Development Committee

The Development Committee is a special committee appointed by the St. Paul Figure Skating Club’s Board of Directors. The Committee consists of St. Paul FSC Home Club members, alumni, or parents/family of members with diverse perspectives and an enthusiasm for the St. Paul FSC organization, its athletes, and the sport of figure skating as a whole. The Committee’s main focus is the growth and retention of St. Paul FSC membership. They also work to engage St. Paul FSC members in volunteer roles to support the various functions and events of the Club. With supervision from the Board of Directors, the Development Committee oversees and implements Board-approved projects and activities.

Junior Board

The St. Paul Figure Skating Club Junior Board was established to create a voice for the athletes of St. Paul FSC with a direct line of communication to the Board of Directors and coaching staff. Members of the Junior Board have a shared passion for skating and serving the Club community in a fun, welcoming and supportive way. The Junior Board helps to organize activities and events, volunteers at club functions and provides service to the St. Paul FSC community.


For many, figure skating is a life-long sport. The St. Paul FSC aims to maintain connections with our past skaters, officials, parents, and supporters. If you are a St. Paul FSC alumnus and would like to learn more about current club events and achievements, please contact us at

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

U.S. Figure Skating has developed several initiatives to address the need to become a more welcoming and inclusive organization, specifically for Black, Indigenous, and other People of Color (BIPOC). These initiatives stress education, representation and visibility, and provide appropriate support to set up members of underrepresented groups for success. St. Paul FSC supports and values these initiatives. Our Club embraces the diversity of our ever-changing community and aims to be an organization open to all. The St. Paul Figure Skating Club and its Board of Directors are committed to providing equitable policies, accessibility, and open channels for dialogue as a part of its core values.

Who can buy ice at Pleasant Arena?

Pleasant Arena is a Ramsey County facility. The St. Paul Figure Skating Club purchases the ice directly from the County and sells it to members to recoup those costs. Ice is sold through Entryeeze. Anyone purchasing ice must be a member of a U.S. Figure Skating affiliated club. If you are not a member of St. Paul FSC, please submit a request for a guest membership on the St. Paul FSC Entryeeze website. Your request will be reviewed by the Skating Director and, likely, approved. You will be notified via email when you are able to login to purchase ice.


How can I buy ice at Pleasant Arena?

Ice purchases must be completed through EntryEeze. Once you’ve accessed St. Paul FSC’s EntryEeze site, select the appropriate link that applies to you (i.e. existing member, guest skater, etc.). If you have not created an account previously, you will need to do so to purchase ice time. From there, select the ice time you wish to purchase. You may purchase by contract or by individual sessions. Installment payments are available if purchasing an ice contract. All individual sessions must be paid in full at the time of purchase.


What is the difference between purchasing an ice contract and purchasing individual sessions? 

Skaters will have the option to CONTRACT for sessions or to purchase INDIVIDUAL SESSIONS. The benefits of CONTRACTING for ice are:

  • Contracted ice provides a savings per session (based on type of membership)

  • Contract purchases are guaranteed for the date(s) and time(s) purchased                     

  • The option of 3 payment installations is only available for contracted ice buyers

    • 34% will be charged the day you submit your contract, 33% is due a third of the way through the contract and 33% is due at the start of the final third. 



  • All purchases must be paid in full at time of purchase.  

  • Session purchases are NOT eligible for the installment plan

  • The cost per session is more expensive

  • Session purchases MUST BE MADE NO LESS THAN 8:00 PM THE NIGHT BEFORE - no same day ice purchases will be allowed.


How do I find a private lesson coach for my skater? 

Please email Skating Director Ben Miller Reisman ( with your skater’s age, test levels passed, and general goals within the sport. The Director will review your request and provide suggestions based on the information provided.
