High School Skating Club Teams
- Policies and Participation Requirements

What Purpose does a High School Skating Club Fulfill?
     The goal of a high school figure skating club is to provide a vehicle so high school students may participate in the sport of figure skating as an extra-curricular "club" activity and possibly letter in a junior varsity or varsity school sport.

     A participating skater must be enrolled in grades 9 through 12, and attend school full time (insert names of skaters and the participating high school in the competition announcement form).

     Interested male and female skaters may join.

     Skaters must meet the academic grade requirements established by the Senior High School Figure Skating Club (SHSFSC). The minimum grade point average per/marking period quarter is usually 1.66. Skaters must submit copies of report cards after each quarter to the skating team coach.

     All skaters must have an annual physical before participating in tryouts. The completed and signed physical form must be turned in to the coach or athletic office.

     To be considered for a position on a High School Competitive Skating Team, skaters must have passed the following USFS standard tests:

(A Team) Pre-Juvenile Free Skating test

(B Team) passed Preliminary Free skating test

(C team) passed no higher than the Pre-Preliminary Free skating test.

     All members are expected to participate in team try-out process.

     All club team skaters must be current USFS and SHS FSC members. They must also purchase a minimum of 2 additional skating sessions per/week (General, Free skate, Moves or Dance) for training besides regularly scheduled High School Team practice ice sessions.

     All skaters will be financially responsible for providing their own equipment, team uniforms, and all club expenses as necessary to participate.

Participation fees:

  • Competitive team skater (level A & B) and pre competitive skater (level C)
    Participation fee includes regular season ice time, coaching during regular season ice time, and coach's time and expenses for 2 U.P. competitions, USFS High School Club Team membership, and SHS FSC Club team membership. (Does not include any competition entry fees, or additional ice time and coaching expenses for state championships)
  • Non skating team skater (does not include any ice time or coaching, but does include USFS High School Club Team membership and SHS FSC club team membership).
  • Team uniform:
    • 1) Team dress  (female skaters),  Team  pants and shirt (male skaters)
    • 2) Black wrap sweater
    • 3) Team warm-up outfit
    • 4) Micro fiber over the boot covers
  •  Competitive team members will contribute their share of the competition entry fee.
  • All travel costs will be the responsibility of the skater's family.  Travel Permission Waiver's must be signed by all team members and their parents. These form MUST be on file with the coach prior to attending competitions on sites off the school grounds.
  • The cost of the physical is the skaters responsibility.
  • It is skater's responsibility of each team members to be current in their USFS membership, SHS FSC dues, and ice time charges.

     Skaters will be required to adhere to the SHS FSC Athletic code, and the USFS code of ethics and code of conduct (found in your USFS rulebook). SHS FSC advisory committee and SHS FSC board will be responsible for enforcement.

     SHS School "Letters" will be awarded to all members that meet the criteria. Each skater will be responsible to get necessary documentation to the team coach.

     Contact with the school, HS Club, USFS, SHS FSC, publicity etc., will be directed by the SHS FSC coach/advisory committee.

     Fundraising requires adult supervision and help, therefore; in addition to skater participation, all parents will be required to participate in at least 1 fundraising activity throughout the season.

     All team practices are mandatory.

     Team members are expected to participate in all club activities including all competition's unless special circumstances prevent skater from participation. This will be at the coaches' discretion and skaters must  informed the coaches well in advance of the absence.
