 PROJECT EDGE

Encourage Doing Great things Everyday!

ATTENTION COACHES/PARENTS/SKATERS

 
Have you seen a skater go above and beyond to help or encourage another person (on or off the ice)? Do they excel in academics or art? Do they have another special talent? We want to hear about anything AWESOME a skater has done! 
 
Please email us at media@fefsc.org with subject line: Project Edge and the skater's name. Give us a brief description of how the skater has been doing great things.  Skater's will be recognized in the newsletter and in the website news.
 
Project EDGE is a campaign created by Florida Everblades Figure Skating Club to Encourage Doing Great things Everyday in our skaters!

U.S. Figure Skating and the Florida Everblades Figure Skating Club strive to provide a safe environment for its members, one that is free of abuse and harassment. The association will not tolerate or condone any form of harassment or abuse of any of its members including athletes, coaches, officials, directors, employees, parents, volunteers or any other persons while they are participating in or preparing for a figure skating activity or event conducted under the auspices of U.S. Figure Skating. All forms of abuse and harassment are unacceptable and in direct conflict with U.S. Figure Skating rules.       

Our director will monitor the SafeSport policies and procedures of the club; verifying that all of the coaches who are engaged in any type of coaching activity with any club skater are in compliance with the USFS coaching membership rules regarding background checks and continuing education requirements; and serve as the initial contact in the club for persons to report suspected abuse, misconduct or other violations, and when necessary, report such info to USFS. Please contact us with any questions at safesport@fefsc.org.
