This page found at the following link : http://www.2016uschampionships.com/   on the US Figure skating web page

 

The U.S. Figure Skating Championships, held annually since 1914, is the nation’s most prestigious figure skating event, with past winners including Michelle Kwan, Kristi Yamaguchi and Scott Hamilton.

 

In addition to determining the U.S. champions, the event serves as the final step in determining the U.S. teams for the World Figure Skating Championships, World Junior Figure Skating Championships, Four Continents Figure Skating Championships and Olympic Winter Games.

 

The road to the U.S. Championships each year begins with the U.S. Figure Skating qualifying structure of nine regional events and three sectional events. Skaters who place in the top four at a regional qualify for a sectional; skaters who place in the top four at a sectional qualify for the U.S. Championships. Skaters compete in the region and section that correspond with the location of their skating club.

 

Some skaters may receive byes that qualify them automatically for the U.S. Championships, including skaters with an international competition that conflicts with a regional or sectional, senior-level skaters or teams placing in the top five at the previous year’s U.S. Championships, skaters or teams who won a medal at the most recent Olympic Winter Games and skaters or teams who won a medal at the most recent World Championships.

 

Championship Ladies

The ladies competition is a highlight of the U.S. Championships with an impressive list of past champions including Peggy Fleming, Dorothy Hamill, Kristi Yamaguchi, Nancy Kerrigan, Tara Lipinski and Michelle Kwan among the almost 100 year history of the event. This event highlights beauty, grace and style as the nation’s leading female skaters take center ice in Saint Paul. Competed over two separate evenings, the event is comprised of two parts: the short program, which is skated first, and the free skate. Both programs display the elegance and talent synonymous with the sport of figure skating.

 

Championships Ladies Short Program | Session 8 | Thursday, Jan. 21, at 7:30 p.m. The championship ladies short program is the first of two parts of the overall ladies competition. It features each athlete performing the seven required elements. While connecting steps will factor a skater’s components score, the ladies will attempt to maintain their composure as each jump and spin earns placements and points heading into the free skate competition.

 

Championship Ladies Free Skate | Session 14 | Saturday, Jan. 23 at 6 p.m.

The championship ladies free skate will crown the coveted title of U.S. ladies champion, an honor Ashley Wagner hopes to defend after her victory last year. If Wagner succeeds, she will become a four-time U.S. champion. Others to watch: Gracie Gold, Polina Edmunds, Courtney Hicks, Karen Chen, Mirai Nagasu.

 

 

Championship Men

Dick Button, Scott Hamilton, Brian Boitano, Todd Eldredge and Evan Lysacek are just some of the historic names that have been crowned U.S. champion in this event. The history is undeniable and the strength of field makes this one of the toughest events to win annually. Technique, concentration and the ability to perform under pressure are the key requirements to claim victory in the men’s event. As strength is showcased and quadruple jumps are attempted, the men will compete over two days in the short program and a free skate, similar to the ladies competition.

 

Championship Men’s Short Program | Session 11 | Friday, Jan. 22 at 7:30 p.m.

The men’s short program will consist of seven required elements, including two jumps, a jump combination, three spins and one step sequence. The elements may be done in any order within the 2:50 time limit.

 

Championship Men’s Free Skate | Session 15 | Sunday, Jan. 24 at 1 p.m.

In the free skate, reigning U.S. champion Jason Brown, known for his choreography and emotional musicality, will face-off against the likes of Max Aaron, Adam Rippon, Ross Miner, Nathan Chen and Richard Dornbush.

 

 

Championship Pairs

The pairs event combines the athleticism of singles skating with the precision of ice dancing, mixed with the thrilling acrobatics of overhead lifts and throws. Each movement is performed in unison, demonstrating exact timing and line between partners. Similar to singles events, the pairs competition includes a short program and a free skate, each packed with difficult elements and artistry.

 

Championship Pairs Short Program | Session 7 | Thursday, Jan. 21 at 2:45 p.m.

Pairs short programs consist of required elements, which include overhead lifts, side-by-side solo jumps, spins, step sequences and death spirals. In this event, reigning U.S. champions Alexa Scimeca and Chris Knierim will take their first steps toward repeating as titlists.

 

Championship Pairs Free Skate | Sessions 12 & 13 | Saturday, Jan. 23 at 1:30 p.m.

