The Tampa Bay Skating Club (TBSC) was established in 1987 and moved into the Tampa Bay Skating Academy (TBSA) when it opened in Oldsmar in 1992. Since then, we have expanded to include members at TBSA Countryside, the Clearwater Ice Arena and the TGH Ice Plex, in Brandon.
Our membership is comprised of skaters, parents, coaches, judges, and other officials. TBSC hosts many United States Figure Skating (USFS) test sessions each year, in addition to our annual summer competition, the Orange Blossom Open, which has been held each year since 1992. Orange Blossom attracts skaters from all over the southeast every year. TBSC members enjoy freestyle ice discount at TBSA and CIA. We periodically host special skating camps, clinics, ice shows, and social activities for our members. TBSC has hosted the South Atlantic Regional Championships three times in addition to the 1998 Eastern Sectional Championship and the 1999 Precision (Synchronized Skating) National Championship. TBSC has also hosted two USFS regional training camps.
We are extremely proud of all of our skating members and we have been well represented at Regionals, Sectionals, and the United States Junior and Senior National Championships. Additionally, TBSC is the home club of the first USFS Synchronized Skating Team in the State of Florida, the Florida Sunsations.
