Having made our home since 1962 at Michael A. Ries Ice Rink in Parma Ohio, we are a non-profit Club. Forestwood Figure Skating Club connects young skaters with goal-oriented coaching. Our Basic Skills sessions prepare each student for fun competitions, shows, and exhibitions. Once beginners pick up the fundamentals in our Learn to Skate program, they can move on to private instruction with the club’s Home Club Professionals, and Associate Club Professionals, which combines for more than 50 years of experience. Club Sessions afford access to USFSA sanctioned events such as advanced level competition, testing, shows, exhibitions, and private ice time on a rink uncluttered by fellow skaters or rush hour Zamboni traffic. Forestwood Skating Club is sanctioned and certified by the U.S. Figure Skating Association, the governing body that oversees testing and competitions for all Olympic hopefuls.
