About Us

The Greater Cleveland Council of Figure Skating Clubs (GCC) consists of sixteen area figure skating Clubs who belong to US Figure Skating. Delegates from each club meet several times a year to discuss test sessions, competitions, club announcements, and US Figure Skating issues. The Greater Cleveland Council is here to help its member clubs promote figure skating throughout all of Northeast Ohio.

At the next Delegate Meeting on September 13, 2016, there will be a program for LOC Chairman and/or Event Chairs of our local competitions to review the Policies and Procedures as well as how to operate the “Competition ARM.” This program will discuss the use of the Automated Registration Monitors and Practice Ice System through EntryEeze that has been purchased by GCCFSC for the benefit of the member Clubs. This ARM System eliminates the need for the use of most paper in registration, music, announcing and practice ice. For the first year, there will be no rental charge to the Clubs but there will be a refundable deposit of $200.00 for security of the IPads to be used. We hope to see Club Representatives present.
