Here for you
A message from the US Figure Skating Association (USFS) in regards to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic: “Until the rink doors are open again, stay healthy and most importantly take care of yourself and your loved ones. We’re all in this together and will emerge a stronger and better ice sports community.

Official local and federal guidance on the COVID-19 pandemic below:

Per the Governor of Virginia Executive Order 55, a state wide stay at home order is in effect until 6/10, supplementing Governor of Virginia Executive Order 53 also in effect for all non-essential businesses (including ice rinks) to stay closed until 4/24. The Amended Executive Order 53 has now extended the closure until 5/8.

The club annual meeting on 5/15 has been postponed with a tentative reschedule this summer.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the president@scnv.org for further assistance.

Did you know?!
As the most visible and impressive feat for non-skaters, the jump might be the most beautiful textbook examples of physics in ice skating. Per Dr. James Richards professor of kinesiology and applied physiology at the University of Delaware, “it amounts to three components: how much angular momentum do you leave the ice with, how small can you make your moment of inertia in the air, and how much time you can spend in the air.” (Smithsonian Magazine, 2/7/2018)
