The Central Virginia Skating Club (CVSC) was established as a United States Figure Skating (USFS) club in May, 2006.
The CVSC is a non-profit organization run by volunteers. The club is devoted to the support and promotion of the sport of figure skating. Its membership is comprised of many skaters of all levels, abilities, goals and ages that enjoy the sport along with their parents, families and friends.
The coaching staff at the Richmond Ice Zone, the CVSC's home ice, also takes an active role in the club.
The CVSC helps staff and runs local competitions, test sessions, social functions, ice shows, exhibitions and many projects geared towards the development of skating in the Richmond, VA area.
A member club of the USFS, the club also supports the Ice Skating Institute (ISI).
