Credential Applications


All media interested in attending and covering U.S. Figure Skating events are required to complete a media credential application.

Media credential applications for 2019-20 season are now being accepted. You may apply for credentials for multiple events at once or on an event-by-event basis. Please note event-specific application deadlines below.

Please note that, due to space and other considerations, credentials may be granted for some events but not others. You will receive notification of the status of your application on an event-by-event basis.

Starting this season, accrediation for all Grand Prix events will be facilitated through the updated ISU OMAS system, therefore all Skate America requests will need to be submitted through the ISU. This system will also be used for the ISU World Synchronized Skating Championships 2020 in Lake Placid, New York. We will provide more information about the new system as soon as it is available.  

By applying for credentials, the journalist and his/her editor acknowledge they have read and consent to U.S. Figure Skating's media guidelines and professional journalism policy.
