Figure Skating International…
You can call us an one-stop-information-booth for Figure Skaters who plan to take their skating career to the next level.
There comes a time to say goodbye to your first and second… maybe even third Skating Coach at your home club and step out into the big world of Figure Skating - International.
If one day you want to experiance what it feels to skate at the top...
If you ever want to feel like those skaters in the video...
If you want to make it to the World skating arena...
You need to be where the action is!
This is where we come in!
Figure Skating International is for skaters just like you, getting ready for that next big career move and for those skaters who took that important step already. Figure Skating International
We are here to guide you through the process, from that first difficult conversation with your beloved coach, when time comes to ask yourself… is this where I should continue to train or is it time to move on and step it up a notch?
Through that stressful process of crossing the border, coming into the US or Russia to train in completely different country, with new language, different values, different customs… to the fun yet exhausting process of finding a place to live, setting up an apartment and a new life close to your new training locations.
If this is your first time going away to train, you may want to let your Skating Association or your parents do the worrying, but the process is exciting and fun too, so don't miss out by not getting involved and letting them do all the work.
If you are a veteran World class figure skater, (you've been there and done that)… you will feel at home here. The information found on this site will just make it easier for you to step out of your comfort zone and settle in a new place if you need to make that transfer to another coach, or make the difficult decision to represent another country.
Figure Skating International is here to help, to hold your hand if it needs to be held, to help you ask the right questions, to find answers, to meet new people, make new friends… after all, we know that World of Figure Skating is in fact a very small.
We are all in the same boat, so let's make the journey together, and let's make it fun.

Tell us your figure skating stories! You know… that first time you came to Canada to skate at Mariposa in Barrie and the amount of snow that winter overwhelmed everyone… but you loved it because you were from… Australia
... and this was the very first time you could built a Snowman!
Or that time your room-mate from Spain went shopping and came back with so much stuff she could not fit it in the closet and had to ship it most of it home as it would not fit into her suitcase.
Or that one time you went to Ice Challenge in Graz and came back with spectacular photos that managed to ignite your photography bug.
