We are very proud, and very excited to announce that Ava Villacorta as our Skater Of The Month! Ava Villacorta is a 9 year old figure skater who has been skating for 5 years. Ava began her skating career at Yorba Linda ICE in our “Learn To Skate” program. She was only 4 years old when she stepped on the ice for the first time in our ”Tot 1” class. Ava is now in our “Axel/Double Jump” class----a true testament to what hard work and a great attitude will do! Ava practices 6 days a week, skates before school, and is very committed! She has big goals and loves to compete. Ava has already competed in 8 competitions this season and will be at her first “Regionals” next month! Ava is coached by Miss Grace Orpiano who said “Ava is such a hard worker and a joy to work with --- even at 5;45am! “ Ava and Miss Grace are a great team and we wish them luck at Regionals- -Yorba Linda ICE is behind you both 100%!
