Note About Cross-Registered students

Students from other universities may join a Club Sport, including the MIT Figure Skating Club, only during the terms while they are cross-registered at MIT.

Note About Children

The MIT Figure Skating Club is an MIT Club Sport. The Club Sports Council (CSC) dictates the membership rules for all MIT Club Sports. Unfortunately, the CSC has decided that children of the MIT community are not eligible to participate in club sports. Therefore, we are no longer able to accept the children of MIT students, alumni, faculty and staff as members of our club.

Children covered by a current MIT family athletic card are welcome to skate during general skating hours.
