Collegiate Skating

Miami University Skating Club (MUSC)

Skaters that compete for Miami University, both Club and Varsity teams must have a membership to the Miami University Skating Club. Many former student/skaters maintain their U.S. Figure Skating affiliation through membership in the Miami University Skating Club. Prospective members may make MUSC their home USFS club, or choose an associate membership. Skaters representing Miami University in competition are required to have a MUSC membership. Students who are enrolled full time are eligible for an USFS discounted collegiate membership which is valid with U.S. Figure Skating for four years. Members also have access to U.S. Figure Skating Test Sessions held throughout the year. For more information, contact David Goodman.
