If you watched the 2014 Winter Olympics, you saw American skaters competing on the world stage — and winning Gold and Silver medals! We at the Eugene Figure Skating Club (EFSC) support our local competitive and recreational skaters on a more modest scale, but we are equally committed to our sport and to Lane County’s ice skating community. We offer the only ‘Learn to Skate USA’ and ‘Freestyle skating’ programs between Portland and Medford. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and a member club of U.S. Figure Skating and the Oregon Skating Council.
We have recently established a sponsorship program in which local businesses support the continued growth of figure skating in our community. Such a sponsorship program permits us to undertake the kind of sustained, long-term planning and development that constantly soliciting one-time contributions simply doesn’t allow. We believe this model is essential to establishing a more solid, stable foundation that our skaters need and deserve. Our goals include:
— Increasing the hours of ‘freestyle’ ice available for competitive skaters;
— Introducing ice skating to a broader range of prospective students through outreach to schools and community groups;
— Establishing a scholarship fund for skaters in need; and
— Organizing an end-of-summer skating camp every August.
This is an ambitious agenda. But we would like you to consider becoming a sponsor of the Eugene Figure Skating Club. For more information, please contact EFSC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
