Membership in the Columbus Figure Skating Club is open to anyone interested in pursuing or encouraging the sport of figure skating. No minimum skating skill level is required! Our members coach, officiate, practice, receive instruction, and compete at various ice rinks in the Columbus area, as well as throughout Ohio, the United States, and internationally. Columbus FSC purchases ice at the Ohio State University Ice Rink for use by club members. See our Ice Calendar for upcoming ice times.

Are you interested in joining Columbus FSC for the first time?
To become a first-time member of CFSC, email our Membership Chair. Be sure to include general background information, such as the skater’s name, DOB/age, group lesson or test level, and the private lesson coach’s name, if applicable. Upon approval, you will be directed to the club’s Entreeze Membership Page for full application. New members are welcome to join at any time during the year, but membership fees cannot be pro-rated.
CFSC offers several types of club membership. All CFSC members automatically become members of U.S. Figure Skating (USFS), the national governing body of our sport. Like U.S. Figure Skating, CFSC membership runs from July 1 to June 30, annually.
Benefits of CFSC membership include skating on club-monitored ice sessions, priority testing at CFSC-sponsored test sessions, performing in USFS-sanctioned club exhibitions, competing in USFS qualifying events as a club member, receiving a USFS member number and card, as well as a subscription to Skating Magazine.
