About Friends of Dartmouth Figure Skating
Friends of Dartmouth Figure Skating are alumni, parents, friends, and others who wish to support the Team. Created in the summer of 2004 shortly after the Team's first national title, the Friends of Dartmouth Figure Skating ensure the future success of figure skating at the College through their generosity and support.
Although we are a Club Sport, we share many similarities with other varsity programs at Dartmouth. Our professional coaching staff makes a year round commitment to train Dartmouth's figure skaters with the goal of having the Team be competitive at the highest collegiate level of competition. Since the team was founded in 1997, we have achieved six National Championship titles, and as we look towards the 2014-2015 season, we seek to carry on a tradition of excellence. The Team's hard work pays off: we have achieved six National Championship titles.
With a modest contribution from the Club Sports Budget, we rely primarily on generous donations from our Friends to cover the Team's annual expenses. Since the Teams inception, we have been dedicated to keeping the costs to individual skaters at an absolute minimum.
Following College guidelines, the Team sends only one request for donations per year to its Friends. Friends can also expect to receive a few additional communications throughout the year reporting on the Team's progress.
To all of you who have supported the Team in the past, or are looking toward supporting us in the future, we deeply appreciate your generosity!
