Many AFSC skaters have been members of the club since elementary school, and have built their skills over a number
of years. Others are new to the sport and loving the challenge of working with top class USFSA coaches who travel to teach kids from Cody and the surrounding area as far as Billings) for 22 weeks a year. Kids in this area are lucky to have this fantastic opportunity.
Some kids skate competitively and others purely for fun, but irrespective of skill level, skating teaches everyone that most valuable of life lesson... GET BACK UP!

The club is fully affiliated to the US Figure Skating Association and is run by volunteer parents.
The club is not a part of the Riley Arena, or the Cody Rec Center.
