Members take pride in what they do and are dedicated to the sport. The team prides themselves on providing an opportunity for collegiate skaters to improve their skill and take advantage of competition opportunities throughout the season. Through performances, appearances, and volunteer activities, the Northern Michigan University Figure Skating Team serves as NMU ambassadors.
