Volunteers Needed. As with any competition, it is the volunteers that make the competition fun and enjoyable for all participants whether they are skaters, parents, or spectators! It is a great opportunity to support the club, make new friend, learn new skills, collect service hours, and see what happens behind the scenes of a competition. Check back frequently for links to the volunteer opportunities for the Rising Stars competition.


Exhibitions

The Northern Blades NSC Figure Skating Club will be hosting monthly exhibitions open to all Club skaters. The exhibitions are a chance for you to practice your programs in front of friends and family! It can be either an ISI or USFS program. This is an excellent way to prepare for an upcoming test or competition. The exhibition schedule and sign-up form links are below.

Volunteer Hours

Previously, Northern Blades NSC Figure Skating Club has manually entered and tracked all members volunteer hours, but, starting now, we have found a way for members to track, monitor and record their own hours. The website is called Track if Forward and it allows you, the member, to enter and track your volunteer hours. It is very simple to use and you can even download an app right on your phone! No more filling out paperwork and hoping at the end of the year, that all of your hours were recorded. No more wondering how many hours you have left to complete.

Log in now to Track It Forward
