Club Membership

Our club is dedicated to promoting figure skating in all disciplines…solo, pairs, synchronised teams, dance and adult. On this page you will find club FAQ's, membership forms, policies and our constitution.

AIFSC is run by skater parents who once, a long time ago, knew nothing about skating! We all have children who skate and spend long hours at the rink, so have a wealth of knowledge to share.

We can help give advice to skaters who want to compete in New Zealand Competitions at club, regional and nationally recognised level.  To do this you need to belong to a club.  We can talk you through what is involved in finding coaches, attending figure sessions, sitting skating tests and completing the necessary paperwork.
As a club we also try to organise funded training ice every year (normally in T2 and T3), we hold fundraising events and we have a separate committee to organise our synchronised skating teams

AIFSC Committee

The AIFSC committee is made up entirely of volunteers, majority of whom are parents that knew nothing about skating when they first began. Our dedicated committee meet every month to ensure the smooth running of the club. Any matters you would like to arise at a committee meeting can be sent to the secretary through the contact us page. New members to the committee are elected every year at the annual general Meeting, information closer to the time is sent to all members and available on our facebook page.
