About The Club

The Wisconsin Rapids Figure Skating Club maintains several programs to promote recreational and competitive figure skating in the Wisconsin Rapids area.

Where to begin?

Beginning skaters are invited to enroll in our USFSA Learn To Skate program. Skating is a great sport for almost everyone. It is good exercise and helps to build muscles, stimulate your heart, and improve coordination and balance. Our youngest skaters begin at the age of three; however, beginning skaters can be any age. We have an increasing number of teenagers and adults starting lessons each session.

The Next Step - Joining the WRFSC

Learn to skate students in Basic 3 through Basic 8, may want to begin club skating as a WRFSC Junior Club Member. Junior Club members are invited to skate for thirty minute sessions with a contract. Senior skaters are available at no cost to help Junior Club skaters master skating moves from their Learn-To-Skate classes or even plan a short skating routine. Fees for Junior Club are very reasonable and vary depending upon the number of days in each session.

Skaters in Basic 1 and above may otherwise, choose full membership in the Wisconsin Rapids Figure Skating Club. Students who join the WRFSC are eligible to skate during “club ice” times on Monday and Wednesday evenings and Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings. This ice time provides more opportunities for skaters to expand their options in figure skating.

Becoming a Member

To become a member of the WRFSC you must first obtain an ice contract. Ice contracts are issued at least one month prior to the start of the fall, winter, or summer sessions. The contract details the options available for the chosen session. Membership in the WRFSC automatically makes the skater a member of the USFS. A single fee of $75.00 is required to become a member of the WRFSC and the USFS. A portion of this fee is sent to the USFS for enrollment. Membership entitles the member to participate in any USFS sanctioned competition or test session. Members also will receive copies of "Skating," a magazine that is published by the USFS. In addition, the South Wood County Board requires each figure skating family to assist in the maintenance of the facility. At this time, WRFSC members must pledge to work 10 hours on building and facility maintenance. If the 10 hours are not met within one skating year, a fee of $10.00 per hour will be charged to the skater. You may download an ice contract here. The document is in Adobe PDF format, and you will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader installed to view it. It is a free download.

Private Lessons

During "club ice" time skaters can receive a private lesson from one of the WRFSC coaches. Skaters need to contact the coach of their choice and schedule lessons. Information on coaches can be found on the WRFSC coaches' biography page.

Competitions and Test Sessions

Individual skaters may participate in competitions and test sessions. Coaches of the WRFSC will plan to attend several competitions and test sesions each year to assist their students.

Synchronized Skating

The WRFSC formed a new Synchonize skating team in 2009. Please see Sally Auclair for more information about the team or if you are interested in joining.

Ice Dancing

The WRFSC offers ice dancing as another option for skaters. Learn-to-Skate Dance can be taken starting at the Basic 8 level. Ice dancing gives skaters a good understanding of edges and flow. Testing in Ice Dancing regquires parterning with a male dance partner. Adults are also good candidates for ice dance; it has no jumping and is low impact. All you need is a love of skating and music.

The Ice Show

The WRFSC performs an ice show each year. Previous shows have been very successful and lots of fun for skaters and audiences alike. All Learn to Skate skaters and all club members are invited to participate in the show.
