Skating in college is a great way to continue participating in the sport you love while obtaining a degree. Whether you want to continue participating in competitive freestyle, or just have a chance to brush up on your skills and meet some great people, the University of Michigan Figure Skating Club (UMFSC) is for you.
At Michigan, we strive for excellence in the classroom and on the ice, and as a result our skaters have the opportunity to obtain a first-rate education while representing a Big Ten school in competitions all over the country. Being a member of the figure skating club gives skaters a support network to ease the adjustment to college life, and provides a small, tight-knit community within the large university. Beyond just competing and skating, the club participates in team bonding activities, mixers with other clubs, and community outreach events. There is no better way to combine excellence in academics and athletics than at the University of Michigan.
The UMFSC is open to all U of M students, male or female, undergrad or graduate, at any of the three campuses - Ann Arbor, Flint, and Dearborn. There are no tryouts to become a member of the club, we welcome all skill levels and interests.
The cost of joining depends on your level of participation, and varies slightly every year depending on our budget. For more information about how to join, attend our mass meeting in the fall or contact one of our officers.
If you are a high school student considering attending the University of Michigan or a current Michigan student looking to get back into the sport, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our mailing list. Please include your name, address, phone number, email address, year of graduation if in high school, test level, and experience. Please feel free to email us with any other questions you may have. Also, let us know if you are planning a visit to campus, we would love to meet with you and give you an idea of what our club is all about. Go Blue!
