The Graduating Seniors Program recognizes those student-athletes who have worked hard to pursue figure skating while maintaining their academics. While figure skating is not a traditional school sport, it requires the same dedication, perseverance, and time management as any varsity sport. It is the goal of U.S. Figure Skating to help ensure these student-athletes are recognized for those skills.
There are four categories of recognition based on competition and test achievements in all disciplines of figure skating. Student-athletes are rewarded based on their highest level of achievement at either the Platinum, Gold, Silver, or Bronze, level. Following the application review process, U.S. Figure Skating sends the student-athlete their awards certificate, congratulatory letter, and lapel pin. This year, awards are being presented to over 1100 student-athletes.
We are pleased to recognize that Elizabeth Song ’22 has been awarded the GOLD level U.S. Figure Skating Graduating Seniors Award!
The U.S. Figure Skating Graduating Seniors Award recognizes the hard work of student athletes who have participated in figure skating throughout high school; awards are given at the Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze, level based off a skater’s level of competitive achievement in high school. Selection for this award speaks to a skater’s continued commitment to succeeding in their athletic and academic endeavors.”
