OFSC has very dedicated and hands on parents that work tirelessly to ensure our skaters have an amazing, fun time. Our parents ensure our skaters have plenty of team activities and events to attend, like traveling to skating competitions throughout the year, if desired, banquets, holiday parties, etc. Our skaters typically become very close with their fellow teammates. They build lifelong friendships with other skaters from OFSC and skaters from other rinks they meet at competitions!
Owensboro Figure Skating Club currently has three coaches. Our coaches work on a strictly volunteer basis. Their generosity saves our club members a lot of money each year in coaching fees so that skating with OFSC is affordable for all families!
Skating itself has many health benefits, such as improved cardiovascular health, improved muscle & joint flexibility, and improved balance & coordination. Skating is a great way to stay active, manage weight, and stress relief! Many skaters say their "happy place" is at the rink.
Did you know that skating works nearly every muscle in the body?

A skater can compete at any age and level. Competing is a great way for them to build confidence and self-esteem. The club participates in a home competition every March, typically held the last weekend in March. This is held here in Owensboro. We may travel to other locations, depending on skater and parent/guardian interest. Competitions are not mandatory as a part of club, but highly encouraged.. Each skater must pay their own competition fees to compete, unless fundraising is done to cover those costs. Coaching fees apply for travel, lodging, and food for the coaches, while at the competitions.
