Participation in figure skating offers many great benefits for your child, aside from the obvious exercise; many aspects of the sport will help your child grow to be successful. Values skaters learn through their participation include: appreciation for an active, healthy lifestyle; self-esteem, self-confidence, self-discipline and self-reliance; an ability to manage stress, perform under pressure and test emotional and physical balance; being part of an exciting individual or team sport; developing short term and long term goals; managing success and disappointment; appreciating fair play and being a good sport; and learning respect for others.
Joining a club is an important step in a figure skater's life, as the club becomes a skater's training home. Joining a club is essential once a skater is ready to take official US Figure Skating Tests or compete in competitions. Our club offers weekly club ice sessions, an annual test session and competition with judges so skaters can advance, two ice shows, fundraising activities, social events, and an annual awards banquet. The officers and board members of the McCall Figure Skating Club are committed to making this club the best it can be for all our children. Skating with MFSC is a great place for kids to engage in physical activity in a safe and positive environment; not to mention its being the perfect place to fight the winter blues and cool off from summer's heat.
Parent participation is a MUST for our club to be successful. The most important thing you can do as the parent of a figure skater is inform yourself on the “nuts and bolts” of the MFSC and US Figure Skating rules, as well as supporting your skater on and off the ice. MFSC officers, Board of Directors, Committee Members, and coaches are all here to guide you along the way and make this an amazing journey for your family.
We're currently accepting new members for the 2019 - 2020 membership years. All MFSC memberships are from July 1st until June 30th. Whether you want to join MFSC as your home club or as an associate club member,we'd love to have you!
