Intercollegiate Team Skating

Intercollegiate competitions are governed by U.S. Figure Skating's Collegiate Program Committee. The country is divided into three sections that mainly follow the U.S. Figure Skating sectional map (East Coast, Midwest and Pacific Coast). The collegiate competitive season runs October through March, with three competitions held in each section.

  • Skaters compete individually in short program and free skate singles events, solo dance, and/or as part of a team in the team maneuvers event, representing the college they attend, and earning "team points" for a placement in the top five.
  • Skaters compete in events based on their U.S. Figure Skating test level.
  • All skaters must be full-time college students, as defined by the institution that they attend.
  • Each team attends the three competitions held in their assigned section / conference.
  • The four teams that earn the most points throughout the season in each conference are invited to compete at the U.S. Intercollegiate Team Figure Skating Championships, in April.
