NEW Northern Blades Club Embroidery


Northern Blades uses Strauss Skates in Maplewood for embroidery on Jackets and Vest. Most jackets can have the Northern Blades club logo on the back. Some jackets (such as lulu) have seams and/or a vent that prevents embroidery on the back-for these jackets choose the left sleeve logo option.

*Any all-black jacket can be purchased to receive the Club stars logo along with the skaterís name on the front left side.

*Any all-black puffer vest can be purchased to receive the Silver Text Club logo along with the skaterís name on the front left side.

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
