Over the years, our skaters have earned 36 National titles at the U.S. Championships, U.S. Junior Championships or U.S Adult Championships. We also have skaters regularly participating in the U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships and U.S. Collegiate Championships as well as the National Solo Dance and National Showcase competitions. Our first national champion was Robert Scott in 1937. At the 2009 U.S. Adult Championships, Julie Keith and Mike Ricigliano retained their title in Championship Adult Dance, making it seven in a row. More recently, Alysa Liu became the Intermediate Ladies Champion in 2016.
Kristi Yamaguchi is our only World and Olympic Champion. She led the sweep of the World medals by the United States in 1991 and then earned the Olympic and World titles in 1992. She went on to a very successful professional career and continues to represent the sport of figure skating with grace and dignity. Rudy Galindo won the World Bronze medal in 1996, the same year he won the National title in a thrilling performance at the San Jose Arena.
