WELCOME TO THE SYDNEY FIGURE SKATING CLUB

Dear Members & Visitors, 

Our rink’s closure has brought a couple of extra challenges to our training schedule in the lead up to States and possibly Nationals. 

However, it has also brought us a timely reminder of how lucky we are to be part of such a wonderfully supportive skating community. 

SFSC has been in touch with all of the rinks to see how our members can be supported. 

We thank every rink for immediately trying to work out how best to help us, given that hockey and speed also need ice. 

Please see a list of the immediate metropolitan rinks and any necessary limitations that they might have, below.

Before purchasing any available discounted rink entry passes, don’t forget to check which rink your coach will be coaching at in case it’s not the same as the one you wish to train at outside lesson times.

Raising champions since 1961

The Sydney Figure Skating Club  is Australia’s longest continuing 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.
