Under the direction and guidance of head coach, Johanna Kelly Coggeshall, the Club quickly developed a very strong competitive skating program. In 1979, club member Wendy Lee Weston (Enzmann) became the New England Intermediate Ladies Silver Medalist and Eastern Intermediate Ladies Champion, the first of her three Eastern United States Champion titles. Wendy went on to become the Yarmouth Ice Club’s first National and International competitor. The club continued to produce competitive skaters through the club’s nearly forty near history.
In the early 1990’s, Olympic coaches Evy and Mary Scotvold, moved to their training center to the home of the Yarmouth Ice Club at the Tony Kent Arena. In 2003, former World and Olympian Konstantin Kostin joined our coaching staff and continued the growth and development of skaters, bringing them to new levels of excellence in the competitive skating world. By the mid 2000’s many young and talented coaches joined the coaching staff of the Yarmouth Ice Club. Former competitive skaters returned to the rink after obtaining college degrees to pass along their love of skating to the next generation. The small group of coaches produced regional, sectional and national competitors through the early 2000’s.
Community Commitment and Skaters Fund
In the continued commitment to be active in the growth and development of figure skating, the Yarmouth Ice Club was a founding member of the Massachusetts Inter Club Council and the New England Inter Club Council and is proud to have had many YIC members hold offices in both of these organizations. We are also the home club for many members of several USFS National committees and numerous skating judges.
The Skaters Fund
Upon Phoebe Weston’s sudden passing, the Weston family established the Yarmouth Ice Club Skaters Fund. Since its inception in 2005, the Skaters Fund has provided more than $15,000 in financial aid.
