About Us

We provide one of the best Figure Skating opportunities in the State of Vermont

The Barre Figure Skating Club (BFSC) is a 501c3 non-profit organization that has been providing figure skating to the local area youth for the last 49 years.

Our program is sanctioned by both the United States Figure Skating Association (USFSA) and Learn to Skate USA.

BFSC primarily serves residents in the Washington County area. The majority of our skaters are children ages 4 to 18, but adults are also welcomed.

We have approximately 80 skaters in the club during each season.


The Barre Figure Skating Club is a 501c3 nonprofit and operates solely on volunteer work from our skaters and parents. We encourage parents to attend monthly board meetings and take an active part in the club
