Officials are the backbone of U.S. Figure Skating, ensuring fair competition for all skaters by enforcing the rules and regulations that govern the sport of figure skating.

Becoming an Official

U.S. Figure Skating has approximately 1,300 volunteer officials serving in a wide variety of positions across the sport. Some are current or former skaters, some are parents of current or former skaters and others are simply people who love the sport and want to ensure future generations have access to fair competition.

Becoming and serving as an official takes time, but it also has a lot of perks. First and foremost, getting to watch skating, usually from the best seat in the house, knowing you're making it possible for skaters to pursue their dreams by providing the support necessary for competitions and test sessions to be held. When you add on the ability to interact with wonderful and interesting people who also share a passion for figure skating, the decision becomes a no-brainer.
