Ice dance, freestyle, and synchro skating are each thrilling in their own way. Being able to compete in all three has really diversified my experience as a skater. In all the years I've been skating, the Ann Arbor Figure Skating Club has given me experiences and opportunities that I can't get anywhere else. 
Learn more about the Ann Arbor FSC Competitor of the Year Award
The Competitor of the Year Award is presented annually to Ann Arbor Figure Skating Club (AAFSC) skater or skaters that have represented the AAFSC in competitions during the past year (March, 2019 – February, 2020). The winner of the award is calculated on a point system that assigns points for each competition, event entered, level, placement, and competition ranking in a skating discipline. For example, more points are given to qualifying competitions (Regional, Sectional, National) than for non-qualifying competitions, more points for Senior level than Juvenile, etc. The AAFSC skater(s) with the most points is the recipient of the Competitor of the Year Award. It may not be "won" more than once by same skater(s). We're very proud of all our athletes who represent the Ann Arbor Figure Skating Club in competition, but would greatly like to show appreciation to our Competitor of the Year Winner, Selina Lin!!

Amelia Brogley
Double Axel Award Winner
"I love skating because it allows you to always keep pushing yourself. The double axel is a very difficult jump to learn and it took a lot of falls, mistakes, and help from my amazing coaches before I was able to land it. It is now one of my favorite jumps and proudest accomplishments."
Alyssa McKay
First Axel Award Winner
"I love the feeling of jumping and spinning on a super thin piece of metal. Even though I felt like my axel took a long time to get,  I don't think I would have gotten it if it weren't from the support I got from my friends and coaches at skating."

Marie Sherry
What do I love about adult skating? First and foremost, the supportive, crazy, wonderful people that I have met over the years. I love that my skating has grown as I age – from freestyle and pairs to dance and synchro, I've had the chance to do them all. I love being part of this club, with its rich history and incredible support for adult skaters.
Learn more about the Ann Arbor FSC Adult Achievement Award
Every year the Ann Arbor Figure Skating Club (AAFSC) awards special recognition to an adult member who is an active skater, has represented the AAFSC in competitions, and is a full participant in the life of the Ann Arbor FSC. Our adult program has grown tremendously and, in addition to offering an Annual Adults Skate Too Exhibition, this year the club successfully hosted its first Adult Open Competition. We're proud to offer so many opportunities to our adult skaters, but would greatly like to show appreciation to our Adult Achievement Award recipient, Marie Sherry!!

Sarah Tuzinowski
"Good sportsmanship to me means teamwork, including others, hard work, and perseverance. I try to incorporate sportsmanship in my skating by being positive and encouraging to everyone. On my synchro team, I try work hard and include everyone so we can be at our best potential. I work hard to respect my coaches, teammates and our competitors."
Learn more about the Julia Segall-Derfler Sportsmanship Award
At the age of 24 on November 19, 2007, we lost a special friend and Ann Arbor Figure Skating Club (AAFSC) member when Julia Segall-Derfler tragically died of a sudden illness. She was a tenacious, eager freestyle competitor in her younger days. She had a zest for life, a sparkle in her eye that made you know she knew what she wanted, and the determination to go out and get it!  She rightfully earned one of the first sportsmanship awards given at our annual AAFSC Banquet and because of that, we honor her memory by putting her name with this prestigious award. She inspired the hearts of many as she embraced people as they were and celebrated their differences.  A vibrant young woman, Julia truly knew the meaning of sportsmanship, but more importantly she lived it every day... we are thrilled to keep her memory alive with this award.
