About the Wichita Figure Skating Club
The Wichita Figure Skating Club (WFSC) was established in 1932 and became a full member of the United States Figure Skating Association in 1941. In 1946, the WFSC was incorporated as a non-profit organization.
The purpose of the WFSC is to encourage the instruction, practice, and advancement of the members in any or all of the disciplines of figure skating, up to and including participation at national and international levels; to encourage and cultivate a spirit of harmony and fraternal feeling among ice skaters; and to carry out the general policies and objectives of United States Figure Skating.
The Wichita Ice Center is the current home of the WFSC located at 505 West Maple in Wichita, Kansas. The WFSC has hosted many regional and sectional competitions over the years on the Olympic and NHL rinks. The club also proudly hosts the annual Wichita Mid-Continent Classic competition.
“Ice skating is important to the city of Wichita as our annual Mid-Continent Classic Competition held each August has approximately 125 skaters competing in the event. This event brings skaters into Wichita from all over the Midwest. In addition, Wichita is hosting the Synchro National Competition being held in January 2018 and is expected to bring in 3.5 million in revenue for the city.” - Pat Bybee Wichita Figure Skating Board Member
