The 34th annual Omaha Winter Festival Invitational Figure Skating Competition will be held February 26 through March 2 at Motto McLean ice arena. The Figure Skating Club of Omaha and the Blade & Edge Figure Skating Club co-host the event, a non-qualifying competition that is sanctioned by U.S. Figure Skating. The Omaha Winter Festival is expecting over 200 competitors, representing five states (NE, IA, KS, MO & TX) and eighteen different skating clubs. In addition, US Figure Skating judges travel from across the nation to judge this event. The Omaha Winter Festival offers events for basic skills through senior level and adult skaters that include free skating, compulsory, spins, jumps, artistic and dance. Disciplines include singles, pairs, ice dancing and synchronized skating. Admission is free and open to the public, so we welcome everyone to join us this weekend!
If you are interested in volunteering for Winterfest, we have several positions open from Thursday through Sunday. We also have convenient online registration available! Please follow this link to signup:
The Specialty Class program is a rotation of on-ice classes covering spins, jumps, edges, figures, endurance/cardio, and more. This program is geared toward skaters High Beginner and above that would like to continue training in a group setting. Participants will be instructed by FSCO Senior level coaching staff. The Specialty Class will be held every Saturday, 7:30-8:00am, for the months of October through March.
If you have not pre-paid for the session, walk-on price for the on-ice class will be $13/class.
February’s class schedule taught by Coach John will include:
- Feb. 7 – Edges
- Feb. 14 – Spins
- Feb. 21 – Power/Cardio
In addition, we will also hold an off-ice warmup class on Saturdays from 6:55 – 7:25 am as a precursor to the Specialty class. Cost of this class is one green coupon/class.
Due to inclement weather conditions, we have a change in our ice schedule tomorrow, February 2nd:
- Due to the rink being closed in the morning, FSCO Club ice (5:30 am – 9:00 am) will be cancelled.
- Our policy is to cancel Learn to Skate classes when the Omaha School District cancels school due to adverse weather conditions. Therefore, Learn to Skate classes will not be held.
- FSCO Club freestyle ice will run as scheduled for private lesson students starting at 5:00 p.m. Please check with your coach to verify your lesson time.
