Board of Directors

Our Board is comprised of enthusiastic parents of young skaters (some of us skate, albeit a bit), adult skaters, and coaches, who understand that creating a nurturing atmosphere is key to skater progress and enjoyment. We are dedicated to our children, the beautiful sport of figure skating and healthy lifestyles. We are also a very diverse group of people with different ethnic backgrounds who respect all cultures and strive to create an accepting skating environment for skaters of all ages.

Conflict Resolution Process:

If you experience a difficulty with another member of the club where you feel they have violated a Club, PSA or USFS policy, we ask that you start with CIFSC’s Conflict Resolution Process. The complaint must be filed within 15 days of the incident, infraction or discovery of the alleged violation. Once you have gathered all the requested information, it should be submitted to the club’s President, or if the issue is with the President, another club officer (such as the Vice President).  CIFSC adheres to all Safe Sports policies of US Figure Skating.
