Located in Parma, Ohio, Forestwood is one of 15 Member clubs of the Greater Cleveland Council of Figure Skating Clubs. Having made our home since 1962 at Michael A. Ries Ice Rink in Parma Ohio, we are a non-profit Club celebrating our 60th season.
Forestwood Figure Skating Club connects hopeful 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 60 years of experience. Affordable Club Sessions are a gateway 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.
