* Donation (SCNY 1863 Society):


The Skating Club of New York provided a wonderful source of community to me during my career. I’m happy to support the current and future generations by contributing to the fund.

- Sarah Hughes, 2002 Olympic Gold Medalist

SCNY has consistently made such a difference in my skating career! I love the idea of being able to give back in this small way and improve their ability to help future athletes! I hope you will consider helping the future too!” 

- Danny O'Shea, Team USA, 2016 U.S. Pairs Champion and 2018 Four Continents Pairs Champion

The 1863 Society was established by the Skating Club of New York in 2018 to commemorate now-160 years of service to the New York, United States and world skating community. During that period, the club has been home to tens of thousands of New York-area recreational and competitive athletes, developed hundreds of national champions, administered thousands of US Figure Skating test sessions, and hosted hundreds of competitions and exhibitions. In addition, the club each year devotes tens of thousands of dollars to: direct scholarships for its up-and-coming and elite skaters; subsidized “club ice” for its members; and financial assistance for its teams.
All this costs money – more than the organization receives from competition fees, membership dues and test fees. To bridge the gap, we sell spirit wear, conduct auctions and host occasional fundraisers. Our 150th year gala in January 2014 was a wonderful example, one which enabled us to increase substantially our commitment to the SCNY athletic scholarship fund.

The 1863 Society is a cumulative honor roll of anyone who has made a cash donation – however small – to the Skating Club of New York and its non-profit, community-based mission.

Whether you skate on club ice sessions or at club rinks, compete in SCNY competitions, are a part of one of our Synchro teams, are an alum, or just a fan of SCNY, we hope you and your family will consider making a contribution of $18.63, $186.30 or any amount to the SCNY 1863 Society – your 100% tax-deductible donation will help us underwrite and expand our annual initiatives, competitions, ice shows, etc, and will allow us to continue to support our community service efforts.

Team USA brought home three medals, including two golds, at the ISU World Junior Figure Skating Championships 2022 in Tallinn, Estonia and SCNY members won two of those medals! 

In the ice dance competition, the Browns became world champions, leading an American contingent which saw all three U.S. teams finish in the top seven. After setting a personal best in the rhythm dance on Friday, the Browns extended their lead, setting new personal bests in the free dance and total score, shattering their previous personal best by more than 15 points with a combined 170.25. Skating to "Exogenesis: Symphony, Part 1: Overture" and "I Belong to You (+Mon coeur s'ouvre a ta voix)" by Muse, the three-time U.S. junior medalists won the free dance with 103.27 points.

Lindsay Thorngren set international personal bests in both her free skate and total score.Performing to music from Queen's Gambit arranged by Cédric Tours, the 2020 U.S. junior champion nearly hit 200 points with 199.42, including 133.28 in her free skate, receiving a positive grade of execution on every element and earning all Level 4s.  

Anastasiia Smirnova and her partner Danil Siianytsia (All Year FSC), won the bronze small medal in the short program at Junior Worlds and finished fourth in the Pairs event.
