Compete

From nonqualifying to qualifying, Compete USA to Excel Series, U.S. Figure Skating has a robust portfolio of competitive opportunities available to members.

Competition is a central component of U.S. Figure Skating’s development platform for skaters of all levels, whether they’re looking to advance in the qualifying pipeline or simply hone their skills. By engaging with peers in a competitive environment, skaters develop lifelong skills like resilience, competitive spirit and cooperation, which hold value both on the ice and off.
