The Skating Club of Central Ohio membership year coincides with the current US Figure Skating membership year (July 1 - June 30). The Skating Club of Central Ohio offers two types of memberships, a "Home Club" membership and an "Associate" membership.
A Home Club Membership includes membership in both the Skating Club of Central Ohio and US Figure Skating. This type of membership designates the Skating Club of Central Ohio as the "Home Club" of the skater/member.
As the home club, SCOCO serves as the local conduit between US Figure Skating and the skater/member. Membership renewals, test activity, and other correspondence between the skater/member and US Figure Skating is a complimentary service managed by the Skating Club of Central Ohio for Home Club members.
All home club memberships, that are received prior to August 15th, include one free test at a SCOCO test session in that membership year. In addition, SCOCO offers a variety of Home Club Memberships at varying membership fees. See below for a breakdown of cost and required qualifications.
An Associate Membership provides membership in the Skating Club of Central Ohio but not a membership in US Figure Skating.
This membership is typically for a skater/member that has selected another skating club as their "home club". The skater's home club will provide/manage the membership in US Figure Skating. An associate member of the Skating Club of Central Ohio includes SCOCO voting priviledges as well as allows a skater to avoid guest fees when testing at a SCOCO test session.
A Basic Skills US Figure Skating membership is provided through the Chiller LLC rinks for those skaters participating in Basic Skills group skating lessons or competitions. See your group instructor for more information.
A transition to a full membership can be made at a later date, by completing the two forms described below, when the skater begins to test and/or compete beyond the Basic Skills level.
* Membership must be received by SCOCO no later than August 15th to qualify for the free test.
** Skater must be in good standing with their home club at time of test.
