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.

On Friday night, Team Unity took to the ice in Helsinki, Finland as part of the World Synchronised Figure Skating Championships. Despite it only being the team’s second time at the prestigious event, they smashed out an outstanding skate to the song ‘Call Out My Name’ and earned 40.93 points for their short program. This put them in 15th place out of 24 teams heading into the free program.

The energy and excitement only increased on Saturday night as they delivered a spectacular free skate, with only a few minor errors. Their efforts awarded them a total combined score of 121.32 which saw them comfortably hold onto their position in 15th.

This was the highest placing Australia has ever received in a senior World Championship event and is a huge achievement for Team Unity, as well as for the Australian synchro community.
