Discounts
Your membership card entitles you to attend members-only group skates, to receive discounts from our sponsors, and to enjoy free or reduced admission to Empire-sponsored events.

Membership Card In addition to a 10% discount from Zephyr Inline Skating Tours, club members are entitled to a discount on all non-sale merchandise at numerous stores when they show their Empire membership card.

Members of Empire Speed, our speedskating division, are eligible to participate in members-only events such as the Eddy Matzger workshop, Paul Marchese Race Camp, speed skating clinics taught by our resident Pro-Elites, race training program, and club races. We also participate in the not-to-be-missed world famous A2A Road Skate. Empire Speed members also qualify for huge discounts in skating equipment and apparel from our very generous sponsors: Verducci Racing, Hyper wheels, BSB Bearings, Limar Helmets, and Rudy Project. Also, the more active you are as a racer or as a volunteer, the more chances you have to win swag from our sponsors' closets. Whether you are an elite speed skater or a novice, there is always some event you can participate in.


Parties
Members receive free or reduced admission to our parties which are great for socializing with other club members and meeting new people.

Members Only E-Groups Mailing List
Members who have email can join our exclusive electronic mailing list, which we use to announce upcoming and late-breaking skating events and activities such as group skates, races, parties, and more.

Free Stuff !
Many of our sponsors provide us with merchandise which we give away to our members (usually by holding a raffle at an event).

Transpack has been particularly generous, and as a result we are able to give away free backpacks, sunglasses, baseball hats, and safety stickers at our group skates and other events. We are delighted to be affiliated with them and are grateful for their generosity.

Other sponsors include, Verducci Racing, Triple Eight, BSB Bearings, Limar Helmets, Rudy Project Sunglasses, and Hyper Wheels. Members who attend our group skates, trips, and parties have the chance to win some serious skate gear!

Cool T-Shirts!
For an extra $15 (includes shipping) you get your very own "I [Skate] NY" Empire Skate Club t-shirt.

Other Cool Things
Imagine being able to try out the latest models of skates (so new they're not even out in the stores yet) - and getting paid for it! Our members are occasionally asked to participate in focus groups for major skate manufacturers. In exchange for their feedback, participants are compensated with cash, skates, or skating products.
