Who we are
The ATLANTA FIGURE SKATING CLUB is an enthusiastic group of over 350 members who are devoted to the advancement and promotion of figure skating as an art and a sport. We are one of the largest clubs in the country, celebrating our 60th anniversary in 2018.
We are a member of U.S. Figure Skating, the governing body for the sport, which is recognized as such by the U.S. Olympic Committee and the International Skating Union.
Represented in national and international competitions
More than forty skaters and officials have represented the Atlanta FSC in both national and international competitions. Among those who have competed in international events for the U.S. are Alexander Aiken, Brittney McConn Bottoms, Allen Davis, Timothy Dolensky, Jackie Farrell, Brad Griffies, Todd Hansen, Kaysi Kitsell, Christopher Nolan, Leslie Sikes, Laura Steele, Colin VanderVeen, Valory Vennes, Debbie Walls, and Elizabeth Wright-Johnson.
Host of Major Competitions
The Atlanta FSC has hosted eight major competitions: the 1976, 1985 and 2000 South Atlantic Regional Championships, the 1992 Skate America senior international competition, the 1980 and 2004 State Farm U.S. Figure Skating Championships, the 2007 Eastern Sectional Championships and the 2022 Championship Series.
We have conducted over forty competitions, including two large annual Opens, over a dozen judges’ schools, and, in 2002, a U.S. Figure Skating Regional Training Camp.
With an impressive slate of officials
The Atlanta FSC is home to 25 figure skating officials, including six national judges. Five members have served as Directors of U.S. Figure Skating, and several members currently hold positions on national policy-making committees. In 1998, a 35-year Atlanta FSC member represented Atlanta as a judge for the XVIII Winter Olympic Games in Nagano, Japan.
