Mariah began skating in the fall of 2009 she was 8 years old ; her first two seasons as a Bowie ISI Figure skater she skated on the Production Team( a play on ice) and as an individual skater. Her third season with the team she decided she wanted to join the Syncro Team (Synchronized skating) ( which requires a much higher skill set), Mariah at this time was skating on the Production & Syncro teams as well as training with her Private coach for individual events; it was at this time that she showed interest in USFS training. Mariah has competed in over a Dozen Figure skating competitions including Districts in Delaware & Nationals in Florida where she competed against 548 skaters and 27 teams; her medal case displays a beautiful Array of gold, silver & bronze medals. Last season Mariah was on ice six days a week totaling 15 hours she took the following classes: ballet, ice dancing, jump & spin, moves in the fields, power classes, USFS private lessons, ISI Private lessons, advanced private lessons from Rory Flack (ranked in the top 5 African American figure skaters in the nation) as well as weekly Production & Syncro Team practice. On an average Skaters advance 1 maybe two levels per season overall with Mariah’s hard work and dedication Mariah has advanced 3 levels per season and is considered one of the strongest skaters on her team for her age group! Mariah has successfully test & passed the following levels:
Alpha, Alpha 2, Beta, Beta 2, Gamma, Gamma 2, Delta, Delta 2, Freestyle 1, Freestyle 2 & Freestyle 3
Currently Mariah is a Freestyle 4 skater to give an idea where she is she will begin working on her axel in Freestyle 5 and freestyle goes up to 10

Mariah’s passion & dedication for Figure Skating earned her an invitation to compete at The International Skating Institutes Worlds 2013 Championships in Thailand To compete at this level was a dream come true for Mariah. However with airfare, hotel, competition & coaching fees it would have cost us around $7,000 for the two of us to attend and her to compete. We will try again next year!
P.S. As a proud mom I would like to add Mariah has done all of the above while consistently maintaining “Honor roll” for 21 quarters straight. And graduated from the 6th grade with Honors receiving The Presidential Academic Achievement Award.
