Our mission is to make advanced ice skating accessible and equitable for everyone. We are focused on growth and opportunity for all children who love ice skating. Our mission is to provide affordable skating opportunities for advanced figure skaters, with scholarships available for lessons, figure skating, synchronized ice-skating, private coaching, and USFS tests.
Overview of the Club
District Impact Skating Club (DISC), a minority-led non-profit organization, founded at Washington, DC’s only indoor ice skating rink, Fort Dupont Ice Arena in Ward 7. We serve as a pipeline for skaters from Fort Dupont Ice Arena’s Learn to Skate, Advanced Figure Skating, and Synchronized Ice Skating programs wishing to grow in their beloved sport of figure skating.
The District Impact Skating club was founded and granted interim Club status by US Figure Skating on July 25, 2020, amidst the Covid-19 Pandemic. We primarily service minority skaters residing in DC’s Wards 7 & 8 as well as Prince George’s County in Maryland.
Our mission is to reduce the financial burden and eliminate barriers, which allows access to the sport artistry of figure skating. We are a community where skaters thrive as well-rounded individuals and future leaders. We provide affordable skating opportunities to individuals that have completed a Learn to Skate program and are looking to transform their skills to become figure skaters. Providing scholarships and financial aid to purchase memberships, lessons, synchronized skating, private coaching, and US Figure Skating testing is how we choose to make an Impact. Representation matters.
