Please Note that U.S. Figure Skating has not extended the 2019-2020 Season. All memberships will expire after June 30, 2020. To resume private lessons, when the rinks reopen, you must have a current membership. This ensures that you have you have sports accident insurance coverage.
The large majority of members join U.S. Figure Skating by finding a local club that can support and coach them as they pursue their chosen discipline. For your convenience, I have complied the membership links for some of the local clubs:
If you prefer to be an individual member of U.S. Figure Skating and not a member by way of a club, you may renew here.
If you prefer, Basic Skills Skaters Only, can renew with Learn to Skate USA here. However, most clubs offer a Basic Skills option as well.

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. Ice rinks may be a high-risk environment.
U.S. Figure Skating’s guidelines and considerations for figure skating during the COVID-19 pandemic are being presented in three documents:
Like most coaches, Aimée is contracted independently by the rinks and is not an employee. Unfortunately, coaches are only paid when you have a lesson.

Health officials are advising about a rare but serious inflammatory condition seen in children and linked to COVID-19.
The CDC is calling the condition multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C). The CDC provided a case definition for MIS-C in a health advisory.
According to the New York City Department of Health, MIS-C is like other serious inflammatory conditions such as Kawasaki disease and toxic shock syndrome. Children with MIS-C can have problems with their heart and other organs and need to stay in a hospital to receive support in an intensive care unit.
MIS-C is a rare condition. However, because it is life-threatening, it is important that parents know the signs and symptoms, so they can get help right away.
Most children have fever (temperature of 100.4 degrees F or 38.0 degrees C or greater) lasting several days, along with other symptoms.
In addition to fever, common symptoms include:
You should call your doctor immediately if your child becomes ill.
If your child is severely ill, you should go to the nearest emergency room or call 911 immediately.
The world is currently facing a serious coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). This novel coronavirus is a new virus for which effective drugs and vaccines have not yet been developed. Amateur and professional athletic events around the world have been stopped, and teams and athletes have had to adopt social withdrawal measures, interrupting their training and preparation routines for competitions.
Given this alarming scenario, this article aims to alert athletes to the importance of maintaining a conditioning routine during this confinement period.
