The AFSC participates in multiple competitions as well as hosting our own Learn to Skate USA Competition each year. Our Battle of the Blades is part of the Central MN Compete USA Competition Series.
If you are interested in competing, the skating club provides a list of coaching staff available for private lessons to prepare for competition. The skater is responsible for contracting private ice time with the AFSC and contracting lesson time with a coach.
The Central MN Compete USA Competition Series runs January through March with events in Willmar, St. Cloud, Brainerd, Fergus Falls and Alexandria. Our club hosts the Battle of the Blades, the final in the Series, in March and is a fun, low stress competition for beginning skaters. The 2020 competition will be held on March 14, 2020!
