Athlete High Performance Development Pool
The Athlete High Performance Development Pool (AHPDP) includes singles, pairs and ice dance athletes, as selected by U.S. Figure Skating's High Performance Department. These athletes will have demonstrated the ability to qualify for the ISP in the near future.
Team envelopes award funding are based on results from the prior season. In figure skating, the team envelopes are comprised of five levels of achievement (designated A, B, C, D and Reserve), while in synchronized skating, team envelopes are comprised of three levels of achievement (designated A, B, C).
There are a variety of funding opportunities available to skaters who are pursuing their goal of qualifying for Team USA. From prize money to funds run through U.S. Figure Skating, the ISU and other organizations, these opportunities all seek to reward stellar performance on and off the ice, ensuring that funding is never a barrier for skaters looking to achieve in the highest levels of the sport.
