Scholastic Honors Program

    In 1997 the USFSA developed the Scholastic Honors Team Program to recognize high school student athletes who have excelled in both academics and the sport of figure skating. The Honors Team program is open to all full-time high school juniors and seniors who have competed at either the novice, junior or championship levels at USFSA events.

     Athletes from all disciplines - men's and ladies', singles, pairs, ice dancing and synchronized team skating - are eligible for the program.

    Applicants are required to have at least a 3.4 grade point average (based on a 4.0 scale) or 93% (based on a 100% scale). In addition to the application, the candidates must submit a written essay and two letters of recommendation, one from a school official and one from an individual involved in the sport of figure skating.

    In 2003, Chevrolet announced its involvement in the Scholastic Honors Team Program. Chevrolet, in conjunction with the USFSA, will be providing scholarships to all team members and a  Chevrolet/ USFSA Scholastic Honors Team letter jacket.

    2011 marks the seventh year of Chevrolet's involvement in the program. Chevrolet, in conjunction with the USFSA, will be providing scholarships to all team members and a Chevrolet/USFSA Scholastic Honors Team letter jacket.
