Kelly Rippon, Educator, Author & Speaker

Raise your kids through positive parenting, understanding, and leadership...and be the ultimate influencer in their lives.

How do you raise a champion?

After her son Adam Rippon, medaled in the 2018 Olympic Games, single mom Kelly Rippon found herself being asked this question all the time. Kelly had six children―what did she do to inspire them to their achievements and how did she raise confident, self-driven, emotionally intelligent children?

Kelly realized that her unique parenting ideas shared the same leadership influence model she presented to audiences across the country as a motivational and professional development speaker.

Her philosophy is simple: a parent has the greatest opportunity to be the most significant influence in a child's life. Kelly shares ten key types of influence―from Optimism to Accountability―that will inspire your kids and build your own sense of purpose and self-worth.

Illustrating her influencer philosophy with relatable anecdotes from her own life and raising gifted children, Kelly invites you into your own journey of self-discovery in one of the best books on parenting and child development. No matter the challenges, you can improve your life and empower your children when you Parent Up!


PRAISE FOR PARENT UP

Not always protecting our kids, but allowing them to own the consequences of their actions, helps them learn to be confident, empathetic, accountable, and ultimately empowered to live their best lives.
― Kristi Yamaguchi, Olympic champion and New York Times best-selling author
Parent Up reminds today's teachers, parents, and caregivers that leadership requires empathy, and the better we understand others, the better we understand ourselves.
― Michele Borba, EdD, author of Unselfie: Why Empathetic Kids Succeed in Our All-About-Me World
Parent Up gives parents the confidence to raise our children in a way that works for our families, and inspires resilience and self-sufficiency in our kids.
― Lindsay Powers, author of You Can't F*ck Up Your Kids: A Judgment-Free Guide to Stress-Free Parenting

When he's not mauling the bell at the New York Stock Exchange, ProShares Executive Director Troy Goldstein moonlights as the Skating Club of New York's long-time executive vice president and newly-anointed president.

Ten of our elite skaters and their partners visited him rink-side at Skate America. Notice how he manages the same suave smile in every photo. Troy, you missed your calling as a fashion model!

It is with great sadness that we have decided to cancel this year’s Middle Atlantic Championships. The Skating Club of New York has always prided itself on being cautious and protective of our skaters and our community. As we continued to work through the return to play and the obstacles surrounding Covid-19, we have determined that we could not assure everyone that we could safely run our event.

We hope that during this time you are preparing, training and most importantly, staying safe and healthy. We look forward to hosting you at our event in September of 2021, when we can celebrate the 95th anniversary of Mids together.

As the season progresses, Skating Club of New York members please be on the lookout for an exciting announcement and opportunity.

Thanks for your ongoing understanding and support.

UPDATE

Yesterday NYC entered Phase 1.
On behalf of The Skating Club of New York we want to update you on The 95th Annual Middle Atlantic Figure Skating Championships scheduled for September 10-13.

Sky Rink is scheduled to open July 20th, as ice rinks are in Phase 4.
We do not yet know if we will be able to hold the competition. The health and safety of our athletes, officials, and volunteers is our top priority. This is a dynamic situation, and as updated information becomes available we will be adapting the competition's format to comply with the latest guidelines. As a result, we may not be able to host our competition in its traditional format.

We will not open registration before July 20th, and will only do so if we will be able to enforce Governor Cuomo’s guidelines and the recommendations of US Figure Skating. If we are able to proceed with Mids, we will offer only IJS events (Juvenile through Senior). The 6.0 events (No Test through Open Juvenile and Excel events) will be rescheduled for another date.

Thank you for your understanding.

The Skyliners Junior team competes March 14-15 at the 2020 ISU World Junior Synchronized Skating Championships in Nottingham, England. The Skyliners are the 2017-2020 US national champions and defending world bronze medalists. They will be joined in Nottingham by Teams Elite, the 2020 US silver medalists.

Go Team USA!
