Sponsorship Program

The Central Florida Figure Skating Club (CFFSC) established a grant fund during the 2000s known as the Sponsorship Program. This program provided financial awards to amateur athletes who met specified criteria to help offset the enormous financial investments necessary for specialized athletic training, travel, equipment expenses and competitions. We are proud to report that this program successfully achieved its stated goals. After many years of supporting our athletes in this way, the grant fund was exhausted during the 2019-2020 season. The following is a year-by-year summary of grants distributed to club members.

The grant fund achieved the following goals.

  • More than $20,000 distributed to qualified club competitors
  • More than 25 qualifying skaters supported
  • Sponsorship recipients won a combined 85 awards for individual competitions

One of our main goals as a club is to provide resources which foster the participation and development of our members in the sport of figure skating.  The Central Florida Figure Skating Club is committed to helping our skaters be the best they can be. We will continue to explore new ways to uplift our members and help them achieve their figure-skating goals thru financial support or discounts, skating seminars and education, and social activities.
