Registration for 2016-17

July represents the official start of the Yale Figure Skating Club (YFSC) 2016-2017 skating year! Current memberships in YFSC and the United States Figure Skating (USFS) expire on June 30, 2016.

Renew your membership now for uninterrupted coverage of your USFS insurance benefits and to maintain your eligibility to participate in any USFS-sanctioned event during the summer such as a USFS competition, test session, or skating program requiring USFS membership. New members may also join the club at this time by using the same membership form.

Signup forms for fall subscription ice will be available later in the summer.

Preview of the Coming Skating Season

While the beginning of the skating season at Ingalls Rink is still a few months away, planning for several changes is now underway:

  • USFS has renamed the Basic Skills program Learn to Skate USA and will be providing YaleFSC with a new program that will focus on fun, fundamentals, a progressive curriculum, community learning, and safety.

  • Our last year's 50 minute Basic Skills session wil become a 60 minute session under the new Learn to Skate USA program. This will provide more time for small group instruction, guided practice, a Performance Preparation group class, and the opportunity for private lessons.

  • A Theater on Ice program for skaters who have advanced beyond Basic Skills is being planned.

  • Advanced skaters may serve as Apprentice coaches.

  • Incentives for members and parents to contribute volunteer time will be available.

  • A skate rental program subsidized by our Special Projects Fund will be implemented.

  • Our web site has moved! The new URL is http://www.cs.yale.edu/yfsc. The old URL will continue to work for the indefinite future, but please update your bookmarks.

We expect this skating season to be one of our best ever! We look forward to your membership and participation. Please do not hesitate to contact our Membership Chair, Mary Brett Lee <yalefsc@gmail.com>, with questions or concerns.
