The U.S Figure Skating Adult Competition Series is open to adult and young adult skaters in the adult 1 through adult bronze levels in the Eastern, Midwestern, and Pacific Coast sections.

Participants in the Adult Competition Series compete in both the free skate and compulsory events in at least two participating Compete USA and nonqualifying competitions, one being the nonqualifying competition held in conjunction with their adult sectional championships. Athletes receive points based on their placement and the number of competitors in each event. These points are used to determine final series winners within each section. Sectional series awards are presented at the nonqualifying competition held in conjunction with each adult sectional championships.

The mission of this program is to provide a meaningful series of events to encourage skaters in the adult 1 through adult bronze levels to enjoy a fun, yet competitive environment where they can experience the community of adult skating.

The Adult Competition Series supports the growth of adult competitive opportunities at the grassroots level. And, it improves the financial viability of the adult sectional championships and other competitions that include events for adult athletes.

Lifetime Competitor Recognition Program

The U.S. Adult Figure Skating Lifetime Competitor Recognition Program recognizes competitive adult figure skaters who have successfully demonstrated longevity in the sport through their ongoing participation in the U.S. Adult Figure Skating Championships and Adult Competition Series. It defines the ultimate success in competitive adult figure skating as being physically able to skate competitively for a lifetime and rewards competitive adult figure skaters who manage their training in a way that makes this possible. The U.S. Adult Figure Skating Lifetime Competitor Recognition Program is open to all members of U.S. Figure Skating and Learn to Skate USA who compete at the U.S. Adult Championships or in the Adult Competition Series. Athletes qualifying in the Adult Competitions Series (by competing in the minimum required events and competitions) are automatically registered in the program.
