General Information


  • Figure and hockey rink skates are available for the lesson program and Parent Skate at no additional charge as long as supplies last.
  • Students are encouraged to provide their own skates, with strong ankle support and a snug fit. Purchased skates should be sharpened before the first lesson.
  • For information on purchasing new/used skates and sharpening blades, please contact the Binghamton Figure Skating Club (see below).


  • Should allow for freedom of movement. Layered clothing is best.
  • Helmets/padding are strongly encouraged, especially for 4 and 5 year olds.
  • Gloves/mittens must be worn for hand protection or skating will not be permitted. Gloves can be purchased at the registration table.
  • Wear thin socks for a snug skate fit and better ankle support. Heavy socks can cause rubbing and a loose skate fit around the ankles.


  • The "practice" half-hour is for practicing skating techniques learned during lessons and for Parent Skate. Horseplay will not be tolerated. Safety is key to continued program success. Offenders will receive ONE warning. Failure to comply can result in removal from the program, without refund.
  • Food, beverage, gum are not permitted on the ice.
  • Pet animals are not permitted at the rink.


A Binghamton Figure Skating Club staffed information table will be set up during all Learn-to-Skate sessions to assist and answer your questions. You can also contact the Binghamton Figure Skating Club (see below), if you have any questions about programs, fees, payments or "GIFT CERTIFICATES".


A memorial sponsorship program is available for up to 5 children, who, for financial reasons, may not be able to otherwise participate in the Learn-to-Skate Program. Contact the Binghamton Figure Skating Club for more information (see below).

  Rising Stars Program 2016-17

Pre-Registration Required

The Rising Stars Program RSP is designed to introduce skaters in levels 4-8 of our Learn-to-Skate Program to
more difficult moves in a very small class setting. The classes will take place on Sundays on the Club ice at the SUNY Broome Ice Center.  See the table in the registration form for exact dates and times.
The skaters will be taught by a qualified coach and will learn a variety of jumps, gliding movements, beginning stroking and spins. This program is for the students who have shown interest and have progressed quickly in the regular Learn-to-Skate classes. 
The skaters may participate in the RSP at the same time they are doing the Basic Skills program.  We are hopeful that the students will benefit from this intermediate program, and will develop an interest in private lessons during the club ice time.
Please download, print out and complete the RSP Registration form from the link below,  and return it at least one week before the first lesson in the series you want to: 

Binghamton Figure Skating Club, P.O. Box 126, Endicott, NY  13761-0126
Note: This special program and its fees are separate from the Learn-to-Skate program and its fees. 
There are four series available on Sundays, which will run if there are at least 3 skaters in the class. Class size is limited to 7 skaters. The first RSP session starts on Sunday, September 25, and runs for 6 weeks. The fee for each session is $85.00 per skater, which includes the coaching fee and ½ hour practice time following the lesson.  After the lesson the skaters must be monitored by an adult or the coach (if available). 

See the registration form for more details about the procedures for participating in our Rising Stars Program.
