DFSC History


Denver Figure Skating Club (DFSC) is proud to begin its 81st year as the first skating club in the Denver area. It is hard to imagine, but before DU built it’s indoor rink, our members had to skate outside at Washington Park Lake and Evergreen. Once South Suburban was built, DFSC decided to consider it their home rink. DFSC has supported both competitive and recreational skaters, including nationally recognized skaters and competitors such as: Charlie Tickner, Cassy Papajohn, Douglas Berndt, Julie Brown, Everett Weiss, and Braden Overett.



DFSC currently has over 400 members in the Metro area. We host numerous test sessions to help advance our members as well as Denver Invitational and The Colorado High School Competition. We also combine our efforts with Colorado Skating Club to produce Showtime on Ice. We are proud and honored to support our members in all disciplines from the basic skills levels to our Sectional and National competitors. We currently have members that represent DFSC in singles, pairs, dance, theater on ice and synchronized skating at the local, regional, sectional and national level. DFSC offers many performance opportunities throughout the year.
