The Capitol Skating Fund is a non-profit public organization whose purpose and resources are dedicated to creating programs designed to promote and strengthen education, development and training opportunities in the sport of figure skating in the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area.
We accomplish this by:
The Fund was first established in 1989 with proceeds from Baltimore Nationals, and was previously known as The Washington Figure Skating Education and Development Fund. The financial proceeds of the 2003 World Figure Skating Championships were then added to the original start-up fund. In 2006, the group name was changed to the Capitol Skating Fund to reflect the organization's enhanced mission and the Fund's presence in the Capitol region to include the Washington metropolitan area of the District of Columbia, Virginia and Maryland.
The Fund is managed by a board of directors comprised of local figure skating enthusiasts, including national and international officials, skaters and skating parents. The board represents decades of experience in figure skating and has a vested interest in the growth and development of skating in the Washington region.
