WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME TO JOIN A FIGURE SKATING CLUB Joining a club is an important step in a figure skater’s life, as this becomes your training home. Once a skater is ready to take official U.S. Figure Skating tests or compete in competitions beyond Basic Skills, joining a club becomes necessary.
Here are some reasons to join:
- More parental involvement will be a win/win for your skater.
- You will have a direct link to all the information provided by your club and U.S. Figure Skating.
- You will have a voice and a vote in club business.
- By being more involved, you are more likely to have a positive experience in the sport.
- When nominations are being sought for club board positions, you would already be a club member.
- Clubs will benefit from a larger membership base.
No skating experience is necessary! Membership is open to supporters and skaters of all ages and skill levels from beginner to advanced.
Membership is valid from July 1 – June 30 each year.
Membership dues are nonrefundable and not able to be prorated due USFSA membership rules.
