CVSC Membership

In order to test or compete in upcoming events, skaters need to make sure their CVSC Membership is up-to-date. The new membership year started on July 1, 2018, and goes until June 30, 2019, in conjunction with the USFS membership year. When members renew with CVSC, we, in turn, renew your USFS membership. Renewals can be done on EntryEeze. Search for Central Virginia Skating Club under the Find Your Club tab.  Thanks to those who have already renewed, and welcome to new members!
