The purposes of the Binghamton Figure Skating Club, as described in our constitution, are:

  • To encourage the instruction, practice and advancement in all types of figure skating
  • To encourage and cultivate a spirit of fraternal feeling among skaters
  • To sponsor, produce, or cooperate with production of amateur ice exhibitions and shows


The Binghamton Figure Skating Club was founded in 1972. For many years, our home was the semi-enclosed ice rink at Grippen Park in West Endicott, until the historic flood of 2011 damaged the rink beyond repair.

Over the years, the Club has introduced many hundreds of people to the joys of figure skating, and from time to time has hosted famous skaters, including Adam Rippon, a 2016 U.S. National Champion.

In 2009, the Club earned its status as a tax-exempt non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, providing it additional flexibility to promote the wonderful sport of figure skating.
