Hispanic Heritage Month

National Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the histories, cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx people whose ancestors came from Mexico, Puerto Rico, the Caribbean, Spain, and Central and South America.

U.S. Figure Skating is proud to continue to observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 through October 15 by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx people whose ancestors came from Mexico, Puerto Rico, the Caribbean, Spain, and Central and South America. We recognize that Hispanic and Latinx heritage adds to our culture within figure skating and is something to be valued and celebrated. We believe that heritage is important because it provides people with a sense of identity, community and pride and when we take time to value others and their diverse cultures and community, we intentionally create a sense of belonging and environment in our sport.
