Important Updates & Information!

The Northwoods Figure Skating Club Board of Directors met virtually on Tuesday July 7th. Our annual membership meeting will be held on August 18th at 6:30pm via Zoom. More information will be updated and available as arrangements are made. We appreciate your patience as we navigate this unprecedented situation.



Hello NFSC Families!

Hopefully you’re all staying well!

Our Board of Directors met virtually on Tuesday evening to discuss the possibility of having our 2020 show, as well as the possibility of a summer skating session, and lessons into the fall. At this time, we did make the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 show. There are safety parameters set forth by Barron County, Department of Health and Human Services, and US Figure Skating that would have made our show nearly impossible to carry out. We’re all sad and especially so, for our seniors. We did make the decision, however, to invite our seniors back for our 2021 Show as our featured guests and we’re hopeful that will work out.

There will not be refunds of show fees. Each skater was provided with the opportunity to skate with a coach in practicing their number(s) for 4 weeks, they have their costume to keep, and in addition, they will be receiving their show t-shirt, medal, and a program. Adding up those items that came at a cost, we hope you understand how we could not financially sustain refunds. Please be on the look-out for an email coming soon that will have details in regards to being able to pick up your skater’s items listed. Otherwise, they will be available when we’re able to meet again at the rink.

In terms of a summer session, we’re closely monitoring the guidelines set forth by the authorities listed above. While we don’t have current plans in place, we will be meeting in early July to assess the situation to determine if we could safely offer lessons later in the summer and into the fall. Please be watching your email for more details. We know many of our skaters are ready and waiting to get back to the rink. We are too-we just want to make sure we’re following safety precautions and guidelines set forth to provide a safe environment for our skaters.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions.

Welcome to the Northwoods Figure Skating Club!

The Northwoods Figure Skating Club (NFSC) is a non-profit, non-stock incorporated organization whose purpose is to encourage instruction, practice and advancement of its members in all types of figure skating and basic hockey skating concepts. NFSC was founded in 1989 and skates at the Cumberland and Rice Lake Hockey Arenas, as well as, the Spooner Civic Center.

NFSC is an official member of the United States Figure Skating Association (USFSA), the governing body of amateur skating in the United States. This association entitles the local skaters to conduct and participate in official USFSA test sessions, competitions and ice shows.

Along with taking lessons with NFSC, many of our skaters participate in USFSA testing and competitions. Our Free Style skaters have a strong presence at the Northland Competition in Duluth, Roseville Competition, Maplewood Classic, Eau Claire Competition and many more!

NFSC accepts skaters throughout the year. Our club consists of all skill levels from ages 4 and up. We are always looking to grow our participation in the club. Questions regarding the NFSC can be directed to
