Figure Skating in College

Miami University offers many different opportunities for students to continue skating while attending college. The path a skater chooses is based upon their experience, their goals and time they are willing to commit. Varsity Synchronized Skating, Freestyle Skating Club, Synchronized Skating Club and Recreational memberships are all opportunities at Miami University.

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.
