place for the community. People with busy work schedules may come during a night session to enjoy doing what they love, and relieve their stress to prepare for another busy day. There are children who watch skaters on television, and get inspired to take their first step on the ice, later realizing their dream of becoming a figure skater. Very often, people celebrate their birthdays at ice rinks. Many skaters tell their story about how they made a visit to their local ice rink for the very first time after being invited to a friend’s birthday party, and instantly fell in love with skating. If the rink closes, the door for everyone finding their first joy in this sport will close as well. None of these dreams will come true because there won’t be a chance, and things will never be the same. Closing this rink will become a big problem for the whole community because all opportunities will be gone, and the future will be unpredictable. Please help us get the rink back.

Club Zoom Meeting with JASON BROWN

August 23, 2020


We had our first club “Community” zoom meeting and meet guest speaker, Jason Brown! He is a seven-time medalist on the Grand Prix circuit, the 2015 U.S. national champion, and a two-time Four Continents medalist, to name a few accolades.


Staying connected and feeling like a community is the mission of Peninsula Skating Club. Let’s support each other and have some fun! Everyone from the 2019-2020 and current season is invited. If you were a member last year but not this year, we’d still love to have you join us!



1. Introduction by president, Rick Perez

2. Jason Brown speaks and answers questions

3. The Junior Board presents three exciting projects

4. Rick Perez discusses the current season.


Junior Board did a fabulous job to help moderate the meeting and to present our exciting projects; the sharing of Shelter-In-Place reflection especially impressed all the audiences. 



Shelter In Place Reflection

July 15, 2020

​Dear Junior Board members:

We are super excited that the rinks in the Bay Area have reopened. Were you able to get a spot? How did it feel to be on ice again? Can you still do your jumps and spins? 


The Junior Board would like to do an online reflection of skaters' lives during SIP. We want to hear your stories of SIP, whether it's about off-ice training, or any new hobby you developed, or a virtual party you had, or anyone you have helped during SIP, and most importantly, how you felt during SIP. Were you incredibly bothered by the physical isolation? Or the despair of not being able to frequently leave your house? Or did you instead feel peaceful and comfortable in the safety of home?


We are also curious to hear: how do you feel of being able to reunite perhaps in person with your beloved coaches? How do you feel being able to get back on the ice which you have been separated from for months now? To be able to come back after perhaps the longest time you’ve ever spent away from the sport?


Please send your stories, photos, or video clips to before Aug 15th. There is no word count limit. This is one of the most unique experiences we have ever had, so please use this opportunity to record your reflections and thoughts! We will publish your stories on JB's website and Instagram to share with skaters all around the world. You will also earn points for your submissions.


Stay safe and healthy! Have a great summer!

Junior Board Directors Met with PSC Board Member Linda Price

December 15, 2019

Junior Board Directors met with PSC Board Member Ms. Linda Price. We made plans to grow PSC membership base and support our members, especially new members and high school skaters. 




2019 Fremont Christmas Show

December 07, 2019


Junior Board members performed beautifully in the annual Fremont Christmas Show. Nicole and her team even choreographed their own program. 

Over thanksgiving break, some Fremont skater and I got together and had an idea to create a group number to perform at the Fremont Christmas Show. So we organized it with whoever could make it and started choreographing the program. Some skaters who couldn’t make it to the show helped out too. The choreographer of the group number was Isabelle, myself, Minseo, and Rainbow. It was a great experience for me as being the manger of the group because it showed me how to be a leader, how to contact others to schedule things, and leadership skills that I can use in the future. Many of the skaters learned the choreography from videos that we sent from every practice because not everyone could make it to each one. Since all the students in the group take from Ryan and Sherri, we decided for the group name to be Sherri and Ryan’s Ice Angels. The performers in Sherri and Ryan’s Ice Angels were Isabelle, Ethan, Angela, Rainbow, Nicole, and Da-ni. We skated to All I Want For Christmas is You by Fifth Harmony because it is a really fun and upbeat song. It is also a Classic Christmas song that everyone knows and loves. It was super fun to create a group program for the Christmas Show and I hope more skaters next year can join us.

Canopy Tree Care

March 23, 2019


Spring is coming, trees are growing, flowers are blooming. It's the right time to beautify our environment and enjoy the nature. It’s proven science: a walk in the woods or even strolling down a tree-lined street does wonders for your mind and your mood.


Hence we have setup this great volunteer opportunity for you to join Canopy's Cubberley Tree Care Work Day. This is a collaborative activity with City of Palo Alto and the Kiwanis Club to beautify the community center campus! Over the last few years Canopy volunteers planted 100 TREES and over 100 landscape plants! In order to keep this landscape thriving we need to add more mulch, rebuild water basins, remove weeds, and pick up trash around the trees.


Date: Saturday, March 23, 2019

Time: 9:00 am to 12:00 pm

Location: Cubberley Community Center, 4000 Middlefield Rd, Palo Alto, CA 94303, USA



National Get Up Day 2019

February 01, 2019

Get Up Day is a day where figure skaters from across the nation share their stories of perseverance and how they got up after a fall! In honor of Get Up Day, our Junior Board Members shared their own stories and thoughts about how they overcame setbacks.

