The Capital Regional Council of Figure Skating Clubs (CRC) is an association of US Figure Skating (USFS) member clubs in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. It is a non-profit educational/athletic organization, chartered in Maryland, and run by volunteers.
The Council was established in 1975 to promote amateur figure skating activities such as tests, competitions, exhibitions and shows, seminars, and judges training and development. It coordinates these activities among its member clubs and serves as a medium for exchanging views and information concerning figure skating. The Council also presents to the USFS the combined views of its member clubs and, when requested by the clubs, represents them at official USFS functions such as meetings of the USFS Governing Council.
Since its inception, the Council has conducted over fifty USFSA sanctioned competitions, including South Atlantic Regional and Eastern Sectional qualifying competitions which select competitors for the US National Championships.
The Council hosts the Cherry Blossom Invitational competition annually in April at the Mt. Vernon Ice Rink in Alexandria, Virginia.
