We offer a wide variety of Memberships to our Skating Club:
Junior ~ for skaters under age 18 who wish to join the club and participate in club activities. This membership also allows the skater to compete in USFS competitions.
Associate ~ for skaters who are already members of another club but would also like the benefits that we have to offer.
Introductory ~ for skaters under age 18 who wish to begin testing. This membership expires June 30th every year, and is only good for the first year of testing.
Parent of Introductory ~ free membership for parents of Introductory skaters who are under age 18. Required with Introductory Membership.
Single Membership ~ for skaters who are over age 18.
Family ~ for up to two family members. This membership includes testing once the Introductory membership has expired.

This membership is also ideal for families with more than one skater.
