TOYOTA SPORTSPLEX FIGURE SKATING PROGRAM
A LITTLE ABOUT US…
At the Toyota SportsPlex, we strive to provide a safe, fun environment for figure skaters of all ages and skill levels. From beginners to advanced skaters, our goal is to instill notions of hard work, teamwork, and above all – fun! We will work with you and your skater to identify short and long-term objectives, and try to guide them towards fulfilling those goals.
The Diamond City Figure Skating Club has been our partner club since 2009. As our relationship has grown and evolved, so has the number of figure skaters in Northeastern Pennsylvania. The friendship between Diamond City, the Toyota SportsPlex, and the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (proud AHL affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins) has made our home club the most successful skating organization in the history of Northeastern PA!
