About Yale FSC
Welcome to Yale Figure Skating Club!
Our Club is a member of the United States Figure Skating Association (U.S. Figure Skating), the national governing body of ice skating in the United States. We offer sessions for skaters at all levels and provide group instruction in the Learn to Skate USA program, which is endorsed by U.S. Figure Skating, USA Hockey and US SpeedSkating. Group instruction is available for beginners. Private and semi-private lessons can be arranged directly with our professional skating coaches.
We skate at Ingalls Rink (the Yale Whale), located at the corner of Prospect and Sachem Streets in New Haven, CT.

The mission of the Yale Figure Skating Club is to promote and encourage participation in the sport of figure skating by providing fun and challenging programs for all ages and levels of skaters. We provide opportunities for skill development, competition and performance in support of individual needs and goals. We strive to create a community that shares the life-long love and joy of figure skating.
