More than 1,300 events, which include performances, exhibitions and competitions, are sanctioned by U.S. Figure Skating each year.
The nine regional competitions, followed by three sectional competitions, begin the pipeline of U.S. Figure Skating's qualifying competitions, which lead top athletes to U.S., World and Olympic levels. For the past six years, approximately 20,000 figure skaters have competed at the regional level.
In addition to the many club, regional and sectional competitions, U.S. Figure Skating conducts the U.S. Figure Skating Championships and Skate America. Skate America is one of the six prestigious events included in the ISU Grand Prix of Figure Skating Series.
The U.S. Championships is the premier event conducted each year by U.S. Figure Skating. The competition features more than 250 skaters competing for national titles in three divisions (senior, junior and novice).
The U.S. Championships are typically held for 10 days in January. Bidding to become a host city of the U.S. Championships takes place three years in advance of the event, and bidding for other U.S. Figure Skating qualifying
competitions takes place two years in advance. Clubs vying for any event must meet event requirements and venue specifications to be eligible.
