2018 Spring Skate Festival Application Available Now!
The Skating Club of WNY is a member of the U.S. Figure Skating Association (USFS). The USFS is the National Governing Body of amateur figure skating in The United States. It was formed in 1921 and had only 7 members. Today, the association has over 500 member clubs and over 150,000 skaters.
Your joint SCWNY/USFS membership gives the skater the right of testing and competing through USFS. The monthly “Skating Magazine” is also included in your USFS membership dues and is sent to your home address.
We are proud to offer USFS Test Sessions at periodic times throughout the calendar year.
Please complete the SCWNY Test Application and submit at least two weeks prior to the test session date. Late Fees apply if application is received after deadline.
Guest skaters are welcome on SCWNY Test Sessions as time and space are available. Guest skaters must supply the test chair with a letter from their home club stating that they are a member in good standing.
SCWNY is the only figure skating club in Western New York to offer these funding opportunities.
