What is ProSkaters?ProSkaters is an organization dedicated to educating professional figure skaters and other interested individuals about current professional figure skating issues.
Within this mandate, we conduct research to assess current professional figure skating concerns; particularly those related to equitable compensation, working conditions, retention of quality professional events, and dissemination of information.
In conjunction with this, we hope to pursue solutions to common problems that may face our performing members while they are actively employed in the world of professional figure skating.
A few more things that ProSkaters does:
ProSkaters is a 501 (c) (6) "not-for-profit" organization. It is supported by a wide base of volunteer efforts which allows the organization to keep membership dues low, and to utilize those dues to finance the goals outlined above.
