No. While the Club is based around the support of its members, non-members can also skate on select free-skate sessions for an additional fee. The only requirement is a U.S. Figure Skating membership.

There are also many other ways to get on the ice including public skate, birthday parties, and ice rentals.

The Club hosts public skating on:

  • Tuesdays from 9:40 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. for adults 18+
  • Saturdays from 12:20 p.m. to 1:50 p.m. open to all ages

Visit the Public Skating page for more info.

The only times you do not need a U.S. Figure Skating number to access the ice are during public skate or if you have rented the rink for a private event. Other than that, all skaters need to be registered with U.S. Figure Skating. Information on registering with U.S. Figure Skating can be found on their website.

That depends on your membership status and the number of skaters on the ice. If the ice is at capacity, first priority for access is given to members. Beyond that there is a hierarchy to determine who can skate when the ice is at capacity. Members and Non-Members are encouraged to call the Club office and put their name on the wait-list for their desired skating time.

Yes. Information about birthday parties can be found on the Birthday Party page. In order to book a time for your party please contact the Club office at 617-782-5900.

The rink is available to rent after the main Club hours, typically after 11:00 PM. A detailed schedule of when the rink is available to rent can be found in the Ice Schedule page.

If there is bad weather the Club may close for the safety of our skaters and staff. Closures will be given with adequate notice when possible. For more information please visit the Closings and Delays page.

Yes. Guest coaches can coach on sessions that are not member-only sessions. In order to guest coach you must supply the office with the following documentation:

  • Proof of liability insurance
  • U.S. Figure Skating Coaching Compliance Card
  • Proof of U.S. Figure Skating Membership (membership card)
  • Proof of Professional Skaters Association membership (PSA card)
  • Copy of CER certifications

All information about buying tickets can be found on The Skating Club of Boston website under the “Schedules” drop-down and then by selecting the event you are interested in. You can also call the Club office if you do not see your event listed.

If you are not a member, the only way to attend a dinner is by being the guest of a member.

Unfortunately, this is not possible. Because of space capacities in the Club’s current facility, we do not allow members to attend events if they do not have a confirmed reservation. If you don’t register for a dinner or event before the deadline your name will be put on a waitlist. There is no guarantee you will be able to attend the event if you miss the deadline. If you are very interested in a particular event, please make every effort to register before the deadline.

Free Skate and Moves in the Field tests are held on certain Sundays and Wednesdays throughout the year at the Boston and Foxboro locations. For a detailed list of test dates and more information visit the Test Schedule page.
