To be useful to adult figure skaters, a figure-skating club has to be more than just a handful of "enthusiastic" parents of young skaters, plus their coach, serving on its Board. It has to represent the best interests of the entire figure-skating community, including adults, male and female, when it comes to scheduling freestyle sessions, test sessions, competitions, and events, and in other situations as well.
Here are a few of the clubs in the New England (USA) area that we've found to be especially welcoming of adult figure skaters.
My wife Barbara and I are members of this club, and participated in several of their shows in 2005 and 2006.
We regularly compete and do exhibitions as members of FBSS.
Many figure-skating clubs are members of this regional "umbrella" organization, so check out its web site for listings of clubs, of club-related activities (such as competitions and test sessions) in the area, etc.
