Coach It Forward: Training Future Generations

This year we are rolling out a new, refreshed format for the annual conference with all sessions taking place off-ice at the conference center. There’s no need to lug your skates and parka along to beautiful Palm Springs- bring your sunscreen instead! Presenters will utilize video so you can see and hear better, thereby enhancing your learning experience.

U.S. Open

tuesday may 21

The U.S. Open Professional Figure Skating Championships is presented by the Professional Skaters Association.

The objective of the championship strives to promote professional figure skating as an athletic as well as an artistic event. It provides quality, wholesome entertainment for the entire family. While other professional competitions include skaters by invitation only, the U.S. Open gives all professional skaters a chance to perform and compete. It has provided a platform for many skaters to showcase their talent and advance their careers.

The 2019 U.S. Open Professional Figure Skating Championships will be held at the Desert Ice Castle in Cathedral City, CA. The event is open to the public and free to attend. All proceeds benefit the Professional Skaters Foundation.
