Raising champions since 1961

The Sydney Figure Skating Club  is Australia’s oldest surviving figure skating club. It was conceived in 1961 at the Bondi Junction Ice Rink in Spring Street Bondi Junction, and this is quite possibly where the club chose its distinctive colours of blue, white and red.  The Bondi Junction rink stood on the same site as the current home of the Roosters Club “Easts”.
Called at that time the Bondi Junction Ice Dance and Figure Skating Club, the Club changed its name to the Sydney Figure Skating Club when it moved to the newly opened Burwood Glaciarium in 1964.
It established the Hollins Trophy in 1968 in honour of the Late Mr Ray Hollins, Club Treasurer and  father of two dedicated skaters.  This event is Australia’s largest non-championship competition and is conducted annually at Canterbury Olympic Ice Rink as an ISU International Inter-club event.
Over nearly 50 years, the Club has had many members who have gone on to represent Australia at international, World and Winter Olympic events.

With the school holidays approaching, there are some changes to figure skating sessions at the start of October.

 Please note the following changes:

 Monday 1st October (Labour Day Public Holiday)

No early morning figure session (5.30am-8.00am)

Morning Figure Practice Session: 7.30am-9.30am

No afternoon figure practice (2.45-4.15pm)

No skate school

 Tuesday 2nd October – Friday 5th October

Morning figure practice finishes at 9.30am instead of 10.00am (due to School Holiday Lessons)

 Monday 8th October – Friday 12th October

Morning figure practice finishes at 9.30am instead of 10.00am (due to School Holiday Lessons)

Monday Afternoon Figure Session
The rink has undertaken a review of our higher level Figure Practice sessions (2.45pm – 3.45pm on Tuesday and Friday afternoons). The current compliance for any skater to train in these sessions requires you to have completed your Advanced Novice technical and pattern tests.

Proposed arrangements for this session would require you to have completed both technical and pattern tests of the Novice Basic * test level (*old Primary test level). This represents a lower test level compliance to the existing policy.

This proposed change will be on a trial basis for 4 months commencing 3rd September 2018 up to 31 December 2018.
