Introducing Our Improved Club Ice!


We are excited to announce Atlanta Figure Skating Club's expanded Club Ice program by offering TWO Club Ice sessions.


On the BLUE RINK, from 5:15 - 5:45 pm, our fabulous instructors will rotate teaching classes in edges, spins, performance and power.


On the RED RINK, from 5:45 - 6:45 pm, Club Ice continues, so work on the new skills you just learned and enjoy skating with friends who love skating as much as you do!  Note - the first 20 minutes will be devoted to exhibitions as requested.


Club Ice is available to full skating members who have passed the Pre-Preliminary moves test or have been readiness tested by our Test Committee coaches.
