  • All updated clarifications will be reviewed for all levels with a focus on the juvenile and intermediates.
  • Review of the GOE's
       Insight into the specific criteria the judges use to grade the overall quality of the spin - the GOE.

Download Announcement

ALL ENTRY FEES INCLUDE ONE HIGH DEFINITION DIGITAL DOWNLOAD OF YOUR PERFORMANCE from the Vision Photo Website.  If you sign up for multiple events requiring additional entry fees you will be able to download one performance for each event. Qualifying events will enable you to download your performance of the qualifying round ONLY.

PRACTICE ICE: 15 MINUTE OFFICIAL PRACTICE ICE SESSIONS ARE INCLUDED IN THE ENTRY FEES FOR JUVENILE THROUGH SENIOR LEVEL SKATERS FOR BOTH THE SHORT AND THE FREE PROGRAMS.

Practice sessions will be assigned when the schedule is posted. Additional practice ice may be purchased through Sky Rink.

INTERMEDIATE and NOVICE FREE (LONG) PROGRAM ONLY EVENTS:

At Mids, Intermediate and Novice Ladies qualify with their short program; as a result, only those who move on to the final round are asked to skate their long program. Because there are many more skaters who would like the opportunity to skate their long programs, SCNY has added Intermediate Ladies and Novice Ladies Free (Long) Program only events. Intermediate and Novice ladies may now enter the traditional combined event, the Free Program Event, or both. The Free Program Only Events are scheduled for Thursday; the qualifying rounds for the combined events are on Friday.

Further details will be published with the schedule prior to the competition. 


We have striven to be thorough but apologize in advance if we have overlooked or misstated any important SCNY news items or skater accomplishments. THANK YOU to everyone who responded to our emails by volunteering news, photos and footage, enabling this project to proceed. We are grateful for your assistance. The SCNY Year in Review was produced by unpaid volunteers. No club funds were used in its production.
