Figure Skating

The Dalhousie/King's Figure Skating Club (DKFSC) welcomes skaters to their open ice times. Whether you have not laced up the skates in a while or are a current competitive skater, the DKFSC offers open ice times for skaters to practice and work towards their goals! Skaters wishing to join the DKFSC are required to have a background in figure skating to ensure safety of skaters on the sessions.

The club is registered with the Canadian Figure Skating Association (Skate Canada).

Dalhousie and King's students, as well as associated faculty, staff and returning DKFSC members, wishing to join the club must contact a member of the executive before Thanksgiving to guarantee their spot. After Thanksgiving, if space still remains spots will be offered to Dalplex community members wishing to join for the first time.
