ST Age Group Rules & Regulations

 
Please find the latest updated version of the Age Group Mass Start National Rules here. It reflects changes made to the number of skaters allowed in a 1000m final. As the ISU adjusted their rules to four starters at the line of a 1000m final, USS will comply with this rule. A time standard has also been implemented for this year's ST Age Group Championships. Please find them in the above mentioned rules on page 22. While in the past this has been a time 'recommendation', it is now a standard time skaters will have to meet. Times must have been achieved at a USS sanctioned meet between July 1st, 2013 and the entry deadline for ST Age Group Nationals. A cap for this years participant numbers is set at 250 skaters.
