Benefits of Membership

Club Ice/Social Events:

A great place to get to know other Club members is at Club ice events! Club ice is free to all basic skills and regular members of TGCFSC. We host parties for most major holidays and sometimes just for fun. Check the home page for upcoming club ice dates. This is a chance to play and skate with your friends and to make new friends. We also host Exhibitions, Send offs, an Annual Pool Party and other events as time and fundraising allow. You won’t want to miss…

Test Sessions

We host six test sessions throughout the year. Our popular test sessions afford skaters the opportunity to test when ready so goals are achieved in a timely and uninterrupted manner. Club Members receive a discounted rate for test sessions and discounts on re-tests when needed. They also afford our home skaters the opportunity to test on their home ice.

Skater Development

Each year our club provides multiple opportunities for our skaters to learn and grow by bringing in Guest Coaches and Seminars. We have hosted Grassroots to Champions, Champion Developmental Series, National and Olympic Level Coaches as well as Guest Skaters. We are always looking for ideas for the upcoming year for the skaters! Contact us with suggestions: president@texasgulfcoastfsc.org.

Full US Figure Skating Membership

Your Membership includes and an annual subscription to the award-winning SKATING magazine.

Financial Stipends

Financial Stipends are awarded to eligible Full Home Club member skaters who compete in qualifying competitions at the highest competitive level. This is based annually on the financial strength of TGCFSC. For additional information please refer to the Guidelines for Skater Stipends.

Critiques of Skating Programs

 National and International Competition Judges are brought in to evaluate skater’s programs. In addition to competition-level scoring, these critiques include a private discussion among skater, judge, and coach. This is very beneficial during competition season!

Competitions

Our Club hosts Sugar Skate in late March/early April which is a full competition with early season critiques for the upper-level skaters and  Skate Houston over Labor day weekend, which affords our athletes a chance to polish and refine programs for Southwestern Regionals in early October.
