Hotel rooms at the Renaissance are very limited, and we cannot guarantee that everyone who is accepted to the school will be able to get a room there. Also, unless you are attending U.S. Championships in another official capacity such as a trial judge, we will only be able to reserve a room for you until Tuesday, Jan. 7, (so you will need to check out by Tuesday). Each person who is accepted will receive an email with a link to request a hotel room; please do not contact the Renaissance directly.

The Judges Committee of U.S. Figure Skating will be hosting a Pairs Judges School in conjunction with the 2014 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Boston. This school is scheduled to take place Sunday, Jan. 5, and Monday, Jan. 6, in combination with the novice pairs events.

This school is open to all judges and trial judges working toward a promotion in singles/pairs, but space is limited. Applications who meet the stated requirements will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Those who attend the full school will receive 80 CEUs.

*If you would like to attend any events on any other days, you will need to purchase tickets. For more information regarding the U.S. Championships, please visit www.boston2014.com.

Note: If you are a national official purchasing non-working officials tickets, unfortunately, we will NOT be able to offer you a discount for the school. Although attending the school gives you access to watch some events, the cost of the events are not actually factored into the fee to attend the school. Instead, the $50 fee is used to offset the cost of moderator and A/V expenses.

Applications are due by Nov. 24, 2013, and must be completed online at

Applicants will be notified of acceptance by Nov. 27.
