PROVIDENCE, RI – Skate for Joy (SFJ) will be holding a registration for the 2013/2014 season on Monday, December 2, 2013 at the Providence rink at the Bank of America City Center. Our volunteers will be eagerly awaiting to sign up your children in the skate rental room from 4:00 – 6:00 PM. Look for the bright red sweatshirts. The registration fee is $25.00.
Now in it’s twelfth season of providing this unique opportunity to disadvantaged youth, founder and executive director, Carolyn Drumm, said “We look forward to another great season, thanks to our many community partners who make this possible.” She added, “After dedicating significant time and energy to the SFJ program, this year we hope to transfer the program into capable hands who can continue the wonderful success of this non-profit.”
Skate for Joy is a non-profit organization committed to helping children discover the joy of ice skating. It is our goal to engage under-served youth from all backgrounds in a high quality, after-school US Figure Skating Basic Skills program and inspire them, regardless of race or creed. The program will consistently provide mentoring that will foster skills in goal-setting and teach the importance of physical fitness and respecting themselves and others. By providing a fun, yet structured and disciplined environment that will help each child build self-esteem, they will mature into confident individuals striving to succeed on ice and beyond.
