It is time to clean out your skating closet! Starting in December, SCNV will be collecting gently used skatewear for a consignment sale. Stay tuned for more information on how to participate. (And for those parents who persevered since the last sale held in 2016, your wait is nearly over!)

Print out and bring a consignment form when dropping off items.

Cardinal Classic News
US Figure Skating has a new requirement that competitions submit a medical plan and provide onsite medical personnel during Series competitions. We are conducting a survey of resources we have among Club members and parents. If you are a licensed physician, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, nurse, chiropractor, physical therapist, athletic trainer or massage therapist, could you please send Melissa a note at

At this point, we are building a list of contacts but are hoping to identify a body of medical support volunteers willing to volunteer for several hours during the Cardinal Classic, June 2-4, 2023. We are also looking for one individual to lead the Medical Committee on the LOC (the Club committee which leads planning for the competition).

National Blades Synchro Skating News
Our National Blades Synchro teams will perform in our annual Holiday Show on Dec 11, 2022 from 1-4 pm at the Prince William Ice Center. There will be solo performances as well as performances by each team. We will be having a basket raffle fundraiser and holiday bake sale at the show to raise money for ice time and competition fees. Please join us for a fun and entertaining afternoon. Admission fee is a non-perishable food item for our local food pantry.
