I still hear people say to me, “We have an ice skating rink in Medford?”…Not only do we have an ice arena, we also have a figure skating club! There are about 35 members of the Southern Oregon Figure Skating Club (SOFSC) at the RRRink, located at 1349 Center Drive in Medford. These are skating enthusiasts between the ages of 7 and 77!
Some are recreational skaters and many are competitive skaters. These SOFSC skaters mostly skate at “Freestyle Sessions” held at the rink on weekday afternoons, when they practice their jumps, spins, and routines.
The club holds many social events for its members. It also hosts an “American Doll Party” in February, and presents three shows a year: exhibitions in May and September, and a Holiday Show the first Saturday in December, all open to the public.
In addition to the figure skating club, the RRRink offers many public sessions, a professional hockey team, Learn to Skate classes on Tuesday evenings, a Summer Camp for kids, a venue for birthday parties, and much more.
