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.

Benefits of the Young Champions on Ice Program

The program encourages additional training and involvement in special events such as participating on the YCOI Figure Skating Competition Team at Basic Skills competitions and in exhibitions and ice shows.  YCOI participants are eligible for the introductory private lessons, introductory RMFSC membership and offered discounted freestyle sessions all at an affordable cost.  The program educates parents new to the sport of figure skating and acts as a prerequisite to the competitive figure skating program (U.S. Figure Skating Testing and Competition Pipeline).  The group class setting provides social interaction between skaters fostering new friendships and having fun.
