Have you heard about the US Figure Skating Axel Club?
U.S. Figure Skating members who land their Axel are encouraged to apply to the Axel Club. Inductees will receive an official Axel Club membership certificate, a recognition gift, listing on the Axel Club Hall of Fame page on Learn to Skate USA and U.S. Figure Skating websites and the opportunity to be featured in Axel Club marketing materials.
“There are a few firsts in life you never forget, and in a skater’s life nothing is more exciting than landing your first Axel. That’s why we started the Axel Club — to commemorate all skaters’ accomplishment of landing their first Axel, even if it was long ago.”Susi Wehrli McLaughlin, the senior director of membership at U.S. Figure Skating
New to the program is the Axel Emeritus Club, an opportunity for skaters who landed their Axel more than a few years ago to join and celebrate their Axel achievement, even years later. To join, skaters must be either an active member of Learn to Skate USA or current full member of U.S. Figure Skating and able to provide a witness to verify the skater landed the Axel.
Central Florida Figure Skating is excited to showcase our skaters in the USFS Axel Club and in our own Axel Club. Here’s how to join:
- Step 1: Go to usfigureskating.org/axelclub and fill out the form and submit a photo or video.
- Step 2: Send the same information to our club at firstname.lastname@example.org or simply forward your submission confirmation email from US Figure Skating.
We will compile all submissions to create a video montage for our website. All skaters in the Axel Club will be recognized on our club website as well. We look forward to recognizing our awesome skaters!!
