Columbia Figure Skating Club
Summary of Skating Rules
CFSC sessions are designed for figure skaters to get quality practice time to learn jumps, spins,
footwork, dance and programs without the distractions of busy public sessions. They are serious
working sessions and should not be considered “play time” sessions. To ensure that all skaters
benefit from the ice times, we are asking for your cooperation in conducting yourselves according
to club rules. The full text regarding Rules and Regulations for the Columbia Figure Skating Club
are published in the CFSC Handbook. The following summary has been provided to make sure
that members are aware of how they are expected to conduct themselves on the ice during CFSC
Reasonable speed should be maintained at all times.
Racing or speed skating is not permitted.
No chain skating.
No reckless skating, playing tag, or horseplay.
For the safety and enjoyment of its members, the Club general skate and freestyle
sessions are organized as follows:
Spins in the center
Jumps in the corners
No standing and talking on the ice - use the warming room.
If you fall, and are not hurt, get up quickly.
No Flying Camel, Camel spins or Backward Spirals unless in a freestyle unit,
and subject to the number of skaters on the ice.
Skaters should be alert at all times and be aware of the activity on the ice, particularly lessons
or skating requiring pattern skating such as dance, field moves and program practice. „Right
of Way‟ priorities are as follows:
1st priority to skater/dancer in a lesson doing a program
2nd priority to skater/dancer doing their program
3rd priority to skater/dancer in lesson
Tapes to be played for programs must be submitted to the music monitor. Tapes will be
played in the order submitted, unless they are required for a lesson. Tapes may not be played
a second or subsequent time until all other skater‟s tapes have been played.
Parents are responsible for the conduct of their children and for ensuring that they know and

All injuries and infractions should be reported to the designated CFSC ice monitor. Skaters are
reminded that failure to skate safely and comply with the CFSC rules can result in removal from
