What are your hours?

The Club office is open during club ice. For specific times, please see the club ice schedule.

Do I need to be a member to skate on the Club’s ice?

A skater does not have to be a member of the North Atlantic Figure Skating Club (NAFSC) in order to skate on club ice. The only requirement is either a U.S. Figure Skating membership or a Learn to Skate USA membership.

Do I need to call ahead if I want to skate on a session?

We do not take pre-registration, phone calls, emails, etc. to sign up for sessions. Check-in will take place in the NAFSC office before club ice. However, there is a hierarchy for checking in. Please see the Club Ice check in guidelines for check-in priority and procedures.

Are you closing because of inclement weather?

NAFSC will post all cancellations/delays through the following channels: NAFSC website (announcement bar at the top of the page and the Notifications page), Facebook, Channel 8 WMTW, Channel 6 WCSH, and the club voicemail (if unable to reach office to reset, this will not be updated).

Do you recommend coaches?

For help finding the right coach, please visit the Hiring a Private Coach page on the U.S. Figure Skating website. For information and contacts for our staff coaches, please visit the COACHES page.

Can I coach if I’m not a member or staff coach?

Yes. Guest coaches are allowed on our club ice sessions. Guest coaches from outside of Maine will incur an $18 per session fee. In order to guest coach, you must supply the following:

  • Proof of liability insurance
  • S. Figure Skating Coaching Compliance Card
  • Proof of U.S. Figure Skating Membership
