“This is a first-rate sports event for the region, and for the governing body to select Greater Lansing to host is a huge win,” said Mike Price, Executive Director of the GLSA. “Our resume of past successful ice sports events combined with the strength of our regional ice sports partners was a key to getting this event, which will have all kinds of positive impact on the community as a whole.”
This event is two events merged into one. First, the Mid-western Sectionals Singles Final will bring skaters from the Midwest Region to compete for a spot at the 2023 U.S Figure Skating Championships or the U.S Figure Skating’s National High Performance Development Camp in San Jose. The U.S. Pairs Final will bring approximately 60 pairs of teams from across the country for their final event and the opportunity to compete at the 2023 U.S. Figure Skating Championships.
