"When should I join the club?"
You may join the club at any time in your figure skating journey, however, full club and USFSA membership aren't needed until you are ready to start your testing journey! Until then your membership through Learn to Skate USA is plenty. The two Learn to Skate programs that feed into our club membership are the Aerodrome Ice Skating Complex and Ice at the Galleria. If you are a member of either of those LTS programs, we invite and encourage you to participate in any club-sponsored events, as well as purchase our club gear for competitions, etc.
All memberships expire June 30 of each year. Register by August 31 to avoid the late fee.
We encourage all members to represent the club with a club jacket!
