Red River Valley Figure Skating Club

The Red River Valley Figure Skating Club has been in existence since the early 1960s. It is a nonprofit organization, governed by the USFSA. A local group of Officers and Board of Directors govern the operations of the club. We were formed to promote and teach amateur figure skating. We offer instruction in dance, free skate and moves in the field for the recreational as well as the competitive skater. There is the option of skating almost every day, year-round or 1-2 weeks a year. All ice and private lesson fees are the responsibility of the skater and/or parents. We offer summer school, test sessions, seminars, and synchronized team skating as well as our annual competition in February. We also offer the USFSA Basic Skills classes in the summer.
