South Atlantic Sendoffs – Thank You!
Thank you to everybody who skated, volunteered or attended South Atlantic Sendoffs last weekend. And congratulations to all of our 2018-2019 scholars. We have a few plates/platters that need to find their way home! If one of them belongs to you, please email renee@scnv.org.

Athlete SafeSport
All athletes 18 years or older competing on a team (i.e. synchro, dance, pairs, theatre, etc.) with minor athletes are required to complete the online SafeSport training in order to participate in the upcoming season. Athletes younger than 18 may take the training with the consent of a parent. This training will be an annual requirement moving forward.

All athletes, as outlined above, who do not complete the SafeSport training by their 18th birthday will be SafeSport non-compliant on their 18th birthday. The athlete will not be SafeSport compliant until they have completed the training and their Members Only portal reflects completion. Accordingly, we encourage any athlete who is currently age 17 to seek parental consent to take the training early.

SafeSport Training Instructions

  1. Enter your Members Only profile at: www.usfsaonline.org
  2. Access your “Member Profile” under “Account” and click on the “Compliance” tab.
  3. Click the red “Begin” button next to SafeSport Online Training and follow the prompts. This will ensure your training records are merged with your profile.
  4. Complete the training and subsequent quiz in it entirety.
  5. If you have issues with completing the training, reach out to safesport@usfigureskating.org

If an athlete is not required to complete the training this year, we suggest parents or guardians offer them the youth SafeSport training which is formatted to be age specific. These courses require parental consent and can be found at www.athletesafety.org.

Did You Know?!
Swedes won the first four Olympic gold medals and a silver the next time. Unfortunately, they haven’t won an Olympic medal of any kind since then. That’s a drought of 20 Olympics and 90 years. On the other hand, Swedish Fish candy were developed in the late 1950s and are still popular and delicious today.
