Thank you for Your Donation!

SCNV is a 501(c)(3) Virginia nonprofit organization.  We were founded in 1975, and our home rink is Fairfax Ice Arena.  Our mission is to support and develop amateur athletes in the sport of figure skating and to conduct local, regional or national amateur figure skating competitions.  Our vision is to foster an inclusive organization which supports our skaters, encourages leadership, good citizenship and community involvement. 

SCNV seeks individual donors and corporate sponsors to help fund club programs.  These include:

The Competitors Fund assists eligible single, pair or ice dance skaters, synchronized skating teams and theatre on ice teams to defray some or all of the costs for competing at Sectionals and/or Nationals.
The Collegiate Scholarship Program honors eligible SCNV members who are graduating high school seniors intending to pursue a college education during the upcoming academic year. Award winners are selected by demonstrated dedication to the sport of figure skating by testing and competing, good citizenship and sportsmanship, and academic achievement. 

The General Fund enables SCNV to sponsor social activities, such as our Mentors Program, Nationals Nite Viewing party, Club Ice Birthday bashes, and so much more.