The 2016 U.S. pairs champions will be named following the championship pairs free skate competition. For any skating fans who enjoy the classic movie The Cutting Edge, the pairs event is a must-see! In addition to Scimeca and Knierim, look out for Tarah Kayne and Daniel O’Shea, Madeline Aaron and Max Settlage, Marissa Castelli and Simon Shnapir and Gretchen Donlan and Nathan Bartholomay.

 

 

Championship Ice Dance

If you like “Dancing with the Stars,” the ice dancing event is for you. Unlike pairs skating, ice dancing is based on different aspects of dance, including rhythm, interpretation of the music and precise steps. Its beauty lies in its limitless creativity, choreography and theatrical and innovative aspects. Ice dancing is the only discipline that permits vocal music and costumes are traditionally more elaborate in order to enhance the performance.

 

Championship Short Dance | Session 10 | Friday, Jan. 22 at 2:30 p.m.

The ice dancing competition consists of two segments. The championship short dance will feature elegant performances to waltz, foxtrot, march and polka selections. Each team will display a range of technical ability and sophisticated style as they set the pace for the final round of competition.

 

Championship Free Dance Competition | Sessions 12 & 13 | Saturday, Jan. 23 at 1:30 p.m.

The championship free dance will close out the event to the music of each team’s choice. Innovative choreography will highlight each dramatic performance as reigning U.S. champions Madison Chock and Evan Bates take the ice in pursuit of their second U.S. title. Others to watch: Maia Shibutani and Alex Shibutani, Madison Hubbell and Zachary Donohue, Kaitlin Hawayek and Jean-Luc Baker and Anastasia Cannuscio and Colin McManus.

 

 

Smucker’s Skating Spectacular– Sunday, Jan. 27 at 7 p.m.

The Smucker’s Skating Spectacular will take place at the conclusion of the competition and feature the top four place winners in each of the Championship events, as well as each of the champions from the novice and junior divisions. Skaters will perform creative programs of their own choosing, free from the scrutiny of the judges, with show lighting and costumes. The exhibition is a fun and entertaining event for the whole family celebrating all the newly crowned U.S. champions.

 

 

New Trades for the Steel

Steel Acquire Three in Pair of Tuesday Trades

STEEL ACQUIRE THREE IN PAIR OF TUESDAY TRADES

Bachman and Parsells join team from Green Bay; Gabriele from Omaha

BachmanAndParsellsAndGabriele

GENEVA, ILLINOIS – The Chicago Steel announced Tuesday that they have acquired forward Karch Bachman and defenseman Adam Parsells via trade from the Green Bay Gamblers in exchange for forwards Ryan Blankemeier and Connor Murphy. Additionally, the Steel completed a trade of defensemen with the Omaha Lancers, picking up Grant Gabriele in exchange for Michael Joyaux.

Bachman (5-11, 171), a fifth-round selection of the Florida Panthers in the 2015 NHL Draft, scored 19 goals and added 24 assists in 32 games last season for Culver Military Academy Prep in his home state of Indiana. The speedy left wing is committed to Miami (Ohio) University. Bachman has played in five games this season for Green Bay, tallying one goal and one assist.

Parsells, 18, adds serious size to the Steel blue line. The 6-foot-6, 192 pound defenseman was selected by the San Jose Sharks in the 6th round (160th overall) of the 2015 NHL Draft. Parsells, who is committed to the University of Wisconsin, served as a captain last season for Wausau (Wis.) West High, scoring 7 goals and 15 assists in 23 games. Parsells has one goal in three games this season for the Gamblers.

Prior to joining the Lancers, Gabriele (6-1, 168) spent the past two USHL seasons with Team USA, tallying 12 points (3+9) in 47 games with the National Team Development Program. The 18-year-old defenseman was included on NHL Central Scouting’s Preliminary Players to Watch list last month, giving the Western Michigan University commit a ‘C’ rating for the 2016 NHL Draft. Gabriele has played in six games this season with Omaha, scoring one goal and one assist.

Blankemeier and Murphy join the Gamblers after tallying 31 and 33 points respectively for the Steel in 2014-2015, while Joyaux heads to the Lancers following a 21-point campaign with Chicago last season. Green Bay’s first trip to Fox Valley Ice Arena takes place this Friday, October 16, while Omaha will visit the Steel on April 3. All three players helped the Steel win Bronze at the 2015 Junior Club World Cup in Yekaterinburg, Russia.

