Figure skating in the U.S. can be either competitive or recreational, and those learning to skate can choose either. While competitive skaters are required to participate in the U.S. testing structure to eventually compete in qualifying competitions, recreational skaters can also opt to take tests in order to continually challenge themselves and their abilities. Learn more about the USFS test structure here.
