About our Club
Welcome to the Kettle Moraine Figure Skating Club
Thank you for visiting our website!


The Kettle Moraine Figure Skating Club is located in West Bend, Wisconsin in Washington County at the Kettle Moraine Ice Center. We are a figure skating club devoted to advancing the sport of figure skating in Washington County. We also run the Learn to Skate USA program at the Kettle Moraine Ice Center. We are a non-profit figure skating club governed by a board of volunteers who are voted on each year.

The Kettle Moraine Figure Skating Club (KMFSC) is devoted to the instruction and development of the sport of figure skating in the Washington County community.

KMFSC actively promotes the mental and physical rewards of recreational skating. In doing so, the figure skating club provides the community with the only formal, professionally taught skating program in the county.

The club is solely run by parent volunteers, who over the years have devoted countless hours to making the club what it is today.

The Kettle Moraine Figure Skating Club is a proud member of PSA's Excellence on Ice program. All of the club's coaches are required to be members of PSA, encouraged to continue their coaching education to advance within their profession and obtain PSA Rankings and Ratings as evidence of their accomplishments as a coach and their level of education.

Kettle Moraine Figure Skating Club runs the Learn to Skate USA program at the Kettle Moraine Ice Center. We offer all classes including:
  • Basic ice skating classes

  • Beginning Hockey classes
  • Specialty Classes for Figure Skaters
  • Adult learn to skate classes
Skating is a sport one can participate in individually or as a member of a team, recreationally or competitively, throughout one's life. It is fun, creative and challenging. It involves the development, practice and execution of skills that one progressively learns and builds on over time. Figure skating provides a wonderful opportunity for children of all ages to learn physical and mental skills to engage in a sport that is creative, challenging and fun. As parents supporting our children in their development, we look for information that will help us make informed decisions as we support our children in their activities. We hope the information we make available will provide a useful and helpful resource about figure skating and the basic skills of the sport (info. provided from the USFS website).

Can I make up a missed class?

Due to the scheduling of ice time, missed classes cannot be made up.

Can I get a refund if my skater decides that they do not like the class or cannot make it to classes?

KMFSC has a no-refund policy on classes after the first week of each session.

How do I get to be part of the annual Ice Show?

The Ice Show is our end of season showcase of all of our skaters. It is a very exciting experience to be a part of. Any skater that is registered in a Learn to Skate class within our program, or is a KMFSC member  is welcome to be a part of the Ice Show.  Visit the Ice Show section of our website for more details with the date and times of the show. We welcome all skaters to join the Ice Show.

How do I practice my skating?

To progress through the skating classes and get the most out of your lessons, it is recommended for each ½ hour lesson that a skater practices for 1 hour on their own time. The club has many open ice times to practice. Visit the Practice Ice section of our website to learn about the times, dates, and prices for practice ice. You may also choose to work one on one with a certified coach.

How do I choose a coach?

Many skaters choose to work with a coach one-on-one to develop their skills, and progress faster. Working with a coach can offer the opportunities to participate in competitions and test sessions. Visit the Coach section on our website to learn about the coaches. You may email them directly to determine availability and ask questions. You may also ask the Learn the skate coach to see if they are available for private coaching.

What is the best place to buy skates or skating apparel?

Many times throughout the season, we offer a used skate/apparel sale at the rink during Learn to Skate sessions. This is a great way to buy used skates/equipment or to sell your skating equipment. 

How do I learn more about the Kettle Moraine Figure Skating Club or upcoming events?

Our website is continually updated to provide the most up to date information. We also have bulletin boards located at the rink with current information. Like us on Facebook or ask a club member or board member. We are always available to answer your questions.
