A competition is a great experience for a skater to showcase their skills and get feedback on their skating. By engaging with peers in a competitive environment, skaters develop lifelong skills like competitive spirit, cooperation and resilience which hold value both on the ice and off. Our annual spring I.S.I. competition is held on the first weekend of May with applications due mid-March. All levels and ages are welcome. More information and the application form will be made available late winter. 


Take the next step in your skating journey. Fairfax Ice Arena offers figure skating camps in the spring and summer, a winter holiday ice show, and an annual I.S.I. competition in May. These programs offer skaters the opportunity to learn choreography, the spirit of competition, showmanship, great sportsmanship, and teamwork. These programs are platforms for skaters to showcase their skating skills and growth, and introduce them to show skating and competitive skating. 

This year, Fairfax Ice Arena is excited to announce two ice shows held on Friday, December 15 and on Saturday, December 16. The holiday ice show is a great way for skaters, of all ages to showcase their skating skills, and learn performance skills, teamwork and choreography.
