Friends of Figure Skating
Launched in 2001, Friends of Figure Skating has provided financial support to U.S. Figure Skating programs and athletes through annual membership giving. These contributions support programs such as Basic Skills and provide financial assistance to skaters at all levels with the goal of helping athletes compete successfully at the local, national and international levels. Together, Friends of Figure Skating (FOFS) members are instrumental in introducing the sport of figure skating to young men and women across the county and in developing and supporting the champions of today and tomorrow!
New members can join anytime throughout the year. Our traditional membership year is Oct. 1 through Sept. 30, coinciding with the competitive season. You can expect to receive your member benefit mailing in October.
All members receive a subscription to SKATING magazine and have the opportunity to attend members-only events and meet the athletes who are benefiting from your support. As you upgrade your membership, you will receive additional benefits such as priority seating options at U.S. Figure Skating events, official Friends of Figure Skating gear, complimentary hospitality passes and all-session tickets to the U.S. Figure Skating Championships!
