2018 Coaches College

Welcome to the 2018 U.S. Figure Skating Coaches College Registration Site! 

As there is an International Skating Union (ISU) Congress this June, and we are expecting quite a few changes for synchronized skating, we will offering an extended Coaches College from July 26-28, in Boston, Massachusetts. There will be seminars for all coaches, regardless of the synchronized skating level you work with, so all are welcome to attend! Officials and coaches will be leading discussions, seminars and on-ice demonstration regarding developing and training your athletes and rule changes for 2019. There will not be an athlete program this year, however, the Synchronized Skating Summit (athletes and coaches in programming together) will resume in the summer of 2019.

Lodging and sessions will be held in the heart of downtown Boston.  No need to rent a car as public transportation will make it easy for you to get from the airport, to the hotel and around the city!
