Who We Are:
Figure Skating Club at Pitt is a competitive club sport at the University of Pittsburgh and an officially registered intercollegiate figure skating team through the United States Figure Skating Association. We skate in the Southeast Division of the U.S. Intercollegiate Figure Skating. Our team consists of undergraduate and graduate students who all share one passion- figure skating. We are a group of singles skaters who compete at the senior and junior levels, synchronized skaters, ice dancers, and many who are returning to the ice for the first time in months and/or years. Members of Pitt Figure Skating are dedicated athletes who balance practice each week with their college schedules and strive to achieve great success in both aspects of their lives.
This is our team’s fourth year as a competitive club sport within the University. Last year due to COVID-19 safety precautions, we participated in virtual competitions by competing in team maneuvers. At these and previous competitions, we have been able to make a name for ourselves within intercollegiate competitions while taking home many awards and medals along the way in a variety of divisions. If COVID-19 restrictions allow, we are looking forward to continuing our practices and preparing to compete in our upcoming competitions.
COVID-19 has affected the entire world drastically, especially the world competitive figure skating. We are continuously working with the University of Pittsburgh and surrounding rinks to practice safely in order to successfully compete this season! Our first competition was virtual with Princeton, and we just competed at Liberty University where we placed 4th out of 13 teams. We will be attending the Blue Hens Classic on March 12-13. If all goes well, we plan to attend the National Intercollegiate Finals in Adrian, MI.
Collegiate skating provides us with the opportunity to continue our involvement in a sport that means so much to each and every one of us, but the expenses associated with these events can be challenging for our team and individual skaters. We are asking for your support to help us raise funds that will assist us in covering the cost of practice, competition entry fees, travel/lodging expenses, and other miscellaneous fees associated with the team. Any gift that is being made to the team can help our skaters reach their goals and showcase their amazing talents in our Southeast Division Competitions.
How You Can Help:
A gift of any size can make a huge difference for our team. Sharing our campaign page with your friends and family and spreading the word on social media also makes a meaningful impact. We are grateful for your support of the Figure Skating Club at Pitt!
