Hello to all! If you have not yet renewed your membership for 2022-23 through Entryeeze, now is the time! It takes up to a week for your membership to be processed through US Figure Skating (it is not automated) and you will be locked out of tests and competitions if your membership is not current. The cost to renew today is the same today as it will be in May 2023 so if you plan on participating this year I encourage you to join today. Also, if you know skaters and families who are skating through LTS or ISI but not through SCNV, please encourage them to join or renew through SCNV – we have special rates for LTS memberships.
I wanted to share some of our club’s plans for the 2022-23 year. We will be continuing with club ice sessions on Sunday midday and Monday evenings at FIA – details will come in August. There will also be regular test sessions run by our amazing team at both FIA and Prince William along with some virtual opportunities. There will be social events, parent education, junior board programs, events for adult skaters and more.
Be sure to register for NQS if you are skating at the Juvenile through Senior level – the deadline is coming. EVERYONE should register for the NQS designated competitions ASAP as they will be filling and might close registration early. This includes registering for Philadelphia and for the Potomac Open at any level. Also as a reminder, the NQS events do NOT provide feedback from officials so you might want to look elsewhere if you are looking for a competition with critiques.
SCNV Picnic – Sunday, August 21st – Save the Date
We will be sponsoring some fun at FIA summer training so look for information over the summer.
As US Figure Skating has changed the competitive qualifying pipeline, there will no longer be South Atlantic Regionals and therefore no South Atlantic Send-offs for our club members. Should we have members advancing to sectionals or nationals we will certainly have a send-off for those competitors as appropriate. We hope to recognize our academic award recipients at a fall/winter event with more information to come.
We will certainly have our annual holiday party in December, and celebrate Nationals Night as a club in January.
Planning will be begin soon for a Used Skate-wear Sale to be held in January.
We are planning to hold a send-off event for our National Blades teams in January as well.
Cardinal Classic DATE CHANGE – in response to our skating community we are changing the date for 2023 to June 1-3rd. Put it on your calendar now. Look for more information in the weekly emails.
Exhibtions and Critique – In advance of the Cardinal Classic we will be having a day of exhibitions for both SCNV singles and TOI teams with feedback from officials to help our skaters prepare for the season. We hope for this event to be mid-April.
Banquet 2023 – We have already picked the weekend – June 9-10 for our banquet – more details to come in 2023.
June will also be the time for send-offs for our TOI teams!
