Coaches Committee

The Coaches Committee page is an online information center and web directory with easy links to coaching essentials. Whether you are looking for coach compliance information, technical rules or educational opportunities, you can find it here.

If you have questions that are best answered by U.S. Figure Skating Coaches Committees, please email us at

Please use this format to submit IJS questions in any discipline, rule questions and coach registration questions. Please do not submit video content for specialists to "call" an element.

If you have a thought, concern or suggestion please feel free to share. The coaches committee wants your input to help set new strategies for the future of our sport.  Your comments are welcome and your suggestions are celebrated! Please be respectful. All other questions and comments should be directed to the U.S. Figure Skating general mailbox at
