Lindsay's Law - Ohio

 A new law was passed in Ohio and went into effect in July 2017. All parents of competitors AND competitors (19 years of age and younger) taking part in sporting events in the State of Ohio are required to complete a training video raising awareness of the danger of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in youth athletes. This is required as soon as you take part in an organized sporting event (race & camp) in Ohio and a signed form has to be on file on an annual basis. Coaches will have to view the video and review the handouts. This is now Ohio State Law.
 

To give you a head start, we have included all necessary documents here for your convenience.

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.
