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 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.
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.
Sikumi FSC was established in 2016. We are evolving as a club and we will grow along with our skaters’ needs.
For the 2018-19 season, our club members will 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 Spectacular Skate Shows, social gatherings & special club skating events.

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.

Basic Rules Governing All Behavior
- Please respect the rights of others
- Please respect the Klick Lewis Arena property and the property of others
Specific Rules Governing Free Skating Sessions
The maximum number of skater (depending on size and level) will be allowed on each session. This will be determined by the Executive Director.
Sign in/out at the front desk
- No breakable containers are allowed rink side. Drinks are allowed on or below the railing. Food is not permitted near the rail or on the ice
- Please pick up all belongings (including dirty tissues, water cups, bottles, etc.) at the end of the session
- Parents, skaters not in the session or other spectators should not loiter at the rail or benches. This is unsafe and it interferes with a constructive training session
- Coaching by parents from the bleachers, benches or railing is not allowed at anytime. Parents will be asked to leave the arena
- The benches by the ice are to be used by the skaters and coaches only
- If you are a less experienced skater, please be extra careful to stay aware of other skaters and to look ahead of where you are skating to see what others are doing or are about to do
- If you are an experienced skater, please be patient with the less experienced skaters. Remember – you were new to skating at one time, too
- Please be understanding if someone gets in your way. Remember to look both ways before leaving the rink wall or skating across the ice. Keep moving while on the ice, as it is dangerous for both you and the other skaters to stand still during a session. It is especially important not to stop in the middle of the ice or any of the jumping corners.
Right of Way
- The skater doing a routine to music has the right of way. Please stay aware of which skater is doing his or her routine and do your best to stay clear of his or her pattern.
- Skaters taking a lesson have the right of way over general skaters in the session.
- Skaters on the harness also have the right away. Please be careful of the harness area when in use. Harness may only be used with a coach in a lesson.
