About Us

The ISAI focuses on these main goals:

  • The development and promotion of figure skating in Ireland

  • To provide opportunities to develop proficiency from novice to elite competitor

The ISAI is a member of the Federation of Irish Sport (FIS), the International Skating Union (ISU) and the Olympic Council of Ireland (OCI).

The ISAI, incorporated in 2007, is managed by an elected Board of Directors, each Director is responsible and assisted by a committee of volunteers for specific areas. The roles and responsibilities of each committee support the objectives of the ISAI and endeavour to coordinate everyone’s effort to ensure the sustainability of figure skating in Ireland.  Each committee has the duty of formulating rules for the matters within its objectives and ensuring rules are current and meet the needs of Irish skating.
