2023 Nationals Send-Off

Every year our skaters compete for a chance to make it all the way to the very top of the sport in our country - The US National Championships and National Development Camp! The amount of dedication, nerve, talent, and hard work to make the US National Team is beyond impressive and truly an inspiration to all of us at The Rinks & Great Park Ice. 

This year, we are proud to announce we have 42 entries (that's 51 skaters) entered into the US National Championships and National Development Camp - WOW!!! We are ever so proud of our skaters and will be rooting them on as they perform and compete this January 23-29, 2023 in San Jose, CA.  For more information about the US National Championships, please visit the official website

We will be hosting our 2023 US National Send Off on Jan 6 at Great Park Ice - starting at 3:15pm on Rink 4 and switching surfaces at 4:15pm to Rink 2 with conclusion at 6pm. Admission is free but we do ask audience members keep a safe distance from our competitors for the safety of our athletes as they prepare for competition just a few weeks later.
