The Victoria Figure Skating Club has produced champions and has provided thousands of young participants a chance to compete in this elegant sport on blades. The club was born in the legendary Patrick Arena in Oak Bay in 1926, the year after the Victoria Cougars won the Stanley Cup on the same ice sheet. It moved to the old Willows Fairground site before settling into the then new Memorial Arena for a fruitful 53-year run. The VFSC was the second largest skating club in Canada during the 1960s and its past and continuing success is attributable to dedicated and knowledgeable coaches and volunteers. The club is proud of its two Canadian champions and has treated many appreciative fans to Ice Capades and championship competitions over its three quarters of a century existence.
