[Video] The Penn State Figure Skating Team Glides To Success

Story by Claire Going

From competing in Malaysia to performing in Disneyland, Penn State figure skaters get around.

The entire club meets once per week in the Pegula Ice Arena with an unstructured practice where the team is able to practice their tricks and blow off some steam from the week. Many skaters will pay a visit to the arena more frequently during the week, especially if there is a competition coming up.

The club is collegiate level, which is the highest level Penn State offers. The figure skaters compete with other school teams, and have been individually practicing for their next competition that is scheduled for the weekend after THON.

The Penn State Figure Skating Team welcomes people of all levels of skating to join the club. Many of the members skated competitively before college and attend practice to brush up on their skills and practice their old choreography, while other members are stepping onto the ice for the very first time.

The practices are lighthearted and fun, each skater taking a turn at DJing the practice with their favorite songs.

If you’re interested in joining the figure skating team and want more information about the club, visit their website, Facebook page, and Twitter.
