COVID-19 Pandemic Impact to Club Events
Following guidance from US Figure Skating Association (USFS) in regards to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the club has either cancelled or postponed its activities to ensure that the health and well-being of our athletes, members and figure skating community continue to be paramount.
Official local and federal guidance on the COVID-19 pandemic below:
- Virginia Department of Health – Coronavirus
- Center for Disease Control and Prevention – Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Per the Governor of Virginia Executive Order 55, a state wide stay at home order extends Governor of Virginia Executive Order 53 in effect for all non-essential businesses (including ice rinks) to stay closed beyond 4/24 until 6/10.
Consequently, the 2020 Cardinal Classic competition scheduled from 4/17 to 4/19 at PWIC has been officially cancelled. The club has completed processing full refunds to all registered competitors and teams.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the email@example.com for further assistance.

Annual Banquet News
We are working on alternate plans for the annual banquet. While we figure things out, we are anxious to get started on our video! Since most people are finding a little extra time on their hands these days, we ask that you take some time to look through your photos and short video clips from last year and email the best of them to Jessica at email@example.com.
We like action shots, athletes and coaches, group shots, whatever sums up your year on the ice. If possible, please indicate in the email who is in each photo or video (or something along lines of ‘adult theatre team’ for large group photos). This will help us greatly.
We miss seeing you all at the rink. Until we can meet up again, please stay safe and healthy.
Test Session News
Both the 4/19 and 5/17 test sessions at PWIC and FIA respectively have been cancelled due to the Governor of Virginia Executive Order 55 for the COVID-19 pandemic. All future test sessions are on hold. Please contact the Test Session Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Club Ice News
To all club ice season subscribers, please note that the club has ended the season as of 3/16 due to the Governor of Virginia Executive Order 55 for the COVID-19 pandemic. As of today, all paid season subscribers have received a partial refund for March, and full refunds for April, May and June. We thank you for your participation this season, and look forward to a new session when rink ice becomes available for Club Ice.
