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!

From CSC President

Dear CSC Families and Skaters,

I was recently elected as the Colorado Skating Club President at our June board meeting and would like to take a minute to discuss my agenda for the upcoming years with the club. Most importantly, I would like to thank Kitty DeLio-LaForte for all her diligent work as your previous club president and for transitioning the role to me in a way that will enable success.

This year, we are going to focus on growing our club membership, engaging our incredibly talented and sharp-minded junior board and raising private investment through: sponsorship, donation and fund-raising. As we begin to tackle each of these initiatives, we will keep you up to date on our progress and look to your support to help drive them.

We are in the middle of competition and test season and many of our skaters are making big strides with both disciplines. As a reminder, please remember to renew your membership with Colorado Skating Club so that you can continue with both competitions and test sessions. Additionally, when you are filling out your membership forms, please indicate where you would like to volunteer your time to help with some of the committees that are always looking for additional support (Cup of Colorado, CSC Website, Showtime on Ice, Club Ice).

I am a firm believer in having open lines of communication. Skaters and parents should feel free to reach out to me with any ideas, concerns, comments, etc. Moreover, I would like to encourage EVERYONE to follow us on Instagram at (coloradoskatingclub) or our Junior Board at (cscjrboard). If you do not have an Instagram account – ask the skater in your house to help you out!  Thank you to Jessica Williams for heading up our FaceBook posts and Jamie Lane Youtsey for her work on Instagram. These ladies are diligent and consistent with their news posts. Please continue reading our constant stream of news through our fabulous web master Carrie Ochitwa. Our informative email blasts are sent by our very hardworking, Ali Smith Wegrzyn.  If you have CSC News to be posted, please send to Carrie and I at the club e-mail address (thecoloradoskatingclub@gmail.com).  Catch the latest news on our website and bulletin boards as they are updated frequently!

See you on or around the ice!

Chris Kanive, CSC President
