2015 U.S. Championships All-Event Ticket Packages on Sale to the Public March 1
form-final Starting at midnight EDT on this Friday, March 1, all-event ticket packages to the 2015 U.S. Figure Skating Championships go on sale to the general public. This is a great opportunity to lock in preferred seats for America’s premier figure skating event.

During the month of February we held a special presale for prior U.S. Figure Skating all-event purchasers and members of U.S. Figure Skating. The great response from the U.S. Figure Skating family has helped launch ticket package sales for the 2015 U.S. Figure Skating Championships at record levels compared to when we hosted the event in 2011. This is obviously a major compliment to the great experiences that fans had in Greensboro that year. We’ve heard from “the regulars” that they are excited that Greensboro was selected for the 2015 U.S. Championships, and they want to come back for more amazing skating and a second helping of our famous Southern hospitality.

All-Event Packages provide you with tickets to every competitive event of the 2015 U.S. Championships, currently projected to include 20 ticketed sessions. You’ll have the same seat for every event. If you would like to add a ticket to the Skating Spectacular, you can include that with your order and you’ll be able to retain your same seat for the Skating Spectacular, too.

2013 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships, Omaha, NE

2013-us-championships-logo Congratulations to the Omaha Sports Commission and the hundreds of super friendly Omaha volunteers who hosted the 2013 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships, January 19-27. This year marked the 99th year of the U.S. Championships, and for the first time ever, the event included competition for U.S. titles in the intermediate and juvenile divisions. The two additional divisions, combined with the existing novice, junior, and senior divisions, added another approximately 100 competitors, an increase of 40 percent, to the athlete delegation.

The Omaha organizers had a very convenient event layout, with championship ice in the arena at the CenturyLink Center and a second ice sheet together with the FanFest in adjacent exhibit hall space. This attractive event set-up, where competition, practice, and FanFest are located in one building, was pioneered in North Carolina at the 2011 AT&T U.S. Figure Skating Championships.

Some of the intermediate and juvenile competitions and practice were held nearby at the Omaha Civic Center, a short walk or shuttle ride away. The Omaha Hilton served as the host hotel and was nicely (and warmly!) connected to the CenturyLink Center via a pedestrian skybridge. One of the young skaters was heard to remark, "You know, we skaters are used to being cold, but it sure is nice not having to go outside in the chilly weather to get to the venue!"

In the Championship division, Ashley Wagner was crowned ladies champion, Max Aaron captured the men's crown, Marissa Castelli and Simon Schnapir won the pairs title, and Meryl Davis and Charlie White continued their dominance in ice dancing, winning their fifth U.S. championship in a row.

Kudos to the joint efforts of the Omaha Sports Commission and the U.S. Figure Skating events staff for another successful U.S. Championships. Now it's on to Boston for the 100th year of the U.S. Championships, an event that will help determine the 2014 U.S. Olympic Figure Skating Team for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.


North Carolina Presence in Omaha

ice-dancing North Carolina had a presence in Omaha, where the state was particularly well-represented among the officials ranks. Scott Cudmore of the Triangle Figure Skating Club in Raleigh and Denise Williamson of Carolinas Figure Skating Club in Charlotte served as technical specialists, while Jennifer Thompson of the Skating Club of North Carolina served as a judge, and Debbie Weidman of the Triangle Figure Skating Club served as assistant referee.

Additionally, Kara Tyree, event manager at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex; Kim Strable, president of the Greensboro Sports Commission; Hill Carrow, chairman of North Carolina 2015; and Paul Wylie, honorary chairman of the 2015 U.S. Figure Skating Championships were all on site in Omaha, spreading the word about the 2015 U.S. Championships in Greensboro, and taking good notes on all aspects of the event that could enhance the U.S. Championships on their return to North Carolina in 2015.
