Club Ice

FFSC Holiday Exhibition 2017

Our home ice is Jay Lively Ice Arena. Unlike at most rinks, FFSC runs the freestyle sessions. We rent ice from the city-owned rink for use by our members and members of other USFSA clubs. Our sessions are reserved for freestyle, ice dance, pairs skating, private lessons, public exhibitions, shows, test sessions, and competitions.

Club Ice

The ice rink is fully open with no COVID restrictions as of April, 2022.

Club ice must be reserved and purchased by 9 pm the day before the session via the Contract Ice tab on the FFSC Online Membership System. Same-day walk-ins are not allowed. There is a discount for buying multiple sessions. Ice payments are subject to the club's Financial Policy.

Sessions are limited to 25 skaters, not including coaches.

FFSC sessions and special events are open only to figure skaters who are members of FFSC or a USFSA member club. Members of other USFSA clubs are welcome but must sign a waiver (once per season) and buy ice time on the club's Online Membership System. Members of other USFSA clubs can create a guest account.

Club Ice is Subject to Change

The table below shows our normal times- it is NOT updated for temporary changes.

Club ice may be canceled or rescheduled because of technical problems or an event, and additional FFSC sessions may be scheduled before upcoming test sessions and regional competitions. Check the Home page and the club calendar for updates and changes. The current ice contract on our online membership site also shows any ice times changes. And we notify all members of changes via email.

Specialty Classes

FFSC coaches occasionally hold specialty on-ice classes such as power stroking, choreography, and more. These are normally held on Sundays from 4:15 to 4:45 pm, though classes may be as short as 15 minutes and as long as 45 minutes. Classes will be announced via our website and by email to members. Costs are- 15-minute $5, 30-minute $10, and 45-minute $15. Payments for specialty classes may be made online via the FFSC Membership System. Select the Contract Ice tab. You can also pay by check in the club drop box in the staff office at the rink.

Club Ice Rules

Skate safely at all times!

  • A senior member or a parent must be present in the rink where they can observe the skating any time junior members are on the ice. This is a liability issue and there will be no exceptions
  • Always look in the direction you are skating and watch for other skaters at all times
  • Enter and leave the ice by skating around the ends- don't cut across
  • Skaters practicing a program must wear a program belt and have the right-of-way of all other skaters
  • Skaters in a lesson with their coach have the right-of-way over all skaters except those practicing a program
  • Leave the ice to talk or take a break- don't stand around on the ice
  • Cell phones may not be used on the ice or in the hockey and music boxes, except for skater's music
  • If you need to stop momentarily, skate to the boards
  • Observe the club jumping and spinning zones as posted at the rink, or download a copy.
  • Please check in with the ice monitor, if there is one, and turn in your music
  • There are no refunds on unused sessions. If you schedule a session please make every effort to keep this time as it would be unfair to other skaters who were unable to purchase ice
  • You can move to a different session if it has open slots- contact Bruce or Tresa
  • Your membership must be current in order to buy sessions. Renew online via EntryEeze

Safety Meetings

All FFSC skaters must attend at least one safety meeting each season. Safety meetings are normally held in September. Coaches are expected to hold safety meetings with new students who join at other times of the year. Parents of junior members 15 years and under must attend the safety meeting with their skater.

Parents, Friends, and Spectators

Non-skaters who are not assisting with the session are not allowed in the hockey boxes or music box during club sessions. This is to avoid distractions during lessons and practice. An exception is made for family members who wish to shoot photos or video of their skaters. Please check in with the ice monitor before entering a hockey box.

Ice Monitor

We seriously need ice monitors for our club sessions, so the board is implementing a program of credit against ice fees. If you volunteer four hours within a month, you'll get $10 credit for four ice sessions, or $40. If you volunteer eight hours in a month, you'll get $80 credit. The maximum credit for a month is $80. This credit applies to all volunteer hours for the club, except for Ice in the Pines, which the board will consider later on.

To get the credit, you must log onto your membership account on EntryEeze and record your hours on the volunteer tab, as per the screenshot. We will credit your account at the end of each month.

Here's how to ice monitor:

  • Sign up in advance for the session(s) you want to monitor on SignUp.com. Or use the button below
  • We will email the ice monitor sheets to all ice monitors after the session purchase deadline
  • If you didn't get the monitor sheets, just list all the skaters on plain paper
  • At the rink, check off the skaters on the ice monitor sheets. Anyone not on the ice monitor sheet has not paid and is not allowed to skate
  • Play music for the skaters and coaches
  • Afterward, log on to your membership account and enter your volunteer hours
  • Send the list of skaters to info@flagfsc.org
