What is Northern Star?

Northern Star International Skating Competition is our local skating competition hosted by the City of East Grand Forks and Northern Lights Figure Skating Club. This competition involves anywhere between 170-190 Individual Skaters that compete in 6 different events that are determined between the skater, parent and individual coach. Events include: Free Skate, Compulsory, Short Program, Spins, Solo Dance and Dramatic and Light Entertainment Showcase Events.  Skaters range in age from 6-18. From various skating clubs.

Along with the Individual Competition there is also a Synchronized Skating Competition. On an average, 24-30 synchronized skating teams come here to compete and show off their amazing skills.


There approximately 12-16 judges and officials coming from all over the United States. These individuals provide there skating expertise on a volunteer basis. NLFSC pays their expenses to get them to our competition and while they are here for the duration of the competition.

Northern Star takes approximately 1 year to plan and organize. This competition is an organized effort between Parents, Coaches, Skaters and Volunteers who donate their time to make this competition a success from year to year.
