Types of Membership

Primary Home Club

Primary Home Club members hold membership in SCNV as their primary U.S. Figure Skating club, and represent SCNV when testing or competing in any U.S. Figure Skating event. Primary members may be considered FULL or ASSOCIATE:  Full members are those skaters who subscribe to Club Ice.

Team Primary Home Club

Team Primary Club members hold membership in SCNV as their primary U.S. Figure Skating club, and represent SCNV when testing or competing only in U.S. Includes Virginia Ice Theatre and/or National Blades Synchronized Skating teams.

Introductory Membership

Introductory members are Primary members who represent SCNV when testing or competing in U.S. Figure skating events for the first time other than Learn To Skate (LTS). If you are joining U.S. Figure Skating for the first time (i.e., you have never been issued a U.S. Figure Skating number other than a Learn to Skate USA Membership), you and your family are invited to join as an Introductory member.

Team Introductory

Introductory Team Primary Club members hold membership in SCNV as their primary U.S. Figure Skating club, and represent SCNV when testing or competing only in U.S. Includes Virginia Ice Theatre (TOI) and/or National Blades Synchronized Skating teams. If you are joining U.S. Figure Skating for the first time (i.e., you have never been issued a U.S. Figure Skating number other than a Learn to Skate USA Membership), you and your family are invited to join as an Introductory team member for either TOI and/or Synchro teams.

Secondary Membership

Secondary membership is for skaters who have a current Primary Home Club Membership and U.S. Figure Skating membership with another U.S. Figure Skating club, and are joining SCNV as their second club. Secondary Club membership does NOT include U.S. Figure Skating membership.

Primary Home Club Membership for U.S. Figure Skating Officials/Judges

Current U.S. Figure Skating Judges and Technical Panel Officials can purchase a Primary Home Club Membership at a discounted rate. Adult skaters and parents can find more information about becoming a U.S. Figure Skating Official/Judge at www.usfsa.org or by contacting SCNV Board at president@scnv.org.

Collegiate Membership

U.S. Figure Skating and SCNV offer a special membership for collegiate skaters. A four (4) year membership is available at a 75% discount off the SCNV Primary Home Club Membership cost. At the time of application, skaters must be enrolled in college. The 4-year Collegiate Membership is only available one time, no matter how long the skater remains in college. The Collegiate Membership may be transferred to another U.S. Figure Skating club one time during the 4-year membership period. If the membership is transferred, Collegiate Members will remain Secondary Club Members of SCNV for the remaining membership period.

Learn to Skate USA Membership

Skaters new to the sport of figure skating can opt for an inexpensive Learn to Skate USA membership, which allows them to join our skating community and become eligible to compete at U.S. Figure Skating Learn to Skate USA competitions. Learn to Skate USA members receive a U.S. Figure Skating Learn to Skate USA membership card and the annual Learn to Skate USA Edition of Skating Magazine. Learn to Skate USA members are NOT eligible to subscribe to or pick-up Club Ice sessions, test with U.S. Figure Skating, or receive annual SCNV Awards. The fees paid for this SCNV/U.S. Figure Skating Learn to Skate USA membership will NOT transfer as credit towards a higher-level membership during the current membership year, so if a skater will likely progress such that they will want to compete above the Learn to Skate USA levels, or take a U.S. Figure Skating Pre-Preliminary Moves or Free Skate test prior to the end of the current membership year, please purchase an Introductory membership.
