State Games are Olympic-style games conducted in various states. The competitions shall be open to any eligible skater whether or not they are affiliated with an organization. The only requirement is that the skater be a resident of the respective state they are competing in. Those skaters that win first through third in their state competition are eligible to participate in the State Games of America event which is held every other year. Each state has an appointed state chair that oversees the event in their state. Inquiries can be made to the state chair or to the respective sectional vice chairs or to the chair of the committee.
