CLUBS

CENTRAL VERMONT FIGURE SKATING CLUB

Freestyle skating is available for club members Sunday mornings from 7:30 to 10:30 beginning November 9th though February 22nd.  The cost for Sunday morning sessions is $350 for the year (16 weeks), paid in advance.  If you’d like to check it out first, there is a drop in fee of $15/hr. for residents and $18/hr. for non-residents (maximum of two visits). Drop in fees will be deducted from your membership if you decide to join.

 

We are a loose affiliation of figure skaters, some competitive, some strictly recreational, working on many different levels to improve our skills and have a great time doing it. We welcome all levels of figure skaters but for safety reasons, younger children must skate well enough to get out of the way of fast moving competitive skaters and be mature enough to be aware of their presence. This is not an appropriate time for beginning skaters. We especially extend a welcome to adults who haven’t done figure skating in years but would like to give it a try again.  Come join us for a great, fun workout!
