Leadership


The structure of U.S. Figure Skating is built around a strong volunteer community and a dedicated staff of employees at U.S. Figure Skating Headquarters in Colorado Springs.

The leadership of the organization is centered on the Board of Directors, which consists of the president, three vice presidents, secretary, treasurer three athlete members, two coaching members, and four group coordinators.

The volunteer constituency formulates U.S. Figure Skating policy, and the staff works to carry out those policies and administer the day-to-day duties of the organization.
