The Series started in 1999 with 10 teams and just a single competition, but has grown to 50 teams and 16 competitions.Marquette Figure Skating Club in conjunction with the Marquette Senior High School Figure Skating Club hosts the U.P. of Michigan High School Figure Skating Competition Series on Sunday morning of the Ron Carlson Marquette International Open in February. This is a 2-part competition series with Houghton High School and the Copper Country Skating Academy hosting the other half in November. A High School Team may participate in 1 or both competitions.
High school figure skaters in Michigan compete in five districts, each composed of six to 12 teams. Each school may field any or all of A, B, and C level teams, which compete separately. The A teams perform the most difficult elements, with C teams having the least difficult elements. Teams participate in three initial round competitions within their own district, and then the victors from each district meet in at the state championship.
The initial round competitions in each district are team compulsory competitions. At these competitions, there are three events at each level - a jumps event, a spins event, and a moves event.
A club team skaters can still earn their varsity letters. There isn't a Michigan High School Athlete Association (MHSAA) championship in the sport of figure skating.
