    It was posted at FSU last night that Yasmin Siraj won the Senior Ladies SP, scoring 56.00 (her best SP score of the summer, I believe), and that she landed 3T+2T, 3F, 2A.

    I think a mod. mistakenly moved the MidAtlantics club competition thread to the 2011-12 Archives instead of to the 2012 Summer Competitions section. Please move again? TIA! http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/sho...746#post658746

    At the grassroots level, I'd estimate that approximately 85% of the skating population is female.

    A much greater proportion of male skaters get to advance to sectionals and Nationals, and to find partners if they're interested in pairs and dance, so the percentages are closer to even at the higher levels. Especially actually at sectionals and Nationals, because most of the men may have qualified to advance whereas many ladies were left behind at regionals.

    On the other hand, for those men who don't have what it takes to reach a national level, they don't have many peers to compete against regularly at club competitions, so they're less likely to stick around as club-level competitors into late teens and beyond for social reasons.

    A lot of the senior ladies who compete in club competitions will never have the jumps to skate clean legal short programs, but they can still have fun training and competing against each other. Young men with few/inconsistent triples have less of that kind of incentive to stick around, if even finding a club competition with at least one other guy to compete against means traveling hundreds of miles.
