General Requirements

The membership process may seem a little daunting. We promise that it’s not. It’s three organizations, all has to do with insurance, and we’ll help you glide right through it.

  • All skaters must join FMSSC as a full member after their 4th session.
  • All skaters must join the Middle Atlantic Speedskating Association (MASA), our regional association, even if just trying the sport out. Good news, though: first year is free.
  • All skaters must join US Speedskating (USS) as well, even if just trying it out. Good news again: first time skaters, there’s a $1 / 1 day pass.

General Participation

In order to make the most of the session, we need to be ready to put the mats on as soon as the Zamboni is done and get them off timely at the end of the session. This will require all to help. Please arrive at least 30 minutes early to help with moving mats, obtaining your skates and/or help with paperwork. If you arrive late, we may not be able to help you as we want to be on the ice and skate too!

Club Dues

We are aware that dues have increased substantially over the past few years – this is primarily due to increased ice costs but also additional sessions. Carole Moore or Glenn Corso are happy to speak if you’d like further details.
