Calling all high school students and college bound skaters!

Interested in continuing skating through college?

Join several SCNY collegians, graduates and officials for an overview of collegiate skating, plus participate in an On-ice Mock Intercollegiate Team Maneuvers Competition 9 am to noon, Sunday, April 9, 2017 at Chelsea Piers Sky Rink.

Never heard of maneuvers?

In addition to free skating and solo dance, intercollegiate teams compete in maneuvers -- leveled skills competitions where each team member focuses on one or two required elements (maneuvers) at one of three test-based levels.

Sign up below, sharpen your skates, and join us for an exhilarating morning of mock intercollegiate competition and college skating orientation.


On-Ice Maneuvers (9:00-10:20 am)

Maneuvers will be done as a simulation of an intercollegiate team competition. Participants will select up to two elements that they would like to skate at their current test level when they register for the seminar (see the form below for the list of elements).



Off-Ice Workshops (10:30-Noon)

Overview of Collegiate Skating

  • Opportunities for continued skating in college
  • The difference between collegiate synchronized skating, intercollegiate team skating and Collegiate Championships

Athlete Perspective (current and alumni)

  • Structure of recruitment
  • Opportunities for leadership
  • Scholarship Opportunities
  • Available programs at all levels of skating -- Intercollegiate figure skating goes from pre-preliminary to senior

College Test Prep Info Session (Noon to 12:50pm)

  • Noodle Pro Tutors, who have worked with SCNY skaters and other athletes, will talk about how to juggle ice time, school, and test prep, and also provide timelines and advice for college prep milestones (class selection, testing, college visits, applications).


Cost: Just $25, inclusive of ice time!

($35 for non-SCNY members)
