The U.S. Figure Skating Aspire program helps beginning figure skaters make the transition from learn to skate group classes into U.S. Figure Skating membership. Designed to go hand in hand with U.S. Figure Skating introductory membership, Aspire is intended to boost member retention, keep skaters on the ice and teach young athletes and their families what it means to be a figure skater.
