The Lake Region Figure Skating Club (LRFSC), located in Devils Lake, ND, offers a wide range of skating opportunities. We are happy to be able to say that although our ice time per year is limited, we offer all of the areas available through U.S. Figure Skating. Our club offers a Learn to Skate program for beginners; the "national" U.S. Figure Skating testing for advanced skaters in dance, freestyle and moves in the field; and synchronized skating. Our skaters participate in local and international competitions. These competitors can perform individually or in large groups such as a Synchro team. U.S. Figure Skating testing, when completed to a high enough level, can lead to our skaters becoming qualified to someday coach skating. It pleases us to know that some of our skaters have done just that and we hope to continue to broaden and expand our program to meet the needs of future skaters. Our annual spring Ice Show continues to be the highlight of our skating season. Our skating programs are held at the Burdick Arena in Devils Lake, ND. We welcome skaters of all ages!
