MISSION STATEMENT:

The purpose of the competition is to promote a FUN, introductory, competitive experience for all participants. Volunteers wanted! We will show you how you can help.

 

Compete USA competitions incorporate skills from Learn to Skate USA and U.S. Figure Skating introductory levels into a competitive format that can be easily and successfully conducted by registered Learn to Skate USA programs or a U.S. Figure Skating member club. Compete USA is designed to promote a positive competition experience at the grassroots level and have successfully increased skating participation while generating enthusiasm.

 

The competition is open to all skaters who are current members of a Learn to Skate USA Program and/or are full members of U.S. Figure Skating. Non-members are eligible to register for competition but must be a registered Learn to Skate USA or U.S. Figure Skating member in order to compete. There will be no more than three competitors maximum in a group, and all three will receive an award.

 

ELIGIBILITY RULES FOR PARTICIPANTS

 

The competition is open to ALL skaters who are current eligible (ER 1.00) members of either Learn to Skate USA and those who are full members of U.S. Figure Skating. Members of other organizations are eligible to compete but must be registered with Learn to Skate USA or a member club. There will be no more than three competitors maximum in an event and all three should receive an award.

 

Eligibility and Test Requirements:

Eligibility will be based on skill level as of closing date of entries. All Snowplow Sam and Basic 1-6 skaters must skate at highest level passed or one level higher and NO official U.S. Figure Skating tests may have been passed, including Moves in the Field or individual dances.

 

For the Pre-Free Skate, Free Skate 1-6, Excel, Well Balanced, and Adult levels eligibility will be based only upon highest free skate test level passed. Moves in the Field test level will not determine skater’s competitive level. Skaters may skate at highest level passed OR one level higher, but not both levels in the same event during the same competition. Skaters may not compete at more than one level in the same type event at the same competition.

 

It is very important to the success of the competition that skaters are placed in the correct divisions. If, for whatever reason, the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) discovers that a skater has been placed in a category that is below his/her class level, the chair and referee will have the option to move the skater into the proper division, even if this has to be done the day of the competition. This will ensure that every event is as fair as possible to the competitors.  It is an ethical violation for coaches to sandbag an event.

ELIGIBILITY RULES FOR COACHES/INSTRUCTORS

When hosting a Compete USA competition, it is important that you verify the compliance of each coach/instructor who plans to coach on-site at the event. You can verify the status of coaches/instructors by checking the lists on www.usfigureskating.org by going to the Coaches page and clicking on the Information for Clubs. For Learn to Skate USA instructor verification, log in to the Management System, then Program Admin, Program Management and Instructor Compliance.

To be credentialed at a Compete USA event, individuals coaching are required to have:

  • Learn to Skate USA Instructor membership OR U.S. Figure Skating full membership
  • SafeSport training completed (for coaches/instructors 18 years old and older)
