With a U.S. Figure Skating membership, athletes begin a lifelong personal skating journey that will develop skills, nurture personal growth and foster a love for figure skating.

Register for Membership

There are two primary ways to sign up for a full membership with U.S. Figure Skating:

Join through a Club

The large majority of members join by finding a local club that can support and coach them as they pursue their chosen discipline. A full club membership gives you all the benefits of joining a club. Clubs also offer various membership levels, including introductory, subsequent and collegiate. 

To help ensure you can easily discover and browse clubs near you, U.S. Figure Skating provides an easy-to-use club search — complete with geolocation and maps to show you the exact location of the closest clubs. Note: additional club fees may apply.

Get an Individual Membership

Individual members register directly with U.S. Figure Skating. The cost of individual membership is $144 per year, which includes an electronic copy of the U.S. Figure Skating Rulebook, a subscription to SKATING magazine. Additional family members may join at a cost of $65 per year (this does not include a rulebook or subscription to SKATING). Late season applicants please note: we do not prorate our fees. Individual members receive all the benefits of membership listed above.

About Membership

Joining U.S. Figure Skating is a decision that opens a variety of doors as you choose how to pursue your personal skating journey. Whether you're chasing an international career with Team USA or going for the gold at local nonqualifying events, members have access to the tools, resources and programming necessary to develop their on-ice career in a way that makes sense for them. 

Only U.S. Figure Skating members are able to skate in sanctioned U.S. Figure Skating events, like the U.S. Figure Skating Championships.

Other membership benefits include:

  • Certificates of accomplishment for passing proficiency tests and placing at U.S. Figure Skating qualifying events (athletes)
  • Subscription to SKATING magazine
  • Individually numbered membership card
  • Coverage under U.S. Figure Skating's sports accident insurance policy
  • Special offers and discounts from U.S. Figure Skating corporate partners

There are four full membership categories: 


Available only through a member club, this full membership is open to first-time full members at a discounted rate of $30 and $24 for a subsequent introductory membership. Introductory membership carries the same privileges as a full membership. 

First Family 

The first family member to register for a full individual membership receives all privileges of a full U.S. Figure Skating membership. First family membership in a club is $60 yearly.


This membership option is available for related persons residing at the same address as a first family member. Subsequent family members can join at a reduced rate of $24 and enjoy the privileges of full membership.

Four-year Collegiate

This four-year full membership is available to college-aged members at a reduced rate, and all skating privileges apply for the four-year duration. Collegiate members can purchase this membership through any club for $70 or individually through U.S. Figure Skating for $170. Each athlete may only use this option once during their skating career. 

Individual memberships are offered at the first family, subsequent and collegiate levels and allow a skater to become a member of U.S. Figure Skating without joining a club. See above for more information on joining as an individual member. 


Friends of Figure Skating

Launched in 2001, Friends of Figure Skating has provided financial support to U.S. Figure Skating programs and athletes through annual membership giving. These contributions provide financial assistance to skaters at all levels with the goal of helping athletes compete successfully at the local, national and international levels. Friends of Figure Skating (FOFS) members are instrumental in introducing the sport of figure skating to young men and women across the country and in developing and supporting the champions of today and tomorrow.

New members can join anytime throughout the year. Our traditional membership year is October 1 through September 30, coinciding with the competitive season. You can expect to receive your member benefit mailing in October.
