SKATING Magazine


SKATING is the official publication of U.S. Figure Skating and is considered one of the sport's premier magazines.

SKATING boasts a subscription list of more than 42,000 and a readership of more than 130,000.

The magazine, which is published 10 times per year, is a full-color, newsstand-quality publication available to all U.S. Figure Skating members and subscribers. It is also available through the U.S. Figure Skating Publications App, which is available for free for Apple, Android and Kindle Fire users.

In October 2008, U.S. Figure Skating launched a new magazine titled Basic Skills Edition of SKATING. This one-time-a-year publication is mailed to U.S. Figure Skating's 100,000-plus Basic Skills members as part of their Basic Skills membership.

SKATING is in its 91st year of publication and features news and profiles on national skaters, reports on national, international and Olympic events, articles on fitness and training, sponsor news, event schedules, ticket information and results. The magazine also covers all levels of skating, from grass roots to adult and synchronized skating.

SKATING is also featured on U.S. Figure Skating Online. In addition to highlights from the current issue, past issues of SKATING magazine are available in the archive area. SKATING advertisers are also featured online.

In May 2013, U.S. Figure SKATING launched the SKATING magazine Archive, a fully searchable digital database that allows members and subscribers to access every story and photo published in the magazine since the inaugural December 1923 edition.

SKATING is a three-time recipient of the Edi Award for Skating Publication of the Year, awarded by the Professional Skaters Association (PSA).
