About Sikumi Figure Skating Club (SFSC)
Sikumi Figure Skating Club (SFSC) exists to provide figure skating and the figure skating experience to its members. Club membership is for skaters who are looking to grow from basic skills to more advanced figure skating. The club provides opportunities for group instruction, performance, competition, and social camaraderie. Sikumi FSC is a program by On the Ice, Inc. Sikumi FSC was established in 2016. We are evolving as a club and we will grow along with our skaters’ needs.
Parents and skaters are vital to the success of the club.
No mandatory volunteering, however, we utilize volunteers such that parents can be engaged with their skaters. Our full/home club members have access to special ice prices, represent our club at competitions, wear our official club jackets, be invited to participate in fun events such as Winter Fest and Spring SKATEacular Skate Shows, social gatherings & special club skating events. Associate club members can participate in club functions and discount cards.
Coaches, KLA Staff and I look forward to providing a positive figure skating community and experience.

Notes for new parents and skaters to figure skating club venue...
The purpose of this club is to create the environment where our figure skaters have a convenient opportunity to practice their skills, take lessons, participate in skill development clinics, perform at shows, compete, have fun social interaction with fellow club members.
Sikumi FSC offers this with unlimited skate time during our weekday afternoon club ice sessions. These sessions are where our Learn to Skate figure skaters become figure skaters with practice, skill sessions, and lessons to not only learn, but have fun!
Parents, now your skater can practice at an affordable annual one-time cost with abundant skate times. Whether your skater wants to practice a little one day or longer another, the club ice sessions allows for this flexibility. Each new full member receives a SIKUMI FSC jacket and United State Figure Skating annual membership along with a few other perks outlined in our SIKUMI FSC brochure.
If your skater decides to compete, the necessary representation is already there. Figure skating is a great form of fitness and artistry plus the SIKUMI FSC will allow the skaters to get to know each other and the coaches. This camaraderie makes for a fun time on the ice and off the ice with social activities or cheering each other on.
Our instructors have mini- clinics included to give structure to the newer skaters so they have direction and sociability for practicing skills. Periodic shows will be a great focal point for skater performance whether in a group or individually.
This is the figure skating pipeline we are thrilled to offer that develops the skaters in whatever direction they choose. As the club develops each year, we will grow with the needs of its members.
Please feel free to contact me (Kat) if you have any questions and concerns. Call 717-685-1401 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you,Kathleen Kelly
