2022 Toyota U.S. Figure Skating Championships Media Credential Application

This season, we will be handling accreditation on an event-by-event basis. This application and information is only applicable to the 2022 Toyota U.S. Figure Skating Championships. We plan to offer both on-site and remote coverage opportunities. Credential applications for the 2022 Toyota U.S. Figure Skating Championships will be closed on Friday, Dec. 3, 2021.

COVID-19 Protocols
 
Subject to change
  1. COVID Protocol for Accredited Persons

    • PCR molecular test (preferred) or Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) (only approved alternative to a PCR molecular) taken within three days (negative result) prior to receiving accreditation for all persons seeking to be accredited, regardless of vaccination status. 
      • Vaccinated participants will be required to provide proof of vaccination at check-in (hard or digital copies will be accepted).
      • Unvaccinated participants will be required to take an additional antigen test on-site upon arrival.
    • All accredited individuals participating in the event for more than four days will be required to take a second, on-site test (U.S. Figure Skating will cover the cost). More information and logistics available on-site.
    • Per CDC recommendations, if you have tested positive for COVID-19 (and completed isolation for 10 days post symptoms) within 90-days of accreditation, you are exempt from the required PCR test. Proof is required via health app or doctors note. Verbal confirmation will not be accepted.
    • Masks are required to be worn indoors at all times with the following exceptions:
      • Athletes while on ice
      • Persons actively eating or drinking

Failure to meet these criteria will result in no accreditation being provided.

By applying for credentials, the journalist and his/her editor acknowledge they have read and consent to U.S. Figure Skating's media guidelines and professional journalism policy which can be found here.
