‘A Year to Remember’
Centennial Celebration coincides with National Skating Month’s 20th year
This year, skating will celebrate a number of milestone events. June 30, 2021, marks Learn to Skate USA’s 5th birthday. This January will be the 20th annual celebration of National Skating Month, which coincides with the beginning of U.S. Figure Skating’s 100-year anniversary festivities.
U.S. Figure Skating has a variety of engagement opportunities with members and fans to honor its past and celebrate what lies ahead, beginning with the 2021 Toyota U.S. Figure Skating Championships. For National Skating Month, the U.S. Figure Skating membership team is offering programs a deluxe kit option, which includes more items and special turnkey resources.
“It is so important, now more than ever, to put a little fun back into our lives and remember why we started skating in the first place,” Susi Wehrli McLaughlin, U.S. Figure Skating senior director of membership, said. “Celebrating National Skating Month is our perfect opportunity to pay it forward to the next generation of skaters.”
The centennial celebration and 20th year of National Skating Month create the opportunity for skaters to honor the past and look to the future of ice sports. U.S. Figure Skating will spend the year looking back at milestone moments throughout the decades and showcasing individuals who shaped the sport, through its digital and print publications, including SKATING magazine.