"One time I have had to “get up” during my figure skating career is when I sprained my ankle while doing a jump on ice. At first, I thought that it was no big deal but as time went by, my parents and I found out that it was no minor injury. It took eight weeks for me to recover and be able to get back onto the ice. It was especially hard for me when I was injured because not only was I not able to skate, but I had to go to the rink and a competition that I was supposed to participate in for my little sister. This injury has helped me how much I love figure skating and gave me the courage to move on and not keep dragging negative thoughts with me throughout my life. Next time whenever something like this happens again, I now have the bravery to overcome any obstacles I might face in the future." -Sawaka Yanagi

"Everyday I am able to do something that I love and have a Passion for, Figure Skating. Being a Figure Skater I've learned many important life lessons. For example it has has taught me to overcome any barriers or things that set me back, learn from them, and persevere. One day when I was skating, about 2 years ago, my knee started swelling, eventually making it hard to jump, spin, or even skate on it. I didn't want the pain in my knee to stop me, so I kept skating, and even competing. Eventually I learned that I tore my Meniscus in my knee and in turn this injury kept me off the ice for about a year. This was the first major injury I had in my Skating career, and I was crushed since I wasn't able to skate during this time. Having been off the ice for about a year because of this injury, it taught to always listen to my body, if i'm in pain, do something about it. This also motivated me to 'Get Up' and learn how to get stronger so nothing like this will happen again. Not being able to do something I love, for a year, was something that I had to learn to overcome and push through." -Emily Clinkscales

"Two years ago, I injured my back right before Regionals. Because I had to take time off the ice to rest, I was very disappointed with my performance and felt like my whole season of hard work had been pointless. Overcoming this setback was difficult, but it taught me the importance of never giving up." -Elizabeth Ding

"Tell yourself that you can do better next time and there are many opportunities ahead of you. Your can't just quit because you did bad on one competition, you have to persevere and get over it to become a better skater." -Megan Zhu

Let's continue celebrating courage and perseverance!

Thanksgiving Volunteer Event

December 08, 2018


We had an amazing time on Thanksgiving volunteering at the Sunnyvale Presbyterian Church by serving dinner to those who might not have had a house or the means to celebrate the holiday in. We diligently worked as either servers, helping serve dishes ranging from turkey and stuffing to mashed potatoes and gravy, or hostesses, helping pour refreshments and serve pie. It was such a great experience to serve nearly four hundred people, and it made us appreciate things we have in our lives that we barely acknowledge.  


Our members provided some great statements on their thoughts after the event:

"I really enjoyed serving the people that came to dinner. Many people were citizens that did not have enough money to support themselves for food, and took several boxes of food to last them. This made me realize how unfortunate some citizens are in the world, and that we must be grateful for what we are given/take for granted every day. " - Erica Machida

"I had a great experience volunteering with everyone on the junior board! It was so nice to give food to people who were in need, and see the happiness and smiles on their faces." - Mayu Tayama

"It was super fun to give back to the community, and being with my friends made it even more special." - Nicole


We were so glad that we helped out on Thanksgiving and we look forward to more events in the future. Check out photos from the event under our Gallery section!

Thank you and happy holidays!

2017 Season Informational Meeting

February 13, 2017


Thank you to everyone who attended our informational meeting regarding the 2017 PSC Junior Board Season! 


During this meeting we talked about some of the new changes we made based on our member feedback. The first and foremost change we made is that we will now welcome any participants from ages 10-18! We will also be sending out emails to both skaters AND parents instead of just to skaters. Another big change we made is that our volunteer events will be every so often instead of every single month. However, we will be holding more social events, such as a thanksgiving feast and secret santa, so our 2017 season will be a lot of fun! :) We will also be hosting small contests and accepting frequent member feedback every so often.


We currently have two leadership positions open: the Project Chair and Public Relations! The Project Chair will find volunteer events and coordinate socials. The Public Relations will manage our website, Instagram, and emailing information. If you are interested in being our Project Chair or Public Relations, please fill out our form (listed under the "files" tab). You must be 13 years old by March 1st to apply for an officer position. The form is due by Sunday, February 19th 11:59pm


Please tell your friends to join Junior Board, as the schedule is very flexible, and we will have LOTS of fun this year! The sign up forms are located under the "files" tab, and are due by Sunday, February 19th 11:59pm.



Thank you!

Welcome Potluck Social

April 16, 2016

Today was such a delightful day! Our Jr Board family gathered at the absolutely beautiful Cuesta park to enjoy a nice potluck social. The weather was perfect and the environment was perfect.


Many of us had lots of fun, blowing up and popping balloons, eating some delicious food, demolishing the cake just with our utensils, playing many games, etc. I would say that this event was a success! 


Everyone had beautiful smiles on their faces and it sure seemed like we were having a fun and relaxed time under the 80 degree weather! I hope this event has loosened up our tired bodies from all the skating and training we have to go through. :)


Thank you all for coming!

Our City Forest

March 12, 2016

Our VERY first volunteer event was a blast!


We helped out "Our City Forest", a non-profit organization, at the El Quito Neighborhood in Saratoga by planting trees!


It was a day full of digging and shoveling the rooted dirt. Who knew planting 2 trees would be so exhuasting? 


Shout out to Elizabeth Ding, Ysabel Li, Cherie Zhi, Nicole Zhi, Samantha Ramsey, Jen Huang, Ivette Lipets, Miranda Rojas, and Flora Peng for coming to help the community! Now you guys know how to plant trees ;) 


Thank you everybody!
