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


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.
