Adult Figure Skaters (amateurs generally 25 years and older) have many opportunities in the Santa Rosa Figure Skating Club. Great support is given to everyone by the SRFSC community. You may learn to skate and advance in skills by classes and professional coaching. The Club offers testing on your skills with levels for Pre-Bronze, Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Master Novice, Master Junior, and Master Senior. This may be as a solo skater, as a pair, or a team.Maureen in layback Adult Nationals 2007

You many wish to compete with other adults and competitions abound! See the Central California Interclub Association CCIA calendar for local events, or for events around the country check with the United States Figure Skating Association for sanctioned USFSA competitions.

For beginners or advanced adult skaters, the SRFSC provides many recreational opportunities. Every two years offers club skaters of all ages and abilities the chance to perform in our Club Ice Show. If you've ever wanted to skate in a professional show, this is close!

For your beginning and continued development as an adult skater there are also special adult skate times offered by the Redwood Empire Ice Arena. In addition to adult only general sessions and scheduled adult classes, the Arena has drop in adult "Coffee Club" times where you receive a group lesson, coffee, donut, and adult skating time. For times and prices see REIA's General Public Skating Schedule. You may also sign up for all-ages REIA freestyle sessions for your practice and coaching times.
