About the U.S. Collegiate Championships
Some skaters are lucky enough to go to a college with a collegiate figure skating club. And, some skaters choose to go to colleges without figure skating clubs. Whether you are the lone skater at your school, or a member of a varsity figure skating team, you can compete at the U.S. Collegiate Championships!
The longest running of all the collegiate programs, this competition started in 1985. It is held each August, and junior and senior-level skaters from all over the country look forward to this event. This is the only individual competition open only to full-time college students!
The competitors find a friendly atmosphere, and make lots of new friends who
share their love for figure skating. In addition, skaters get a chance to learn
about U.S. Figure Skating activities, volunteer opportunities in figure skating,
coaching, forming collegiate clubs on their campuses, and even try their hand at
