All members will be given opportunities in our club. We will work together to make AAFS stronger than the sum of its parts by embracing opportunities and being willing to help one another. AAFS members will strive to fulfill the four points of the AAFS logo: Community, Fraternity, Testing, and Competition. The Alaska Association of Figure Skaters (AAFS) was organized and incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1990. The United States Figure Skating Association granted full club membership to AAFS in 1992. AAFS encourages the instruction, practice, and advancement of figure skating. The club offers lessons to beginners through its popular Skate With Us program. Skaters at higher levels benefit from opportunities for official USFS testing and from clinics taught by local, national, and international experts. Ice Shows are offered each spring and holiday season at the Dimond Mall Ice Chalet. The Top of the World Skate was established in 1996, attracting skaters from around the state. AAFS was the host of the 1999 Northwest Pacific Coast Figure Skating Championships and the 2001 Pacific Coast Sectional Championships.