Tickets are on sale now for all Steel regular season home games, including this Friday’s 7:30 p.m. contest versus Green Bay. Season ticket plans, starting at just six games, are also available. To purchase tickets, call 855-51-STEEL, visit the box office inside Fox Valley Ice Arena or visit ChicagoSteelHockeyTeam.com.

An interesting new Safety feature forcing players to “look up”

Iceoplex gets hockey players to “look up” with new safety feature

The Iceoplex at Southpointe added a “Look-Up Line” to increase safety for hockey players. A portion of the ice is painted to warn skaters they are approaching the boards. Order a Print

In the game of hockey, injuries resulting from collisions with the boards can be dangerous, and sometimes life-threatening.

The Iceoplex at Southpointe took a step toward reducing injuries and making the game safer with the addition of a Look-Up Line to its ice rink. The Look-Up Line is a 40-inch orange warning track that goes around the rink and helps players know when they are approaching the boards. This way they can “look up” so they don’t crash into them headfirst.

“We haven’t had anything so severe as a spinal injury. … We’re trying to be safe, and we’re trying to be proactive and lead the way in preventing what could happen,” said Mandi Pryor, marketing director at the Iceoplex. The Look-Up Line was created by Thomas Smith, a former hockey player who was involved in two separate collisions with the boards, resulting in severe injuries to his spine. The Look-Up Line has since been installed in hundreds of rinks. The line in the Iceoplex rink is the first one in Western Pennsylvania.

“We hope that more rinks will follow,” Smith said. “There’s no reason every rink in the country shouldn’t have one.”

Smith praised the Iceoplex, saying the decision to paint a Look-Up Line into the ice “speaks volumes” to the leadership and their desire to help protect kids from injury.

The Look-Up Line does not add or change any rules, and Smith says it is not an attempt to make the game “softer.” Instead, he hopes for a “cultural change” that will have players more aware of where they are on the ice and ultimately make them safer. Smith says the line has been working, and coaches at rinks that have it are teaching players about the line and how to be safe.

Smith and his organization, The Thomas E. Smith Foundation, have been involved in making sure the Iceoplex Look-Up Line conforms with their standards. Pryor notes that the Iceoplex stays in contact with the foundation and works with them to be sure it is following their guidelines and specifications. “We don’t want ours to be different from theirs, the next rink and the next rink,” Pryor said. “They want to have it as uniform as possible.” While the line has been installed in rinks where mostly younger people are playing, Smith sees no reason why it shouldn’t be installed at professional level rinks, saying that even NHL players aren’t perfect.

“We think there is value in the Look-Up Line at all levels,” Smith said.

Comment and tell us what you think of this safety feature! Would this be beneficial at all rinks?

Toews talks about the Patrick Kane Situation

Kane and Towes

Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews was recently on TSN 1290 in Winnipeg when the subject of Patrick Kane came up — sort of. Kane was the topic being referenced but neither the interviewer or Toews used his name in this particular exchange.

In the interest of giving what Toews said proper context, here is the full transcription of the question and answer, per the Chicago Tribune’s Chris Kuc:

If you have difficulty reading it in that format, here is it again:

Host: “Jonathan, I do want to ask you one question about being the captain of the Blackhawks. Obviously, most people are aware of a situation that has been developing regarding one of your star teammates. Obviously, I won’t ask you to comment on anything like that but when something like that happens during the offseason does your focus as far as dealing with your teammates as well as the media change going into training camp as the captain of the team?”

Toews: “I think you just have to have confidence that things like that will resolve themselves over time. For the time being, you stay together as a team. You support your teammate … uh, teammate, teammates that are maybe going through a rough patch. You saw it last year with some rumors that spread around through social media about several guys in the locker room. It’s not the first time we’ve seen situations like that and eventually you deal with it internally and you stay together as a team and you’re confidence as individuals and as a group that everyone kind of stays together. At the end of the day we always say to each other that what is said and what is done within the locker room is the only thing that matters. We don’t let anything going on on the outside affect the way we do our jobs and the way we come to work together as a team. Again, I get a lot of credit because I have the ‘C’ on my sweater but I think we have a great group of guys who understand what it takes to be a leader, what it takes to be a part of a good team. Clearly it’s more than just what happens on the ice. There’s always a lot of things being said and things going on off the ice but no matter hwat, we do a good job of sticking together.”

Kane is under police investigation for allegedly raping a woman. He hasn’t been charged with a crime at this time.
