The "Young Champions on Ice" Program is a U.S. Figure Skating Bridge Program.  The program guides and develops the aspiring figure skater from the Learn to Skate USA Basic Skills Program (formally known as the U.S. Figure Skating Association Basic Skills Program) into the nationally recognized testing and qualifying competition structure governed by U.S. Figure Skating (USFS).  U.S. Figure Skating is the national governing body for the sport of figure skating in the United States.  U.S. Figure Skating is a member of the International Skating Union (ISU), the International Federation for Figure Skating, and is a member of the U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC).

Skaters transition from the Learn to Skate USA Basic Skills Membership Program into the Young Champions on Ice U.S. Figure Skating Introductory Membership Program via the Rocky Mountain Figure Skating Club (RMFSC) and finally into the RMFSC U.S. Figure Skating Full Membership Program.
