UD Figure Skating (2017)

Help support the UD Figure Skating Team

The UD Figure Skating Team is a club sports team that represents the University of Delaware. Founded in 2000, we are a team comprised of more than forty skaters who skate individually and represent the University at team competitions across the country. We are 6-Time National Champions (2002, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016), and hope to reclaim our National Title this season.

This is where we need your help.

This year, our team has 4 competitions, however, we will not be hosting a competition at UD. Hosting a competition provides our team additional funding from registration fees. Not only will we not be hosting Nationals this year, we are traveling farther for competitions.

The intercollegiate National Championships will be held in Denver, Colorado this season. This is too far for us to drive, so our team has to purchase airfare. Airfare is expensive and will be difficult for our team to afford. It is for these reasons that we are hoping to do most of our fundraising in the fall in order to prepare for our busy and expensive spring.

Figure skating is mostly a very independent sport. Most skaters grew up competing individually, with high stakes and tons of pressure. It is for this very reason that Intercollegiate Figure Skating is such a unique and special experience. As mature college students, skaters now have the opportunity of competing against their long-time rivals and friends while being cheered on by their school. Skaters are now introduced to the wonderful privilege of skating for not only a team, but for their college or university.

Your gift will truly make a difference for our team!

Your gift will truly make a difference for our team!

As a club sports team, we cannot do what we do without the support of our families, friends, and most importantly our community. Figure skating expenses are high, and teammates must pay for ice time and coaching daily. To continue competing at the elite level and to reclaim our title as National Champions, we must maintain proper funding throughout the season.

Please consider a gift to the UD Figure Skating team today to help cover competition fees, travel expenses, ice time and other costs involved with sending our team to Nationals.
