We are pleased to announce that U.S. Figure Skating has chosen The Skating Club of Boston to be host of next season’s 2019 New England Regional Championships. This will be the Club’s 10th time hosting this important qualifying event, not including the 11 times it hosted New Englands as a non-qualifying event between 1943 – 1959. Significantly, Club Chairman and Historian, Benjamin T. Wright, was the event’s first chief referee in 1943.
The dates of the 2019 event are tentatively scheduled for October 10-14, 2018, with the primary venue at 1240 Soldiers Field Road. A secondary venue will be announced at a future date.
Ronellen and Eric Gagnon have volunteered to be the event’s chairpersons, and are actively looking for volunteers to lead the various committees. If you are interested in getting involved and helping to make this competition the best it can be, please contact them at 2019RegionalsLOC@scboston.org. These events are traditionally a lot of fun to work on, and an opportunity to meet skaters and coaches from all over New England. We encourage everyone to get involved!
More information about the event will be forthcoming as further details are arranged.
