about us

Colorado Skating Club is one of the many skating clubs from across the United States which makes up United States Figure Skating Association. As your local figure skating partner and your link to USFSA we welcome your participation and look forward to providing you and your family a wonderful experience!

Colorado Skating Club has been supporting skating excellence since 1972. The club was founded by the late Peggy DeLio who not only had a passion for figure skating but was also the heart and soul of Showtime on Ice, a long standing Denver area ice show. CSC proudly recognizes internationally recognized skating champions Scott Hamilton, Dorothy Hamill, and Paul Wylie as its members. CSC continues to foster great skating talent as our skaters participate in local, regional and sectional competitions each year.

CSC was founded upon important principles which remain true today: character, integrity and sportsmanship. We support our skating community with enthusiasm, professionalism and a commitment to education. We encourage your participation, foster your skating passion/discipline and finally, champion your journey through the world of figure skating.

We look forward to seeing you around the rink!

Colorado Skating Club By Laws


From CSC President

Dear CSC Families,

Greetings – I was elected as your President  for a one year term at the June CSC Board Meeting. First I want to thank Mike Maciolek for the past two years he has served as President.  Our Bylaws don’t allow for the same person to serve for more than two consecutive years as President.  Too bad because we would have elected him again!!  He has agreed to help me through this year.  Thank you Mike for your continued service to CSC!  Congratulations to Andy Bosman- Vice President, Sarah Peterson – Treasurer,  Linda DelBianco – Secretary and  ill Guerrero who is our new Membership Chair.

Membership renewal is under way as our year begins July 1, 2016. Welcome to CSC to all of the new families and skaters. To our returning families, welcome back and thank you for the time you have spent volunteering and supporting our skaters.  We are thrilled to have all of you.

Once again, we will be rolling out a membership process, called Membership Passport. This is a simplified process to help you along the path of joining/renewing your skating membership and guiding your journey through US Figure Skating. Just a reminder that our membership year runs from July 1 – June 30 of each year.  You must renew to participate in test sessions or competitions.  Please do not wait until the day before an event for which your membership needs to be active as it can take 3-4 days for processing.

As you fill out your membership forms, there is a place to note what type of volunteering you would like to do for CSC.  We have a variety of committees which could use volunteers, some are:  Cup of Colorado (lots of different jobs), CSC Website, Volunteer recruiting, Showtime on Ice, Club Ice, Test sessions just to name a few.  Volunteering is critical to make our club run smoothly for our skaters, we cannot do it without volunteers.

Over the past year we hosted 6 Club Ice Sessions Sept’15 – March’16 (open to all CSC Skaters free of charge), held our annual banquet in January 2016, participated in a the very successful Showtime on Ice (44th show) in April 2016, offered 6 test sessions Sept’15-Mar’6, and held Cup of Colorado in August 2015. Our Jr. Board participated the annual Alzheimer’s Walk in Sept. 2015 by raising funds jointly with Denver Figure Skating Club’s Jr. Board. They also held a couple of Socials this year and worked on some very fun events during Club Ice.  We can accomplish great things for our skaters/professionals/families with the leadership of the CSC Board and the support of our stellar volunteers. Many thanks!

Communication is key and important to our success. Please read our constant stream of news through our email blasts send by our fabulous web master Carrie Ochitwa.  If you have CSC News to be posted please send to Carrie and me at the club e-mail address:  thecoloradoskatingclub@gmail.com. You can also catch the latest news on our website and bulletin boards. They are updated frequently!

See you around the rink!
Kitty DeLio-LaForte, CSC President
