Thank you to our donors!


We would like to extend a BIG thank you to all our Giving Tuesday donors
We are so fortunate to have such a supportive group of club members! Thank you so much to everyone who has made a donation to our non-profit organization!

As a volunteer driven 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the generous support from our donors has been key to sustain our programs and supplement funds received from membership dues, ice fees, special events and club hosted competitions.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the cancellation and shift to virtual events as well as a reduction in class and ice capacity have had a significant impact on our club's revenue.  Thanks to past and ongoing effective and prudent financial stewardship, the club's financial outlook remains positive. However, it is critical that we continue to build our operating reserve to protect the organization from continued uncertainty without a reduction in our programming and services. We remain grateful for the continued support of our skaters and their families.

For those who are interested in making a donation to the Ann Arbor Figure Skating or those who were unable to participate in Facebook's Giving Tuesday, please visit our website to make an online donation.

AAFSC Axel Club


We're so proud of our skaters and their axel achievements! Their commitments to skating are above and beyond!

The axel jump is considered the most difficult single jump and is the only listed jump to take off from a forward entry.

To view our Axel Club video please visit https://youtu.be/sVIJ0II-H7U
Ann Arbor Figure Skating Club Axels
Learn more about the U.S. Figure Skating & LTS USA Axel Club

U.S. Figure Skating and Learn to Skate USA announced a partnership to promote and grow the Axel Club, a joint program that recognizes skaters who land their Axel for the first time. Inductees will receive an official Axel Club membership certificate, a recognition gift, listing on the Axel Club Hall of Fame page on Learn to Skate USA and U.S. Figure Skating websites and the opportunity to be featured in Axel Club marketing materials. New to the program is the Axel Emeritus Club, an opportunity for skaters who landed their Axel more than a few years ago to join and celebrate their Axel achievement, even years later. To join, skaters must be either an active member of Learn to Skate USA or current full member of U.S. Figure Skating and able to provide a witness to verify the skater landed the Axel.

We Stand United


Dear AAFSC Community,

As a club comprised of a diverse membership, it is critical that we make clear our commitment to providing a skating environment that is welcoming and inclusive. In response to recent social events in our country, the AAFSC would like to share with you the statement from USFS that the club has espoused:

We stand united with those demanding justice and change. We stand against prejudice, racism and discrimination of any kind. We stand together in condemning violence against Black men and women in America. And we stand with those making a difference as we strive for further inclusion in our organization and skating community.

In these times, it's important to remember that we stand united together as one team.
We Stand United

U.S. Figure Skating has policies against any form of discrimination. We
encourage you to review this section of the Rulebook.

The specific policies can be found in Part One, Governance and Administration of the United States Figure Skating Association, Bylaws, Article II, Sections I and J (page 19):

I. We provide an equal opportunity to eligible athletes, coaches, trainers, managers, administrators and officials to participate in eligible athletic competition without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, or any other status protected by federal, state or local law, where applicable. We provide fair notice and an opportunity for a hearing to any eligible athlete, coach, trainer, manager, administrator or official before declaring such individual ineligible to participate;

J. We select members of the Board of Directors and athlete representatives without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, age, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, or any other status protected by federal, state or local law, where applicable; It is the responsibility of all members to adhere to these policies. If you experience or witness behavior that is in violation of these policies, please report the incident here.

Together we must do our part to make figure skating a safe and welcoming environment for all.
Current events remind us that we have a responsibility to hold ourselves and one another accountable in our duty to create a better society. The AAFSC Board of Directors is currently exploring opportunities to further enhance club activities in support of inclusiveness and diversity, and encourages everyone to use empathy, the power of your voice, and your actions to engage on a higher level in discussions about power, privilege and oppression, and the ways you can positively influence change.
