Take Your Seat in the Performance Center
and see the next 100 Champions
For $1,000, a seat in the Performance Center will be named for you!
Dreams, Champions, Legends … they’ve been made at The Skating Club of Boston, dating back to our humble origins skating on Hammond’s Pond in Chestnut Hill. Those early days were largely driven by the dreams of our members, who longed for a regular sheet of ice on which to glide and perfect their technique, regardless of weather. But even after the Club secured a permanent space in 1938, in its own building at 1240 Soldiers Field Road in Brighton, dreams still fueled The Skating Club of Boston. Members traveled from across the city and even from outside the state to skate on Club ice. They dreamt of perfecting a turn, or a jump, or, as long-time member Tenley Albright once said, of “trying to fly.”
Today, dreams continue to fuel the vision for The Skating Club of Boston. The Club’s new facility will allow incredible expansion to three sheets of ice, including an Olympic-sized performance center with seating for 2,500 spectators. The Performance Center is the centerpiece of The Skating Club of Boston’s new facility. Spectators will enjoy upholstered seating (seat, back and arm rests) with a clear view of the ice surface and excellent acoustics, no matter where they are seated.
The performance center will host exhibitions, shows and competitions, figure skating and short-track speed skating. It will include a state-of-the-art Bose sound system and overhead display with scores, replay videos, entertainment and information.
As we prepare to open the doors to our new facility, we’re asking our members, their families, club alumni, coaches and staff to Take Your Seat and support the Next 100 Champions at The Skating Club of Boston.
