Leadership opportunity! 7/18
Your club is seeking a leader to join our board of directors for the upcoming season/term. Our ideal nominee is a self-starting volunteer imbued with a passion for our sport and skaters; fosters teamwork with peers and parents/adult members; and is honestly committed to support all club activities including test sessions and Cardinal Classic, along with our TOI and synchro team programs. Fundraising, membership retention/growth and effective customer service skills is a plus.

Did you know?!
Qualifying South Atlantic Regional Competition is still on the calendar for September 2020 but US Figure Skating has changed the entry requirements to accommodate skaters who might not have access to tests or time to train for testing. Skaters are allowed to enter at a level either at or one or two levels higher than their current FS test level. This means that a skater who has passed the pre-juvenile free skate test can enter at the Intermediate level.
