It is the longest continuously-run figure skating competition in North America, older even than Nationals. It is also one of the largest and most popular competitions in the nation, with events spanning two rinks for four full days. It draws skaters and officials from all over the world and has been a proving ground for dozens of eventual national and international champions.

Mids depends 100% on club volunteers and needs your help!
Please check your calendar and volunteer whatever time you can. It is a golden opportunity to watch some fabulous skating up close, and to contribute to the club we all love. For high school and middle school students, it is a great way to earn community service.

Oona Brown & Gage Brown are the World Junior Dance Champions and Lindsay Thorngren is the World Junior Bronze Women's Medalist. 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.
