Welcome to the Pittsburgh Figure Skating Club

Organized in 1923, the Pittsburgh Figure Skating Club is one of the oldest clubs in the United States.  As one of over 480 member clubs of U.S. Figure Skating, the Pittsburgh Figure Skating Club seeks to encourage participation in the sport of figure skating by all persons.

 

Congratulations to Olivia Strickland who recently received the Silver Certificate from US Figure Skating. These certificates are given to high school seniors who have continued to skate, test and compete in high school in addition to maintaining an exemplary academic effort. Olivia was presented her certificate at a recent school assembly. She attends The Ellis School and the certificate was presented by the Upper School Director, Lauren Laschon.
