The University of Michigan Figure Skating Club (UMFSC) freestyle program is a great opportunity for both beginning and experienced skaters to practice and compete in a relaxed environment.

The freestyle team competes against other Midwestern schools at intercollegiate competitions, offering skaters of all levels an opportunity to compete in freestyle, solo dance, and team maneuvers. We also host two ice shows per year, which are a great chance for skaters to create fun programs and show off their talents to family and friends.

UMFSC has two general sessions per week at our campus rink, Yost Ice Arena. These sessions are not only a time to practice individual skills and programs, but a place for skaters to get to know one another better.

Interested skaters can join UMFSC as a freestyle member. Freestyle skaters can choose to skate all freestyle sessions or sign-on individually, and can choose to skate recreationally or represent UMFSC at intercollegiate competitions.

UMFSC does not currently offer any freestyle coaching staff or test sessions, but many skaters take advantage of ice time, coaches, and test sessions at nearby rinks, including the Ann Arbor Ice Cube.
