The Rye FSC was founded in the spring of 1937 by Edward F. Page and incorporated by the State of New York on March 1, 1938.
The ice rink at Playland was built in the fall of 1929. The Rye FSC is a non-profit organization
with the purpose of encouraging figure skating. Volunteers maintain and support the Club.
Many national competitors grew up skating at Playland, including Olympic Gold Medalist Dorothy Hamill, a past and Honorary Member of the Rye FSC. Club members participate in all aspects and levels of skating ranging from beginner to national competitor.
Our club sponsors programs for all the many and varied facets of figure skating, including dance, freestyle, and moves-in-the-field. Members can test levels of skating as well as participate in all USFSA sponsored events.
The club sponsors a seasonal competition, clinics with renowned professionals, test sessions, and holiday events. In the late spring, we honor all who have participated in our programs with a special recognition ceremony and family celebration.
