Guides for Reopening

  • (10/12/20) Returning to the Rinks - U.S. Figure Skating, Learn to Skate USA, the U.S. Ice Rink Association and USA Hockey offer guidelines to help clubs and programs implement appropriate policies and procedures in response to COVID-19. 
  • (5/15/20) Returning to Skating Programs and Disciplines - U.S. Figure Skating recommends a staged approach to returning to skating programs and disciplines. These guidelines are meant to help athletes transition back to the ice in a safe and responsible manner.
  • (5/21/20) Considerations for Competitions and Events - As states across the nation reopen in different phases and timing, U.S. Figure Skating feels strongly that member clubs should have a plan before considering hosting competitions this summer and for the 2020-2021 season. The following documents have been created to assist in that decision-making process.

CDC Recommendations

Please review these CDC recommendations to minimize the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19):

  • Stay home if you are sick; do not come to the ice rink and club.
  • Avoid getting closer than 6 feet to anyone coughing or sneezing. 
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds (sing the “ABC song”) or use hand sanitizer that has at least 60% alcohol. (This is especially important after going to the bathroom, before eating, after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.)
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Cover your mouth with a tissue or inside your elbow if you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash, and then wash your hands.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces regularly.
  • Monitor the WHO and CDC websites for travel advisories and follow their recommendations.
