Frequently Asked Questions
When do U.S. Figure Skating and Skokie Valley Skating Club memberships expire?
All memberships expire annually on June 30 and renewed memberships are effective annually on July 1. The Membership renewal period begins each year on June 1, and you can renew for the upcoming membership year any time after that date. To be eligible for any U.S. Figure Skating tests and competitions, membership must be current. New membership applications and renewal of lapsed membership are open at all times during the year.

What is a Permission Letter and why do I need it?
A Letter of Permission is required for any competition, test, or event outside of your "Home Club." The letter confirms that you have a U.S. Figure Skating membership in good standing.
Letters of Permission are issued annually at the time of the membership renewal or application for new membership and are accessible at any time during the year on EntryEeze
How do I get a Permission Letter to participate in a competition, test session or ice show sponsored by another club?
A Blanket Letter of Permission (Permission Letter) is sent to each club member following registration. Download the PDF file and use it for each separate activity requiring a letter of permission. You or your coach can contact the competition, event or test chair to inquire if a Permission Letter is required.
If you have misplaced your Blanket Letter of Permission and you require another copy, please visit EntryEeze and follow this process:
