Test Session Critique Deadline – 3/31
In support of our skaters as they prepare for their 2023-24 competition season, SCNV is excited to offer our second annual free skate critique session on April 15th at Prince William Ice Center. This event is free to all members. Registration deadline is 3/31.

Each skater will have the opportunity to skate his/her program and be critiqued by one of our US Figure Skating judges as well as one of our US Figure Skating technical panel official if appropriate. It is our hope that this will provide our skaters an opportunity to get valuable feedback about their new programs.

We will make sure that each skater will get an opportunity for this important event. Coaches, please email if your skaters are unable to register.
