Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Competitions Committee, with the Board of Directors’ approval, has announced changes to the 2021 Adult Qualifying Season.
The 2021 Adult Sectional Figure Skating Championships will not be held this season. As a results, registration will be open to all eligible athletes who wish to compete at the 2021 U.S. Adult Figure Skating Championships. The event, originally scheduled for April 14-17, will be held June 23-26 in Rochester, Michigan.
The new structure, created by the Competitions Committee and the Adult Skating Committee, is based on recent survey results submitted by adult athletes. This new competition structure and timeline will allow athletes the necessary time to train properly for competition while limiting all attendees’ travel to only one event.
U.S. Figure Skating will continue to assess the viability of this plan based on local and state regulations to ensure the health and wellbeing for all attendees. A final evaluation of the viability of hosting the 2021 U.S. Adult Championships will be made no later than May 10 (six weeks prior to the event). Registration is slated to open via EMS on May 12, 2021 at 4pm ET.
