Mission and History

Mission

The purpose of the Braemar City of Lakes Figure Skating Club is to promote and encourage the sport of figure skating under the auspices and according to the guidelines of the United States Figure Skating Association.

The Braemar City of Lakes Figure Skating Club seeks to develop each skater’s interest and potential within an environment of support, and with the highest standards of leadership, professionalism, and good sportsmanship.

 

History

The City of Lakes Figure Skating Club was established in 1959 and made its home at the Minneapolis Ice Arena.

         

In 1966 the Braemar Arena was built, offering a new facility for figure skating. Many of the members of the City of Lakes Club, plus other local skaters, formed a new club at Braemar and called it the Braemar Figure Skating Club.

In 1967, the Minneapolis Ice Arena was torn down so the City of Lakes Figure Skating Club merged with the Braemar Figure Skating Club and the combined club was named Braemar City of Lakes Figure Skating Club.
