The 2016 Stars on Ice Tour features an amazing array of skaters this season. Olympic Gold Medalists Meryl Davis & Charlie White head up an incredible collection of superstars including Ashley Wagner, Gracie Gold, Jeremy Abbott and more in this spectacular show! For the third year, U.S. Figure Skating is partnering with Stars on Ice to offer a club program exclusive to U.S. Figure Skating members.

The club program allows a maximum of 40 skaters who meet certain requirements to perform in a group number in the show alongside select Stars on Ice cast members. To participate, skaters must:

  • Be current U.S. Figure Skating members
  • Be between the ages of 5 and 18
  • Have passed their juvenile moves-in-the-field test or pre-juvenile free skate

The registration fee is $300, which includes the following benefits:

  • Commemorative tour apparel item

We encourage you to share this opportunity with your club members who you think might be interested as it is sure to be a very special experience! Registration opens Friday, March 11 at 10:30 a.m. ET and will remain open until Friday, March 18 at 5:00 p.m. ET or until all participant spots are filled. There are two required advance rehearsals which will be led by a local coach and more information regarding these can be found by clicking the link below.  Once registration has closed, or when the maximum number of participant spots are filled, participants will be notified with more detailed information regarding the advance and dress rehearsals, costumes, tickets, etc.
