NEW EVENT THIS YEAR for beginner thru preliminary skaters: spins challenge! 

Compete USA Competition Mission: The purpose of the competition is to promote a fun, introductory, competitive experience for the beginning skater.

Volunteers Opportunities & Changes

By Laura 02/14/2019, 3:00pm CST

We are entering the final weeks of our skating season. These final weeks are the busiest for our skaters and our club! Without volunteers, much of the work becomes a large burden on only a few people. The more hands and feet, helps lessen the load for everyone.
 

The following events in March are in need of volunteers: 

  • Test Session: March 7-8, 2019
  • Competition: March 8-9, 2019 
  • Skating Show Set Up, Photos, Performances & More: Various Dates in March

For those of you who have participated in the annual FFSC show in past years, you know that our greatest need for volunteers was for locker room monitors. For the safety of our skaters and to be sure we follow SafeSport policies and procedures, volunteer locker room monitor positions will not be assigned  to volunteers this year. To adhere to SafeSport policies, all locker monitors must have a current background check on file and complete the SafeSport training. Our coaching staff and members of the club who meet these requirements will be used as locker room monitors during dress rehearsal and show performances instead of parent volunteers. 

What does this mean? Your required volunteer hours need to be completed in another fashion this year. 
If you have any questions or concerns regarding volunteer requirements, please contact Laura Dewey at 218-332-0196 or via email at ffscopsdirector@gmail.com 

Dress & Skating Apparel Swap

By Laura 01/22/2019, 3:30pm CST

Is your skater going to be competing in the Compete USA Competition hosted by our club in March? 
Would you skater like a skating dress? 
OR
Do you have skating dresses and apparel that are too small?


With our annual Compete USA Competition in the near future, we have many FFSC Learn to Skate skaters starting to look for dresses! Please bring any skating dresses that you would like to sell to the FFSC Office before Monday, February 4th. 

Please be sure your dress is on a hanger. Attach an envelope to the dress with a safety pin. This envelope should state the size of the dress, the price and your name. 

We will put dresses out on Monday, February 4th and each Monday night during LTS classes up until the competition on March 8-9 for our club skaters to look through and purchase. We will also put dresses out during the weekend of the competition.
