U.S. Figure Skating Centennial Celebration
U.S. Figure Skating, the national governing body for the sport in the United States, recently launched its Centennial Celebration. Founded in 1921, U.S. Figure Skating is one of the first U.S. Olympic sport governing bodies to celebrate its 100th anniversary. Throughout the year and culminating with the 2022 Toyota U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Nashville, Tennessee, the Centennial Celebration will spotlight figure skating’s everyday heroes, its iconic and inspirational athletes, the vital networks that support skaters and members clubs across the nation.
Officially founded on April 4, 1921, there were seven charter member clubs of the organization including the former Twin City Figure Skating Club, now the Figure Skating Club of Minneapolis. U.S. Figure Skating, which currently boasts more than 600 clubs and 1,000 Learn to Skate USA programs in cities and towns across all 50 States, has helped more than three million people take to the ice via its Learn to Skate USA curriculum.
