2021 SFSC Membership Applications

Sydney Figure Skating Club (SFSC) prides itself on being able to offer members a number of opportunities to represent our Club – as single or artistic skaters, as part of a pairs or ice dance couple, or as a member of one of our established Majestic Ice Australia (MIA) synchronized ice skating teams. (Please note that acceptance into a MIA team is subject to MIA’s selection process.).

SFSC welcomes all skaters whether you choose to compete or not. Membership provides a variety of skating and social opportunities that are not to be missed out on!

Before completing your 2021 Membership Application Form please take the time to read the following information.

General information

  • Fill in a membership form for EACH skater in the family.
  • Carefully read the conditions at the top of the form.
